    is it necessary to have a balanced cable for this?
    we did some recording the other day and just used a genereic XLR-1/4" laying around. It sounded pretty good, but didn't know
    if i was missing out on some benefit of having the balanced cable.

    If it was a short run (about 15') and still quiet then you didn't miss a thing.

    Anything longer than that and you might start having to deal with some high end rolloff. Not necessarily a bad thing depending on your tone.

    :D
