Hi people, I am new to this forum, and also to the Mpc world.
My question: those who send your beats to any DAW through the mpc's 4 individual outs> do you use balanced or unbalanced ones? . Just before I spend the money on them...
Thanks in advance from Argentina!

they are unbalanced output, so you can use either cable, but you will get no benefit from balanced, and if you plug into a balanced input, you will actually lose sound.

so just use unbalanced, but technically both could work.

i'm telling you that your mpc outputs are unbalanced, so you will gain no benefits from using balanced cables.

balanced cables only have benefit if both the input and out are also balanced. even then, its mostly beneficial for long cable runs, not something in a home studio.
