Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

One pre amp I have (Behringer mic2200), does have line inputs, but the tube can only be access via the XLR input.

Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

No a TRS -> XLR connection will give you worse quality for the following reasons: - The XLR inputs are low impedance mic inputs. The synth's outputs expect a high impedance line input and can have difficulties supplying enough current to a low impedance input, particularly cheap, low power units li...

VERY Low output on SH32?

Hi there.
I recently purchased an SH32 and got it in the mail on this past Saturday. When I plugged it in and tried to play it, all the audio outputs are SUPER quiet. Have you ever experienced this or know of

Re: Looking to finally incorporate a laptop

+1 for the Scarlett as well. I love my 18i8 and it's easy to set up. I was skeptical of using USB for audio/MIDI connections for the longest time, but once I gave in I was glad I did.

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

I will try to use that view. It is similiar to the Lanes of Cubase from Ive gathered so far? I think my Impulse may be slightly broken. Why else would it not work to input MIDI and control my synths if it (and Automap) were working properly. Automap claims to be set-up right and connected perfectly....

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

Geez, it would be easier to pay me $200 to drive to Rutland and fix it for you :roll: 1. Can you play your synths from the Impulse when the computer is OFF and you have the MIDISport set to passive thru? 2. In the Device Setup screen, what MIDI inputs are shown as available ? 1. Yes 2. AVAILABLE: M...

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

So I got playback to work. I'm not sure what the issue was because I just waited a few days and just went back to the template I had made over a week ago.. However I also cannot play notes and have them recorded, nor can I play my synths while I the same mode to play them via the key editor/sequence...

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

I will be getting more synths, so maybe I should look into a different MIDI interface. I.e. The MOTU MIDI Express..

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

You wrote you are unable to get MIDI playback from Cubase to reach any of the synths. Does that mean like it has never ever worked? If you're using Cubase 5 and a discontinued MIDI interface you've had this stuff lying around for a few years. Have you properly installed configured the MIDIsport dri...

Re: Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synth

I guess I should have included this in my original post, but I do not use the MIDI I/O on the Scarlett because it only has a MIDI In and Out. Same with the Impulse (although I do have the Impulse connected via USB). The MIDIsport has 2x In and 4x out. I have that connected to my laptop via USB as we...

Need Help getting laptop/Cubase to talk back to my synths?!

So I will explain this the best I can and I know that it is a hard situation to help me with over a forum, but any help would place me forever indebted to whoever gives it. Let me first start by listing the equipment that I haven't/am using: SYNTHS: Cheetah ms6, JP-08, Volca Keys, Minibrute AUDIO & ...

How to find a draft that I started on the forum?

I started to write a post (in a new thread) and saved it to a draft. How can I continue that draft? I looked throughout the CP and elsewhere but cannot find my draft so that I might finish it.

Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

Most synths are unbalanced. You can use balanced cables with no issues. That's not correct, there are a number of issues with using unbalanced outputs with balanced cables to balanced inputs. You're much better off using unbalanced cables to balanced inputs, and you won't notice and difference in s...
