I know this is INCREDIBLY general and vague, but I am getting so confused with all the different options. I keep reading different forums and posts and everyone seems to have a different response based on a million different variables. Personally, I hardly know the difference between most of these things. I run my Kemper XLR out to my focusright. What volume should I have my Kemper at? I feels like it clips my focusright really easily, but if I lower my Kemper, then it seems like some other thing is affected.
Should I be doing 1/4 inch? What about TRS? I thought TRS was the weird cable used in lieu of a midi cable? What about S/PDIF? What even is that? Then people are saying "do X, unless is unbalanced" or "do Y, unless X is balanced."
I just want to plug and play, but I also want to make sure I am getting the best tone I possibly can. Im just confused rn.. Can anyone help? Or point me in the direction of a video/blog/forum/whatever that can help?
