SURROUND OVERHEAD SEND CABLE (stereo TRS)
CONSTRUCTING PATCH CORD C
If you want the overhead feature, and your mixer has only stereo AUX SEND outputs on tip-ring-sleeve stereo jacks
available to be used for the overhead AUX SEND, make the following cable:
- Cut a length of the mic cable suitable to reach the mixer from the digital delay.
- Connect a stereo plug to one end of the cable as follows:
- Make sure two resistors will fit inside the connector husk.
- Solder the cold lead and the shield to the SLEEVE (ground) terminal.
- Solder one end of each of two 600 ohm 1/8 watt resistors to the hot lead.
- Shrink heat shrinkable tubing over that connection.
- Cut the remaining leads of the resistors to about 3/16 in.
- Solder the remaining end of the left channel resistor to the TIP terminal.
- Solder the remaining end of the right channel resistor to the RING terminal.
- Label the plug you just put on OVERHEAD AUX SEND.
- Connect a plug that fits the output of your digital delay to the other end. Solder the hot lead to the hot
terminal, and solder the cold lead to the ground terminal. DO NOT connect the shield at this end.
- Label this plug DELAY IN
