Balanced Jack Unbalanced Plug

Post by bamse » Tue Feb 15, 2005 6:53 am

I was gonna run some cables from my Echo Layla24. You can set the the layla outputs to balanced or unbalanced. Would it be okay to run an unbalanced cord to a "balanced" coleman lineswitcher then off to a VS8880 with an unalanced cord.


Layla24 (unalanced out)--------------------------->Coleman Lineswitcher (balanced in, balanced out)------------------->VS880 (unbalanced in)

Thanks.

you can switch between balanced and unbalanced?
i have a Layla24 also and never saw that.
how do i change it?

myself, i run balanced ins and outs to/from my Layla24 to a TRS patchbay.
if i need to convert to/from unbalanced TS i use an Ebtech "Hum Eliminator".

Why would you take an unbalanced run from the Layla if the Coleman is balanced in?? stay balanced on that step?

I don't have enough cable and I don't feel like going to Sam Ash to pick up bulk again. I wanna use the Coleman and vs880 today.

You can change the Layla24 outputs from balanced to unbalanced in the control panel, at least on the Mac.
if i need to convert to/from unbalanced TS i use an Ebtech "Hum Eliminator".
How come the Layla24, VS880 accepts both then without using a Hum Eliminator? Is it built-in?

regarding: DIY Cables
Can I just get the braided shield straight down in a line instead of untangling it which takes such a long time?
