I don't know if they are still in business in the States (I'm posting from Scotland here) but when they were still on the go over here, Tandy did a very nice right angle 3.5mm minijack adaptor...
I'd always shyed away from that kind of thing but it proved invaluable for getting mics into the side of my TCD-D3 when it was in my carrying bag.
Neutrik do a very nice rewireable minjack- I've got some in gold here in the workshop- in fact I've got everything here for that.

I could make you the lead you're after and ship it for postage only if you like?

Would I need XLR male or XLR female ends on my patch cables

I did a lil research and I think I need FEMALE ends on my patch cables, right? Just wanted to be 100% sure

Thanks,
Bean

On the side you plug into the board it's a male output, so yes a female plug on the end of the cables.

This thread has prompted me to upload a photo to my blog page with part numbers of the connectors used to make the sound board cables I have been using for years:

Chuck...sweet adapter...

But, the female RCA patch out on your adapter is an interesting choice...I carry a Male RCA<>Male XLR and think I've used it on a soundboard once...now that once I had to ask for a mono mix because it was so thick I couldn't plug in the other one.

I guess I thought XLR or 1/4 would be much more common

Yeah, I do carry (2) 1/4" female to RCA male adapters for that RCA female output too. My experience has been that most guys are prepared for 1/4" out from the sound board. In all the years I've used them I can only remember two times when someone wanted to patch into the board after me...

I have an entire bag of cables and gender benders that I've never used, I was so excited when I got the opportunity to record live on a regular basis I just went on a shopping spree so I would not show up unprepared haha. come to find out they have EVERY output maxed out and most of them already running splitters.
I just recently found out this venue I typically record at does have ONE available 1/4 mono aux out on the SB, so even though the SB tech has no knowledge of attaching recorders to it he has been more than helpful to try to get me a good feed from it recently, however it is usually hit and miss. one band I may get all vocals/snare guitar. next band may have a perfect mix, next band may be all bass drum and bass guitar.

So it always pays off to be prepared, I have too many cables but I am glad I do, I recently trimmed down the luggage to just one 1/4 mono to 3.5mm stereo, 1/4 mono splitter, 3.5mm splitter xlr f and m plus xlr splitters and an xlr with a built in attenuator to 1/4 and that seems to cover every plug type in the club and on my recorders.

I love doing this and I read this forum continuously to learn more, I am eager to master this, it is truly a great hobby and loads of fun!

I recently got some used 15' GakCables from my good friend Dustin[aka caymanreview! Thanks again buddy ;D] for the RARE times that I get a SBD patch, or if I needed my +60v PFA setup extended even longer than it already is! Well, I also wanted to be prepared for ANY SBD output possible[XLR/RCA/1/4"], so I just ordered these two pairs of adapters so that I can easily go from the XLR ends, to the 1/4" jacks, or the RCA jacks depending on which board it is, just by switching out adapters at the SBD end! Should make patching the SBD nice and easy and I should now be covered for pretty much ANY SBD patching situation I might encounter, whether it be a tiny cheaper one, or a bigass Midas Pro ;D

I just thought that I'd share these so that anyone needing to do the same will know the cheapest route to get them! I was initially going to order from Full Compass for like the 4th time this week[seriously lol :P], but shipping was almost $13, so I said fu*k that and looked on ebay! I saved OVER the $13 shipping fee from Full Compass on eBay too and got all [4] adapters for only $34/Shipped! hahaha. That was the cheapest I could find them online, especially from the same site/place ;) Anyway, here's the links where I got mine at tonight on eBay!

Neutrik NA2MP Male XLR->Male 1/4" Mono Adapter [I just so happened to score the PAIR of them below from the same seller FWIW]

And here's a few pics of my new to me 15' GakCables that my good phriend Dustin hooked me up with, that I'll be using with the above adapters! Thanks again Caymanreview :)
