audio degradation with 2 mono to a single stereo ?

Post by boisnois » Thu Nov 25, 2021 1:44 pm

Hi all

I'm still trying to work out my final output and would be grateful for any advice. thinking of getting a endorphin.es cockpit.

am i risking any audio degrading if i went out of my stereo filter POPPLE into the stereo input of an COCKPIT with a Y - adapter cable?

2 x patch cables into a Y-Adapterkabel (single stereo mini jack)

There shouldn't be any issue with a Y-cable into a stereo jack. I'd be more concerned about an unbalanced stereo output as my main output, though, if you were planning on going into an interface, for instance.

thanks for the reply.
my plan is mini stereo out of COCKPIT into stereo jack of the DELUGE. you think that'd be a problem?

That is no real world problem unless your interface is at least 30-50 metres away or you´re living next to big radio transmitter.

Is it important to have balanced outputs for connecting with an interface? I thought the primary value of balanced I/O was for reducing interference when running long lines, like on stage or in a recording studio or whatever.
