Connecting TRS output of synth to TS input of guitar pedal? Desktop Synthesizers

Connecting TRS output of synth to TS input of guitar pedal?

Hi everyone,

I have a few guitar pedals and was looking to get myself a synth to feed into them. I have my eyes on a DeepMind 6 but looking at the specs I'm not sure if it's possible.

The rear panel and manual indicates balanced TRS outputs but no mono option if using only one output (as on the Novation Peak for example). Would inserting an unbalanced TS cable into one of the TRS outputs of the synth and then connecting the TS cable to a guitar pedal be sufficient? Or would this result in interference or worse?

Sorry if there's already a similar topic. I've searched loads but haven't been able to find anything specific to this issue.

Thanks!

Using a TS cable should work basically fine. You may have trouble with overloading the pedal's input if you turn the synth's volume up too high; the obvious solution is "don't do that."

That's great to hear, thank you.

Just to follow up, so is it potential distortion that's the main issue rather than an increase in noise?
