TC-Helicon VoiceLive 3 to Compact
The VoiceLive 3 has two outputs available (Vocal and Guitar) but I choose the LEFT output and run MONO so that I can make the connection with one cable. I don't use Compact Channel 1 when I'm using the VoiceLive 3.
There's MIX button on the VoiceLive 3 that brings up a screen where it's easy to control the relative volumes. Vocal volume is set. You can raise and lower the other inputs on the VoiceLive 3. The VoiceLive 3 does not have a master volume level control. So you will need to control overall level at the Compact.. And it's nice to use just one cable from the VoiceLive 3 to the Compact. This also keeps the Compact Channel 1 free in case I need to plug in another microphone.
I use an adapter like this
|Neutrik NA3FJ XLR to ¼ inch jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve female||or||Planet Waves XLR female to ¼ inch jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve female|
|Balanced ¼ inch jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable||or||Unbalanced ¼ inch jack Tip-Sleeve cable|
OR a longer version of a cable like this:
The EWI MP-105 is a special application adaptor cable for converting XLR to 1/4 TRS. This cable is typically used to plug XLR cord into balanced 1/4" TRS panel jacks commonly found on mixing consoles and processing equipment.
The Female XLR end is wired through to the 1/4" Male TRS end as follows:
- Pin One FXLR to Sleeve of MTRS
- Pin Two FXLR to Tip of MTRS
- Pin Three FXLR to Ring of MTRS
The 1/4" MTRS end is an EWI model P292S-BKG
The FXLR end is an EWI model ES3FB-GDP
The cable itself is constructed with 99.98% pure 22ga. high strand count copper conductors.
