On the first diagram, it is a live sound setting.

It has 4 sound sources which are vocal,


guitar, keyboard and bass guitar. For vocals, I used a XLR cable because microphone
uses XLR outputs/inputs. The XLR cable is connected directly to the mixers XLR
output. The XLR will carries the analog signal that is balanced to the mixer so that no
interference or buzz sound would occur. The next sound source would be the guitar.
The guitar is first connected to the guitar amplifier by a TS cable that carries a mono,
analog and unbalanced signal. Because it has a unbalanced signal and to clear the
unwanted buzz sound, the guitar amp is pre-mic so that the buzz sound is cut off and
sent directly to the mixer by a microphone that is capturing the sound. The next sound
source is the keyboard. The keyboard is connected to the keyboard amplifier through
a TRS to 2 x TS ( Y cable). They keyboard has two mono signal which is L and R so
the TRS to 2x TS y cable would be able to send all the signal to the keyboard
Amplifier. The keyboard Amplifier is also pre-mic so that the unwanted buzz sound is
cut off too. For the 1/8 to 2 TS (y cable), is connected from the mixer to the
headphones. A 1/8 is a headphone jack and it sends digital signal to the headphones.
The TRS cable is connected from the mixer to the monitor speaker. The TRS cable
carries a digital and stereo signal to the Monitor speaker which produces stereo
sounds. The next wire which can be seen in the second scenario is a Fire wire which
is Studio recording Sessions. The fire wire is connecting the MIDI keyboard to the
computer. It sends digital signal to the computer as the computer can only receive
digital signal. The computer would be able to receive the performance data from the
MIDI keyboard. A pre-amp is connected to the interface by an Optical Cable. An
optical cable sends data by reflecting light so that much digital data or multiple tracks
could be send at the same time and at a faster rate. The interface has an adat port
which then converts all those light signal information into digital binary code so that
the computer could read all the information.
