using TRS cables to patch, instead of TS

Postby ummagumma » Fri Jul 26, 2019 7:31 pm

I have a bunch of TRS cables here, that would be perfect for the Voyager XL/CP 351 etc

will they work, in place of a TS patch cable? and is it safe?

thx

Yes, but not vice versa.

thanks!

I don't use balanced connectors for anything ( yet ) and ended up with a bunch of short TRS cables

glad I can put them to use

TRS 1/4" cables are particularly useful with Moogerfoogers and the CP-251
as they won't short out the +5v DC that goes to Expression pedals.

It won't hurt them to use TS cables but, since the +5v DC has been (safely) shorted to ground, you can't use TRS Expression pedals in any of the other jacks until you break that short.
