USB allows up to 127 devices (in theory) to be connected in series, and exists in two variants: USB1 (12Mbps) and USB (480Mbps). USB ports are backwards-compatible, but connecting a USB1 device will limit all devices on that port to the slower speed.

may well turn out to be the better choice as it is interference immune, and does not suffer from potentially disastrous ground loops. AES/EBU is usually only found on high-end products as it is much more expensive to implement. It does however offer better signal integrity due to the higher voltage levels used, and by virtue of its
BalancedTerm used to describe a system of audio connection that employs phase inversion noise cancellation. Using two signal wires and an earth, the audio is split and phase inverted in the second signal wire. On reaching the destination the second signal is re-inverted and combined with the first. Any electromagnetic interference is picked up equally by each signal cable and so will be cancelled out by the phase inversion. A balanced line requires balanced equipment at both ends.

In days gone by, if you wanted to play a sound from a given synthesiser, you had to physically play that specific synth’s keyboard - this resulted in performers being surrounded by huge arrays of keyboards.

Control Leads

RJ 45

These days many electronic musical devices use network cables and others inherited from the telecoms industry for control purposes. For example, the popular Line 6 Pod uses an RJ-45 (modem connector) and CAT-5 cable to allow it to communicate with a foot controller.

Bear in mind however, that just because a network cable is employed, it doesn’t mean that the connected products have IP addresses (some do) and can automatically talk to each other - it may just be a convenient cabling strategy.
