I'm very new to this page and anything electrical in general. I considered putting this on the music SE page but I thought this site may prove more helpful.
I have a small personal "studio" (put very lightly) for recording my own music as a personal hobby. I have a mic hooked up through to a vocoder synth through 2 XLR cables, as my mic uses a phantom power supply. The total distance from the mic to the synth is about 6 feet, but the smallest XLR cables I have are 25 feet and 10 feet, respectively.
My question(s) are thus:
If I coil up the excess slack in my XLR cable, will I experience unwanted interference (either from the loops or the unneccesary length of the cable)? Does this apply to any audio-carrying cable?
Would buying 2 shorter XLR cables give me a cleaner signal than keeping my current ones?
