  • Triple Source ideas?

    What's a reasonable way to get three sources to a stereo jack. I've got a customer wanting a passive magnetic(sunrise, M1, etc.?), a condensor mic, and an undersaddle pickup. He could mix two signals outboard with a TRS cable, but not three. Any ideas?

    Hey Bryan,
    That's really not an easy task, but it should be doable.

    I think the only way you could do it would be to use a mixing system (Anthem, iMix, Dual Source, etc.) on a 4-conductor jack (TRSS). The mixing system would take up the tip, switch and sleeve contacts, leaving you with a ring and common-ground to solder the 3rd source to (probably the magnetic).

    The you would just take a stereo cable out of the guitar to be mixed externally. It could be complicated, but not impossible.

      Thanks Caleb.

      I'll research that a little more. I know that it will be complicated, but I just need to find the right base system to work from. Then find a way to add on the magnetic without it interfering. Should be fun!

      As a side note, the new image verification is really, really difficult. I just missed it three times to post this reply. I'm sure it helps with spam though.

        Well after watching this video....he's sold on running two outputs and doing this Anthem SL/M80 combo. Pretty awesome.
