Mixpre-D > AES/xlr out > SPDIF/rca in > (any) recorder
« on: March 20, 2012, 04:47:09 AM »
Read about it somewhere, but I can't seem to find it any longer. Anyway, I am in contact with Ted about making a cable to connect my Mixpre-D digital to any recorder with digital input (which in most cases is spdif). In this case it's a R44.

Ted (tgakidis) told me it is possible to build a xlr > RCA digital cable tying pin 2&3 together on the xlr side, but has anyone done that with a Mixpre-D? Is there something to watch out for or keep in mind. Otherwise, I will ask Ted to make one and see what happens.
Recorders: SD MixPre 3 II; Sony A10; Edirol R44; Sony M10; Sony WM-D6; Edirol R-09HR; iRiver IHP-120; Sharp MD-MT20; Sharp MD-MT190
Microphones: Nevaton MC59/S (cards); Milab VM-44 Links (cards), AT853 7.4mod (cards); AT831 (cards); Nakamichi CM300 (all CP's); Soundman OKM II Rock Studios
Preamps: Beyerdynamic MV100; JK Laboratories DVC-X-17b; Naiant IPA; Nakamichi MX-100 modded for 9v battery use

Correction: I would be tying pins 1&3 together.

It may have been this recent thread but I'm sure there are others.

Ted aksed me to comment on this, since I bought one of these exact cables from him early this year... 

Here is my reply to his PM:

Quote
I'd love to, but I can give no real input...  I never bought the MixPre-D since we got preggers instead...  and I use a HD-P2 and not a 661...

Howver, I can say that I have used your cable to do bit-perfect transfers via the AES output on my R500 > SPDIF input on my HD-P2...  Of course, this means nothing to in the 24bit realm, but it does demonstrate that your cable will pass/convert AES>SPDIF bit-perfectly...


Hope that helps!!!

Oh, Ted's cable was a work of art...  I wanted to sleep with it, but my wife told me no...

Terry

***Do you have PHISH, VIDA BLUE, JAZZ MANDOLIN PROJECT or any other Phish related DATs/Tapes/MDs that need to be transferred???  I can do them for you!!!***

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

Sony PCM R500 > SPDIF > Tascam HD-P2
Nakamichi DR-3 > (Oade Advanced Concert Mod) Tascam HD-P2
Sony MDS-JE510 > Hosa ODL-276 > Tascam HD-P2

Could anyone help me with buying a AES/SPDIF cable (XLR/F to RCA) ?

I got one from DigiGal. She does quality work. She also did a ext. battery cable and modified a ac>dc power supply for my MixPre-D.
