Star Quad cables for a Location Bag/CartSo I am doing some reading on cables and star-quad cables have come up. I am wondering if anyone has switched from balanced XLR to Star-quad inside of a Location bag/cart setup and found any noticeable/measurable difference? Currently I am using an SD 633 with Lectro 411a's and when necessary, G4s of the 100 series.
XLR SolderingHello again everyone, I'm brand new to soldering XLR cables, but I have some extra laying around and I want to practice. I opened up a star quad cable and noticed 2 cables for each connection on the xlr plug. I'm trying out soldering a 3 pin female to 5 pin male (for a camera top mic to play the same mono in both stereo tracks). Would i be able to just split these cables up and solder each of the 5 wires (including shield) to the 5 connections on the 5 pin male end? would this effectively send the mono track and split it to both channels on a camera? or will I have to create a connection wire instead? Thanks for the advice!
