Inserting Compression
« on: February 07, 2007, 08:00:08 pm »

I have a Mackie VLZ PRO24-4 .. I recently purchased (right before finding this forum) 3 Behringer Compressors:
MDX2600
MDX2200
MDX4400

I Have and instert "snake" with 8 TRS broken out to 16 TS

is it ok to use just the TS for the in's & out's on the compressors? Or do I need to get balanced or XLR fan snake instead?

Sorry if this is covered elsewhere.

Thank you all for sharing so much info on here Smile

Single TRS inserts are unbalanced. There are different ways of interfacing unbalanced with balanced which you can find out about by searching the forums or by going to the Rane website and reading the excellent notes they have about the subject.

You are fine with the insert snake you have.


-- When you move into bigger (well actually - more expensive) consoles - you'll start to see Insert points that are balanced (and that have separate ins and outs.
