You could actually just 'guess' based on percentages/chance ;) Line level is very, very rarely run over balanced line, so the safe bet is that it's not balanced. For consumer-level equipment I'd reckon the percentage is going to be so close to 100 that you needn't worry. In this particular instance, I can add to this 'percentage/skill & judgement' call ...

Both outputs are unbalanced. What the manual means is that if you insert a plug into only the L/L+R output, the result is a mono mix of the left and right channels ("L+R"). If you insert a plug into the R output, the unit disconnects the mix of of the right channel to the L/L+R output, and the two outputs are now "L" and "R"—...

Your headphones should be safe plugged into the monitor sockets but you're unlikely to hear much. The monitor sockets are intended to feed an amplifier or amplified speakers with a medium input impedance. Α 10 kΩ load is suggested. It's not particularly critical but 32 Ω is too low. You'll need to add a headphone amplifier between the monitor outputs and ...

From their website (bold is mine): MAYA44 eX provides 2 stereo analog line inputs, 2 stereo line outputs, a microphone input with +48V phantom power and preamp, a Hi-Z guitar instrument input, a headphone output, as well as an optical S/PDIF output and an optical S/PDIF input. So yes, you can plug straight into that interface. Personally speaking, I always ...

Yes, balanced outputs are scarce in digital pianos. They are typically available on advanced stage pianos (Kawai MP11SE, Roland RD2000…), but not with the Clavinova series.

Buffer under-run or clock sync issues. There, that was easy to say… much harder to diagnose ;) To over-simplify, both of those are reasons that the audio has to run to catch up all the time, meaning it occasionally skips a bit. Whenever that generates a rapid zero crossing in the audio waveform (in effect, a big sudden step rather than a sine wave), it will ...

Guesses… XLR 1 has one broken wire, hot or cold, can't tell. This would in effect halve the power. XLR 2 has a short between hot/cold & ground. This might potentially be giving the DAC 48v where it wasn't expecting it, possibly frying something. For next time… Take the barrels off & visually inspect the connections. Use a continuity tester/...

You have 4 questions there - and we really want only one question in a post, however they are all very related so: Especially when playing high-gain metal, electric guitar is noisy - you pick up mains hum, possibly physical and contact noise from the cable and body of the guitar etc. Your amp sim setup seems quieter than the setups I use until I enable a ...

It is probably possible to do in the mixer in the Tascam. Check the manual. If nothing seems to work I would do like this. Mix inside the Tascam and output to two out channels. Connect with patch cable to input 1 and 2 (or whatever channels shows up in the other programs). You loss two input and 2 output channels that way, but better than nothing.

You didn't mention what program you use to record, but if it's not OBS I recommend you try that out. I have an arctis pro with the gamedac for chatmix and I can input the game and chat audios into separate 'desktop audio' channels, and it will record them both at the same time. Only caveat is the chatmix knob wont affect the recording what so ever, so it'll ...

It seems to me you have a long way to go. I will try to fill in some of that. Some it you will already know but bear with me. Sound is: change in air pressure, positiv and negative change over time The way to work with this in a "computer" is by sampling the value often enough. In music recording we might select to sample 48000 times per second. ...
