How to record Audio of Yamaha EZ-220

I am Trying to record the audio from my yamaha ez-220
into a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 which will then go into my DAW.
I bought a balanced 1/4 in'' TRS to XLR
when i try to record, the sounds lose their life they have when i listen normally threw my 1/4in'' headphone jack

Please tell me what i am missing??

I noticed if i pull the 1/4in'' cord out slighty then it gets a better sound but then contains alot of background noise(hiss).
I know i can record with a usb cable but i wana use all the sounds included on my keyboard.

Thank you ahead of time.

The output on the 220 appears to a stereo output, not a balanced output. Run a 1/4 inch stereo cable from the 220 to a stereo to dual 1/4 inch mono adapter, then to each of the interfaces inputs set to line level. This should solve the problem.

Also, in your DAW, pan the inputs hard right and left.
