Yamaha HS50M with Fast Track Pro Studio Monitors

Yamaha HS50M with Fast Track Pro

Hello

I'm thinking about purchasing a pair of Yamaha's HS50M monitors to use with Fast Track Pro.

However, the HS50M has only one XLR and one 1/4" inputs, on each monitor.

I would be using a pair of RCA-to-Phone adaptors.
The Right Channel out from Fast Track would go to the HS50M 1/4" input on my right.
The Left Channel out from Fast Track would go to the HS50M 1/4" input on my left.

Could you guys tell me if this would work, please ? And if there's a better way to connect those monitors to Fast Track Pro ?

Thank you.

I have a fast track pro. It has 1/4" TRS outputs located at the top right of the unit if you are looking at it's back.

Oh, that's right. Thanks.

So, in the case of the HS50M connection, i would connect the Fast Track TRS right channel output to one monitor, and the TRS left channel output to the other monitor.

Would that work ?

Sorry if this is too obvious to most people. I just wanna be sure it will work before i spend the money buying those monitors.

Thanks

Yes that is how I do it. The Output Knob controls how loud it is. The Mix knob controls how much Output your hear vs. input...like if you have a singer recording and they want to hear themselves better you would turn the knob towards input.
