Member of the Trade: Cables For Less
- Jun 1, 2016
Another question, if I wanted to use this cable:
for a 3 pin mini xlr would I only use three of the wires out of this particular cable? I want to keep my first few cables with cheapish materials until I'm a little more comfortable with making them so I don't want any fancy silver cables etc. Any other recommendations or tips are welcome
I would do what is done when you go from a 3.5 mm stereo plug to dual inputs on headphones. They are using four wires but attaching both grounds to the common ground. In your case if you go from a TRS connector (stereo) to a three pin XLR, take two wires to ground on each end and use two for the + on the left and right channel. Get some experience soldering and then move on to more complex cabling schemes.
