    Greetings —

    I need to connect two of my iDR-32 outputs into a single 1/4″ TRS for driving a stereo mix into personal monitor mixer.

    Can I wire it up like this?

    Output 4 – Pin 2 to 1/4″ tip
    Output 5 – Pin 2 to 1/4″ ring
    Output 5 – Pin 1 to 1/4″ sleeve (or should I take pin 3?)

    This isn’t so much a question about the proper way to wire up the adapter, as it is a question about potentially damaging my MixRack.

    Thank you!

    Tim ==

    Just make sure you tie pin’s 1 & 3 together on the xlr connector. You will not damage the mixrack.

    Why not get a couple of simple 1:0 to 1:0 transformers so the output driver of the mix rack see’s a nice simple load, then you could use the outputs of the transformers to feed the TRS input of your monitor device. Keeps it isolated also which is a bonus less chance of hums and buzzes also.

    You should be able to buy off-the-rack cables to do exactly this…

    Yup, or I could fashion one out of the spare Neutrik and Switchcraft parts in my cellar – I’ve got some experience making entertainment cables of all kinds [:)]

    John, just so I understand, tie ground to low on both XLRs?

    @tim- yes just tie pins 1 & 3 together to make an unbalanced connection.
