I'm having trouble connecting my wireless microphone (lavalier set) to an audio mixer. My wireless microphone is Saramonic Blink 500, which has TRS output on its receiver, and my audio mixer is Behringer Q502USB which has 1/4 inch jack input. So far I'm only using a simple TRS to 1/4 Inch to connect my TRS cable to mixer. I'm a beginner in audio engineering so I'm quite confused how to connect these things...
Anyway, I've tried to connect my saramonic directly to my laptop 3.5mm and it works with "Line In" type input.. Thanks for any help !!
The Behringer has a TRS input on channel 1 (Balanced input). The wiring is in the manual, but is as follows;
The same input on channel 1 can also be a mono input (unbalanced)
Your Blink 500 does NOT have balanced output on the receiver; it has a 3.5mm stereo output. The best solution is to find a 3.5mm 1/8" TRS to Dual 6.35mm 1/4" TS Mono Stereo Y-Cable Splitter cable, and then use channels 2/3 on the mixer for input. This will give you stereo on the mixer - any solution that uses just one cable will lose you either the left or right channel.
You seem to be mixing terms a bit here - TRS means Tip, Ring, Sleeve, which is a connector for two signals + ground. These are often used as stereo connectos, but have other uses too. I presume that you have differently-sized mono (TR) connectors - minijack and full-sized (1/4 inch).
In any case, an adapter should be fine for this purpose. Maybe the settings on the mixer are wrong?
