The wiring diagram for the cable pictured works for a single channel balanced or unbalanced. That is the correct cable wiring for Epic and Scarlet. An unbalanced connection would use the tip/sleeve connections but omit the ring on the TRS. Pins 1 ground and 2 hot on the XLR. Balanced input uses all three.
I tried these same cables at the office with a Sound Devices 442 and also with a Lectrosonics lavalier plugged directly into the Hosa adapter. I was able to get a decent signal, but experienced really loud handling noise if i even touched the Hosa adapter cable. It seemed like it would be unusable audio due to the possibility of that handling noise anytime the cable shakes just a little.
Has anyone had similar experience? It was only a $10 adapter, I thought maybe it didn't have proper sheilding.
Also, could not get a good headphone level - seemed very weak. In the quiet office, the headphone level was just loud enough for me to hear the sound, but not really strong enough to monitor or mix.
Did you go into the menus to raise the headphone output? Have not had any headphone problems.
Your headphone output is the menu item that says Audio Output. That controls the volume that comes out of the headphone port.
Oh, and FYI…
I picked up a pair of Guitar Center-branded ("Live Wire") XLR-Female to 3.5mm Mono cables, and they seem to work perfectly to take the signal from my MixPre-D to the Epic.
