Setting up studio help?

Recommended Posts

Probably gonna sound completley stupid here. I've fitted my soundcard (emu 0404) and am just wondering what connection i need to connect the soundcard to my mixer, and to which part of the mixer. (Behringer Eurorack MX802A).

Cheers

Sam

looking at the specs for your soundcard it looks like it has 2 unbalanced 1/4" jack inputs.

the mixer looks as if it does balanced inputs, but this is kind of irrelevant as your soundcard inputs are unbalanced.

so, you could really just use two guitar leads to connect each of the mix (L an R) outputs from the desk to each of the 1/4" input sockets from the soundcard.

I'm assuming you are wanting to run the mixing desk as an input to the soundcard and not the other way around?

I thought it was somethign like that. So 2 leads from "Main Out" to the input on the soundcard. And yeah, mixing desk as input, cheers.

It's not irrelevant, the signal will be balanced until it's in the mixer. This way the unbalanced run can be kept to a minimum while the benefits of balanced cables (better noise rejection, phantom power capability) can be enjoyed. The unbalanced outs should (if the gain structure is set properly) be at line level, as opposed to mic level, so any induced noise will be much lower in level than the signal.
