Douts

Direct Outs for TexMix & 3,5mm to 6,3mm converter

This is a breakout box for the direct outs of the TexMix.  This is valid for '4StereoChannels' and '4MonoChannels' version 1.5 & 1.6, for earlier channel expander versions some DIY would be required (scroll down).

Each module has 8 outputs so it could have 2 '4MonoChannels' connected or 1 '4StereoChannels'.

Without connecting the ribbon cable it's a 3,5/6,3 adapter.

the orientation of the 8 pin ribbon cable is marked by the 'DIRECT OUTS' legend on the PCB of the channel expanders (mono or stereo) and a white line in the DOUTS input header. 

DOUTS has 3 headers on the back, 2 of them are for 4 Mono Channels, the other one, labeled STEREO, is for 4 Stereo Channels.

B.O.M:

  • 8 resistors, 1k, SMD 0603 - CR0603AFX-1001ELF

  • 8 Thonkiconn jacks

  • 6 Jack 6,3mm - 568-NYS234-3

  • 3 Male header, 2x5 pin, SMD 2,54mm pitch - 649-54202-G08-05

  • 6 Male header, 1x3 pin, 2,54mm pitch, TH

  • 6 Female header, 1x3 pin, 2,54mm pitch, TH

 

To build it we recommend:

  • Solder first the 3 male 2x5 SMD headers.

  • Solder the 6 male 1x3 headers to the same PCB.

  • Place the 3,5mm jacks on that PCB and attach to the front panel with the nuts before soldering.

  • Place the 3 female 1x3 headers on the male ones, do not push them all the way down.

  • Attach the 6,3 mm jacks to the front panel with their nuts.

  • Place the 6 small PCBs on the 6,3mm jacks with the Tesseract logo facing out.

  • Check the female 1x3 headers so they're seated fine on those small PCBs.

  • Solder the small PCBs to the jacks and to the 1x3 female headers.

  • Done!
