SURROUND OVERHEAD CABLE (stereo)
CONSTRUCTING PATCH CORD B
If you want the overhead feature, and your STEREO AUX RETURN used for the OVERHEAD RETURN
has two jacks, make the following cable:
- If the digital delay has two outputs, buy two standard patch cords to connect them to the OVERHEAD RETURNs.
- If the mixer normals the right jack to the left one when no plug is inserted in the right one, use a single
mono patch cord of the appropriate type.
- If you can buy a Y cable that splits a mono output to two inputs, buy that. Otherwise:
- Cut two lengths of mic cable suitable to reach between the mixer and the digital delay.
- Connect a standard plug that fits the OVERHEAD RETURN jacks to one end of each cable. Connect the hot lead to
the tip, and the cold lead to the ring. DO NOT connect the shield at this end.
- Label the plugs you just put on OVERHEAD RETURN.
- Connect a single plug that fits the output of your digital delay to the other end of both cables. Wire both hot
wires from the cable to the hot terminal, and the cold wires and shields to the ground terminal.
- Label this plug DELAY OUT
