Hi guys.

What is the best Way to connect my VoiceLive2 to my Mixer?

Using a Female XLR to Male JACK CABLE?


OR

Presumably the outputs from the Voicelive2 are line level, not mic level, so you don't want to connect them to the mic inputs on the mixer, but to the line inputs which are jack by the look of it.

If they are balanced outputs/inputs then use stereo jack to jack leads or XLR to stereo jack leads.

One more thing, if you find you want or need to wire unbalanced to balanced or vice versa, there are specific ways to configure the leads.

A simple guide is to wire the hot lead to the centre pin of the jack and connect shield and together and wiring them together to the other leg of the jack, although there are some alternative methods, I won't go into as it's confusing, USA is different to Europe.

Just use a standard guitar cable. There is no reason to worry about balanced at the short distances you are working with. While XLR would be a more reliable connector, the XLR inputs on that console will not handle the higher line level signal coming out of that pedal.

Some consoles can handle line levels on their XLR inputs. That yamaha series cannot.
