TRS cable for Kemper. How do you call it in Norwegian?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Sorry for writing in English but I just moved here and still have to learn the language.

I own a Kemper and so far I've used a guitar cable from the output into my scarlett USB interface. Now someone on the Kemper forum told me it's the wrong cable. What I need is a TRS cable. I guess I'd want a cable with two jacks for the left and right output of the Kemper and on the other side one jack to go into the interface.

I'd like to order this in Norway but if I type in TRS cable I get completely different cables. Can anyone help me? And where should I order it?

Tusen takk!!

Hei!

I have the focusrite scarlett solo.

So far I used a guitar cable from the Kemper master output into the instrument input on the scarlett. That way I unfortunately only got mono, but that's ok. Now someone replied on a different forum: "you should be using a TRS cable to connect to your interface. The instrument setting is if you are plugging the guitar directly into the interface. So the correct way is... a 1/4" TRS (NOT a common TS guitar) OR a XLR cable, "instrument" setting off if you are using the 1/4" input."

So apparently I wasn't supposed to use a guitar cable. But when I look up TRS cables here in Norway I don't really get a result. I assume she or he means something like this here: Photo

I use a Kemper with USB interface. And I use a normal guitar cable. I can’t see anything wrong with that. I use the monitor output or one of the main output (left or right) from the Kemper if a remember it correctly.

Maybe this is what you’re looking for? I don’t think that will give you a stereo signal though.

Welcome to the forum! I think the Scarlett Solo instrument input is mono only, so you won't get stereo either way. You'll need a soundcard with two inputs for that. I don't know the Kemper, but I would think most sounds are mono with probable exceptions for some of the effects on top maybe? If however, there are stereo profiles on the Kemper, I'm sure you can set the output section to mono.

Another thing: Are you experiencing troubles with your sound by using just one output? Is the sound much different to using headphones out of the headphones output for example?

if, however, his point was that you need some sort of balanced cable, you could try the xlr-xlr option. but unless you have the kemper placed a long way from where you are, and need a very long cable, that shouldnt really make a difference.

there is also a slim chance there is an impedance issue. you could check to see if a monitor cable would be better between the kemper and the soundcard.

The point of me asking about the cable in the first place was to get the best sound out of my Kemper for recordings. While many stated they used guitar cables, I was also told that this was completely wrong. Now I'm a little worried about not getting the best out of my recordings. 

I also don't quite understand if I should press instrument "on" or "off" on my scarlett solo if I use a guitar cable. 

Stereo would be nice but isn't really necessary at this point.

The XLR-XLR option doesn't really work because it seems that the XLR on the scarlett is microphone only. Sounds horrible connected to the Kemper.

This is from the manual of my Scarlett Solo: 

"Set the INST switch ON (‘INST’ illuminates red) if you are connecting a musical instrument, e.g., a guitar in the example, using an ordinary 2-pole (TS) guitar jack.

Set the INST switch to OFF if you are connecting a line level source such as a keyboard, synthesiser or the balanced output of an external audio mixer via a 3-pole (TRS) jack. Note the jack socket accepts both TRS and TS types of jack plug."

Any idea what would be best for the Kemper then?

Takk!

If it's connected via the ordinary jack plug (like guitar plug) it should be set to ON.

If you're using the XLR type cable/TRS connector it should be set to OFF.

It's the type of connector used that determines what the switch should be set to, not what kind of equipment is connected.

I disagree. The line level determines.

@Kaschko As you quote from the scarlett manual, it supports TRS. TRS (tip ring sleeve) is a thing in Norway as well, I suggest you pick one up (TRS/TRS 6,3mm jack) at your local music/electronics store and set the inst switch to off on your scarlett.

    • Jeg liker ferske strenger og bytter gjerne når jeg må, til Ernie Ball eller DA som er reimeligere.  Spiller ikke live eller i band lenger, men vet om et par som spiller mye mer enn meg og verdsetter den ekstra kosten med Elixir for å slippe å bytte så ofte. Går litt på bekostning av lyd, da Elixir har "mindre klang" i seg men til gjengjeld varer lenger.
    • Takk. Mener å huske at Elixir ble regnet som å være best blant mange.. Men hvordan er synes å dette nå? Og dersom man f.eks spiller en del live og bytter strenger ofte så har det vel mindre å si eller?
    • Det er ikke lenge siden en 25 - bulk kostet 12-1300,- hos Evenstad. Den svake krona og prisstigning generelt, har sannelig gjort seg gjeldende.
    • Hei søker vokalist til Calzada, vi hører til i Stavanger.  spiller rock for det meste 
    • Det må du forvente, men prisene har vært betydelig lave når de har tilbud, selv med moms og frakt etc. Men det må du undersøke og ta en totalvurdering på. Spesielt nå som dollarkursen er dårlig, mot NOK. Skal du handle i Norge, må du bare følge med på hva de har av tilbud på de forskjellige nettbutikker/butikker og handle deretter. Det hender det er tilbud på f.eks spesifikke merker, eller "bundle packs".  Vi hadde Strenger.no før som leverte gode priser, men de ble lagt ned.  Her er f.eks 65-69kr per pakke, det mener jeg er helt innenfor. Du finner sikkert flere lignende tilbud til tider. https://evenstadmusikk.no/d-addario/1084076/d-addario-exl110-b25-bulkpakke-25-stk-010-046-pakke-med-25-stk-exl-110?gad_source=1&utm_source=daisycon&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=daisycon_Onlinepriser.no https://www.musikkhuset.no/products/daddario-exl110-b25-010-046-bulk-25-set?gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwpNuyBhCuARIsANJqL9Oid7wNzTU4xgLnLVllxOStnwHxS9wGBKVbHsHRQ3-f9rLxRdLZxtoaAmciEALw_wcB   Ellers kan jeg anbefale Ernie Ball strenger. De er ofte rimeligere hvis du benytter standard-størrelser - men har like god kvalitet som andre "gode strenger".  https://evenstadmusikk.no/ernie-ball/1009722/ernie-ball-eb-2221-regular-slinky-010-046?gad_source=1&gclid=Cj0KCQjwpNuyBhCuARIsANJqL9OfpfJAOtjW1PJjdIAvs6CT9CT-A9EJJeulO5OVlYeEllFcn3AGszgaAjfmEALw_wcB
