I record at my home using just my computer and a very simple panasonic audio/video mixer. It has one mic plug in which is a normal one inch single connector. The cable that was sent with my SM57 is three pinned. Is there a transfer I can use to make it into a one inch prong, or do I need a new cable. Which kind of transfer or cable do I need?The 3 pin connector on the SM57 is called an XLR connector. Depending on the sensitivity of the Panasonic mixer, one of the following 2 solutions should work:
(1) An XLR to 1/4" cable. Model #C15AHZ (15 foot) or #C20AHZ (20 foot).
(2) A transformer such as the model #A85F. This transformer has an XLR connector on one end and a 1/4" connector on the other end. You would use the cable that was sent with your SM57 to complete the connection.
