XLR or Jacks

Recommended Posts

What do you guys suggest for home studio work?

 

I use a Allen and Heath ZED R16 firewire desk into my DAW.Shall I go out from Helix to desk using XLR's or Jacks.(Someone told me the xlrs will give me more output)?

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks all.

It really doesn't matter over the short distances in a studio.

 

Have you considered using Helix as your audio interface? Fewer A/D and D/A conversions as well as direct support for recording dry signal and hardware re-amping.

I doubt you will hear the difference between using Helix direct and going into your current interface, but there might be some ease of use to it. I found that there was and got rid of my (now used) interface. If you use XLR into your interface, be sure that your interface's Phantom Power is turned OFF!

 

Just be sure to use a USB port that is NOT on a USB hub for this, unless (MAYBE) the hub is powered. Helix doesn't like USB hubs.
