Post by esotericmetal » Wed Aug 30, 2017 9:32 am

The only ones i've seen have dual 1/4" ts connectors. I'm thinking I may just have to buy one of them and solder my own connectors on.

I need them to connect my qunexus cv outs to eurorack which uses two 3.5mm trs jacks to output 4 cv signals. Seems like the only off the shelf options are the cv connection kit from KMI, which i'm not interested in as it comes with cables i don't need/already have and is kinda overpriced in general.

Seen splitters on Ebay, not seen cables like that though.
I'm not buying a maths though, not my idea of fun...

I faced the same issue when I got a QuNexus. I looked everywhere for ones like the KMI kit has, without luck. I bought two of of the Hosa YMM-261 breakout cables referenced above ^^^ and then I just finish it off with regular Eurorack patch cables. That does the trick, and it isn't thirty $$$ bucks, and you can use any patch cables you have lying about.

I've had a few solutions over the years for my BSP to Pam's sync cable but none off the shelf.

I had a spare TRRS AV cable lying around from a media player or projector or something, using a scope or a meter I discovered which 2 of the 3 phono jacks gave me run and clock signals and just used phono to 3.5mm jack adapters for a bit.

I ended up with a TRS cable with no end on it so soldered a couple of 1/4" jack sockets to it and mounted it all in a little case that I used with 1/4" to 3.5mm adapters plugged in.

I more recently found a few spare 3.5mm jacks and cut out the faffing around and soldered them right to the cable instead of via the sockets. It's much tidier and easier to use.

When I needed one a few months ago, I went with the Hosa adapter mentioned above. Works fine.

thanks, you reminded me that i needed to order a pair of these! (for patching into the stereo input channels on panmix.)

the elektron audio/cv split cable kit works for this job if you have one, but it's like five times the cost.

More expensive than the Hosa splitter, but there's also these:

I use two of them with my Qunexus and they work really well.

I had the same stupid problem when using the din-sync out of the Arturia Beatstep Pro to clock Pamela's Workout and Metroplis.
I use something like this now with standard RCA-3.5mmTRS-cables:

I also use this to mult it before I split it:
