For CV? A floating ring cable.

Sounds like you're just asking for 3.5mm (1/8") to 6.35mm (1/4") cables?

You'll want TS to TS cables in most cases.

CONTROL sells them if you're in the US, as do many other shops.

Or you can buy the same thing from HOSA just about anywhere.

You should have got a floating ring cable included. Was the SBG second-hand by any chance?

Just commenting again to add: two people have now recommended "floating ring cables", which after googling I realize is what I think of as TS to TRS cables.

If these are required, and they very well may be, I did not know it. You may want to hold off buying TS to TS cables as I may have told you to get the wrong thing.

You might be needing one like this instead: https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/floating-ring-cable-14m/

Hope this helps. :party:

Mine was more a quote from the manual than a recommendation. :mrgreen:

TS to TS is right for audio so your answer is fine for that. I was just assuming the OP was asking about the cable for CV into the expression input, and that does require a floating ring cable. cptnal is right, though: the module comes with a floating ring cable but maybe he got it used or was asking about audio cables.

I believe the including floating ring cable is for integrating an expression pedal into the SBG's lower module (expression pedal to CV). For connecting a pedal like the H9, the cables should be 1/4" TS to 3.5mm TS, one for send and one for receive.

Yeah, the included floating ring cable is for CV. You have to fend for yourself for audio cables, but those are plain 3.5mm to 1/4"
