    Hey all,

    This might sound somewhat stupid but I was wondering if it's necessary or an overkill to have the interface's balanced outs through to a DI box before the house's mixer? I'm patching multi-outs stems from Ableton, TRS to XLR cables out from the interface.

    Thanks!

    I don't think it's necessary but better to be safe then sorry, depends on the interface and FOH gear really

    If you are using balanced out, than you can simply go straight to PA with balanced (TRS) to XLR cable. If PA accepts straight TRS balanced than you can use simple stereo cable, but TRS to XLR proves to be useful in other situations.

    Thanks for the swift response fellas, I'm using a Saffire Pro 24 VRM. It's a fairly decent interface so I'm hoping it won't freak out hum on me. Also, the thought of having 10 DI boxes for my multi-tracks seems a little too much.

    Thanks again!
