Hello folks,
since I found a way to running two Zoom F8 simultaneous (with 16 XLR Inputs) it would be great if there is any chance to get one headphone signal of booth Zoom F8 units.
So I need a 6.3 or 3.5mm stereo Y-cable to split two signals into one. In a thread of gearslutz a user mentioned that he just built such a cable. Unfortunately I don't know how to do that.
Any help or suggestions where I can buy or get such a cable??
Thanks and greetings from Germany

Ask Ted or Robb, you can see their cable making threads in "retail"
If they can't do it it prob can't be done
Mics - AKG ck61/ck63 (c480b & Naiant actives), SP-BMC-2
XLR Cables - Silver Path w/Darktrain stubbies
Interconnect Cables - Dogstar (XLR), Darktrain (RCA > 1/8) (1/8 > 1/8), and Kind Kables (1/8f > 1/4)
Preamps - Naiant Littlebox & Tinybox
Recorders - PCM-M10 & DR-60D

That might not work terribly well.  Depending on the output impedance of the headphone out, the two outputs will load each other, which will both reduce the signal level at the headphone as well as waste a lot of power.  A better approach would be to send the output of one device into the line input of the other and let that device mix the two signals (if the devices have that capability).

If you insist on the cable approach you ought to have series resistors built into the cables, maybe 33 to 47 ohm or so.
