Recording Connection Success Stories

Learning about the different cables and connectors was pretty interesting

“I actually got a break down of each cable and connector, what they are mainly used for and how they are wired. In the studio Thomas showed me a few of them and explained how some connectors have balanced and others have unbalanced connections. The balanced connection consists of three components which are hot, cold, and ground; these can travel at a further distance and sounds better then a unbalanced connection because unbalanced has two components: hot and ground. This chapter also showed examples of patch bays, explained the purpose for them and what cables are plugged into them. I was happy to finish this chapter, it was good to learn about the basics but it will be interesting to get started on learning about the mics and how to mic up an instrument properly or what mic will be better for certain situations.”
