So about a month back i asked a question on here about an audio mixer. I got it built and running a while back but have recently brought some extra 3.5mm jacks for my analog mixing board, this one takes in an input from my microphone which has an amplified analog output.
Ive noticed that because of the cable length required the cable is acting as an antenna and causing background noise. I have seen adapterd which allow 3.5mm jack to toslink cable.
So i was wondering if it was possible to use a 3.5mm jack to toslink adapter to send the analog signal down the toslink cable?
I dont want to convert it to digital, i was hoping to use the toslink cable to prevent the static being picked up by the length of cable.
So using it this way
Mic - 3.5mm to toslink adapter - toslink cable - 3.5mm to toslink adapter - audio mixer
I am unsure if this will work, as i am unsure if the adapters would convert the analog signal to the correct light flashes and then read them right the other end.
Sorry this isnt technical as it should be. So my question is, has anyone used these adapters? They are passive and cheap so their not converters
And if anyone has used them or understands them better then me, would this work?
