I'm curious about audio mixer inputs and outputs and have some questions.
- Most mixers have 2 1/4" line inputs per track, one for the left channel and one for the right. If I connect a mono device to only the left jack, would sound be output to both speakers?
- Would I need a preamp if my mixer already has an XLR port?
- How would the mixer know if the input is balanced or not? (E.g. balanced TRS or regular 1/4" plug)
- I've heard that professional line level inputs/outputs have a different current than home use line level controls. Does it mean that I can't connect (with good quality) a computer to my mixer or my mixer to my home amp (using 1/4" to RCA adapters)
