    Sorry to ask such an obvious question, but even at my advanced age this is all new to me. I need to get a patch cable to hook up my new Mustang Floor to my mixer for live gigs. The mixer has both XLR and 1/4" "ins" input channels. The Mustang has L and R XLR out and L and R 1/4" unbalanced outputs. I know the XLR outputs are more for recording due to their low noise. Am I better off using both 1/4" outputs on the Mustang to the mixer or just the left one? Do I want to go into an XLR line input channel on the mixer or the 1/4" "ins" input. I'm trying to figure out what kind of patch cable I need to get. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks...

    Either one will work, but given the choice I would go the XLR route (balanced cables, more secure connections). If the PA is mono, you won't get any benefit from running both outputs, just use a summed mono output from the Mustang (if it can do that, which it should).
