Line or Amp/instrument in globals?


Recommended Posts

Basically, I'd go line level XLR if you don't have any reason not to.


Line vs Instrument is just higher signal level. Looks like the PE can handle either, just adjust its input level so it doesn't clip. Line would provide somewhat better environmental noise rejection since the signal is hotter in comparison.


Re XLR vs 1/4", XLRs are balanced, so any hum from AC lines etc theoretically gets rejected. Balanced also lets you lift the ground, to avoid ground loops.
