Hi everyone,

This may sound ridiculous to you, but I'm experiencing trouble with cabling Smile

On the back of the Nord Modular G2, there are four outputs. In the manual it is suggested
to connect the left line in channel of the soundcard to the output1 and the right right
line in channel of the soundcard to the output2, otherwise it will run mono (output1 only)


I'm sorry I have no idea what the english for these cables is so I'll try to explain it somehow.
The cable that is supposed to be connected between the soundcard and the Synth is a 2x male with
left and right (which one is the red, left or right?).

Now I have to use the special adapter (again I have no clue about the correct name) that is often used to connect
headphones to soundcards and HiFi systems (it makes of thin, thick). This adapter will be used to connect the two
males (left and right) to the back of the Modular G2.

The problem with this is, I have a 'special adapter which makes of thin, thick' (lol) that merges the two males
(left and right) to one and it becomes a 'special adapter which makes of thin, thick'. I'm wondering what this
specific one is for since I can't connect only one output on the Synth otherwise it would transfer in mono
(but both left&right are connected, that's paradoxal!).

Well, I'm sure the right names of the cables would be of great help in order to understand this so I give
you my apologies in advance Smile

Regards

-Carthago

The "thin" jacks are probably 3.5mm, also called mini or 1/8".
The "thick" ones are 1/4" phono.
Both types can be either stereo (sometimes called TRS, for tip, ring and sleeve) or mono. You can tell the stereo jacks because they have an extra black line around them.
Some systems also use "RCA" jacks which are the kind usually found on tape decks.
You need two mono 1/4" jacks to plug into the G2. The other end of the cable or adapter depends on what inputs your sound card has. You should be able to find cables that go from one to the other with a little searching.
Here's one place:
