DIY 1/4" to 1/8" jack interface

Author DIY 1/4" to 1/8" jack interface
How difficult would it be to DIY something like the Dotcom Q122 Mini Jack Interface? Would the process be similar to doing multiples, i.e simply wiring the jacks together? Thanks for any illumination you can provide, o wise wigglers!
Yes, these work just the same as multiples, just wire the tips and grounds of the two jacks together.
It actually easier and cheaper to just buy 1/4" and 3.5mm (aka 1/8") plugs plus some good wire and make a bunch of adapter cables.

And more importantly, that saves valuable cabinet space.
Adapter cables are a good choice, but it can be a pain to have to sort patch cables.

There are also plug adapters you can get that turn a 1/8" plug into a 1/4" plug, and vice versa.

My advice would be: get some 1/8" patch cables, and use adapters to plug them into 1/4" jacks. If you try to run 1/4" jacks into adapters, the weight of the plug (and often the cable) will over strain the 1/8" jack.

I prefer 1/4" plugs and jacks on everything, myself, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
