Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

I still think I need a boost in electronics knowledge, but you dissipated a lot of confusion in me. Thank you very much for taking the time to explain all of this! I am very fond of the D-550 too! But you are saying 3K!? We don't have the 1:10 ratio there! My OCD is hyperventilating. Won't we lose a...

Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

Thank you very much Mooger! For once it feels good not having to buy another piece of gear! :D I think it's time for me to learn how to read a schematic though, because these guys' conversation flies way above my head, and I need to answer the same question for a Roland D-550 for which there is no p...

It's a Yamaha TG-77 and I found the info here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1013208/Yamaha-Tg77.html?page=203#manual Level-wise all seems good indeed, but I was worrying a bit a...

Re: Synth outputs... balanced or unbalanced?

I'm upping this topic because I would like to add one more question. I would like to go direct from a synth to line inputs of my soundcard. The impedance is 10kΩ on both sides. From what I understand it's better to maintain a 1:10 ratio between output and input impedances. How can I lower the output...
