can i hook up my compressor to my mixer through the insert? and if so...when i got my insert cable, one said TIP and one said RING...does it matter which one goes to the IN or OUT?

Feb 28, 2005 08:59 pm yeah make sure you're using an insert 'patch' cable, where one end is a TRS and the other end is two mono TS cables....tip, i think goes to the input of the compressor and sleve goes to the output...not positively sure though, you'll be able to tell real quick, either you have sound or you don't.
Feb 28, 2005 10:48 pm ha...yah i ordered the insert patch cables with my compressor...and i have sound...so i guess i guessed right...

Ring = Return
Mar 01, 2005 03:09 am I always had trouble with this too, then I came up with this..
Red = right = ring = return
Mar 01, 2005 11:11 am HA!!! i can remember that!
Mar 01, 2005 12:05 pm on the back of my Behringer MDX1400 compressor...it just has an IN and an OUT on the back...no send...no return...and neither of my cables are RED...one is GREY and one is ORANGE...haha...so...i dont know..

In = Return... and if you're using a Hosa with the grey, and orange buisness, it should say right on it which is tip, and sleeve .
Mar 01, 2005 01:55 pm wow... I just always unplugged things and repatched em until i got it to work, didn't even think tere might be a proper way to do it.
