    Default Multicore cables - diy-ers, how do they work ?

    Anyone out there looked into or already know how the multicore cables work?

    Surely its just about how they are connected ? Is this something the diy-ers out there could build themselves? They just seem a bit over priced for what they are.

    actually, just to add (after many disagreements on here last week or so about what they did) that when i say how do they work, i mean with regards to how they allow you to still pass a signal to your mixer without the audio 8 or laptop being on.

    come on diy modders. How do these things work is it just a case of joining some cables together?

    Ok ... would an rca splitter on the end of the technics cable work with an rca cable going to phone on the mixer and one going to the input on the audio 8?

    Whats the problem with this ? is this in effect all the multicore cable is doing?

    Damn you djtters i will get you to talk!

    What more could it possibly be? I've eventually found some posts on the NI forum about them but they have been closed now. People are warey of the loss of signal quality doing it this way but like you say surely thats all the NI ones are doing.

    They look pretty.

    You can make your own that will be just as good. Infact you don't need the connectors if you can solder you could buy the cable and the ends and solder away.
