The point where a signal is put into a given component or circuit. A microphone is connected to the input of a mixer. Outputs always go to inputs. One must be careful to make sure the output of one device can be handled by the input of another. There are different signal levels available, and even if the connector is the same, the signal level may not be. Proper adapters that change the physical connector and the electrical signal characteristics must be used.
