    Default Transmitter connection to laptop

    I am thinking about using a signstek .5w transmitter for my music. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Here is my question. Could I use a 3.5mm to usb adapter straight from my pc? That seems like an easy and logical way. This is the first time I have decided to try to put my lights to music. I'm using 96 channels of Renard with Vixen 3.TIA

    I use a 3.5mm cable connected from the headphone port on the laptop to the Signstek input port.

    I had not thought of that Kevin. I assume it works well if your doing it?

    I run mine from my laptops 3.5 jack to the transmitters 3.5 input jack, the same way Kevin said, works great for me.

    Yes, it works well. I started using a Rasberry Pi last year and it connects/works the same as the laptop.
