September 27th, 2023

Last month we had some questions on the Mono-to-stereo patch cable. So here is a detailed step-by-step guide on how to make your own. Hopfully this helps!

  1. Gather the following materials:
  2. Cut the patch cable in half.
  3. Cut one end off of the Stereo Cable.
  4. Strip the wires.
  5. Solder the white wires of the mono cables together with the bare copper wire of the stereo cable.
  6. Connect and solder the remaining 2 red and white wires. Red-->Red and White-->Red.
  7. Wrap the connection with electrical tape or heat the shrink.
  8. Test it out and make some noise!
