SURROUND OVERHEAD SEND CABLE (stereo)
CONSTRUCTING PATCH CORD C
If you want the overhead feature, and your mixer has only stereo AUX SEND outputs on separate jacks available to be
used for the overhead AUX SEND, then do the following:
- If the digital delay has two inputs that are mixed together, then STOP. Just run two cables from the AUX SEND jacks
to the delay inputs instead of making this cable. Otherwise:
- Cut two lengths of the mic cable suitable to reach the mixer from the digital delay.
- Connect a mono plug to one end of each cable as follows:
- Make sure one resistor will fit inside the connector husk.
- Solder both the cold wire and the shield to the ground terminal.
- Solder one end of a 600 ohm 1/8 watt resistor to the hot lead.
- Shrink heat shrinkable tubing over that connection.
- Solder the remaining end of the resistor to the hot terminal.
- Label each plug you just put on OVERHEAD AUX SEND.
- Connect a single plug that fits the input of your digital delay to the other ends of both cables. Solder the
hot wires from both cables to the hot terminal, and solder the cold wires from both cables to the ground terminal.
Do not connect the shields at this end, but trim them off so they are not exposed and insulate them.
- Label this plug DELAY IN
