Audio jack to Banana adapter

Post by Tajnost » Wed Oct 21, 2020 1:17 pm

Finally got a very ancient red drum box here in front of me (thnx Trond!!!) with a 1/4 jack audio output. I'd like to have an option to send audio back into modular as well for processing, filtering etc... I'm sure I'd be happy just with a basic adaptor, no need to mod the module.

So wondering is it ok just to solder a 1/4 jack to banana (what should I do with ground wire then )? Will audio match levels of BB system?

Could make a jack-banana cable (or ask Tom nicely next order)? If you have it housed in your BB modular no grounding necessary

Ok, yes I've got it housed inside the system.
I've got a few cables like that with minijacks (also self-build ). Can try it with minijack to 1/4 adapter now.

^^ that'll work fine.
At full amplitude it'll be suitable for the modular realm.

Yeah, works flawlessly. Just need to push the drive a bit harder.
Actually I didn't expect such a nice overdrive from DRM1! Lovely tone!
Should I expect the same from COFilter and PTDelay and their input gains or it's another story... ?
