I have a microphone signal coming out of a male 1/8" (3.5mm) which I want to send into a female XLR low impedance input.
I have a microphone's output signal, 3.5mm male TS plug (from a Wireless microphone receiver). I wish to send this signal into a female XLR (low impedance) input (of a TC Helicon Harmonizer stomp box).
The Harmonizer's signal goes via XLR cable to a PA with no trouble.
The trouble is somewhere (from mic into harmonizer) between the 1/8" to XLR connection/conversion.
When I connect up, I get noise. Higher pitched than a 60 cycle hum, but lower pitch than what I would call a "whistle". Not regular static, though.
I have tried several different adapters, but cannot tell what sort of adapter or conversion I need to take a signal from a 1/8" TS male plug to XLR female input of the Harmonizer. The adapter format would be 1/8" female to male XLR. Do I need to convert the TS to TRS before the 1/8" on the adapter? Do I need impedance conversion? How can I tell?
