Quote of the Day

“With any acoustic instrument that you record, you have some kind of ambience happening. Any electric instrument, when it’s direct, doesn’t have any ambience at all. So for me the challenge is not to try to simulate the acoustic sound, but to simulate some of the aspects of an acoustic sound.”- bassist Michael Manring

1/4” connector

A connector that transmits signal through its tip and provides ground/shield through its sleeve. A guitar cable uses this type of connector. Comes as unbalanced tip-ring (TS) or balanced tip-ring-sleeve (TRS) configuration. The TRS has multiple uses—it can transmit stereo signal (T = left, R = right, S = shield/ground), balanced signal (+ and– tied to the T and R, with S as the shield), or it can be used as an insert cable (T = send, R = return, S = ground/shield). The 1/4” connector is sometimes called Phone connector or Phone plug (not to be confused with Phono/RCA).
