Simple yet slick audio adapter console


Randy Sarafan’s audio device building streak continues, this time taking the mundane task of the plug adapter to a new level of elegance with the Ultimate Audio Converter

I always find myself wanting to convert between mono and stereo and 1/8″ and 1/4″ jacks and never seem to have the right adapter on hand. The other day I was making two separate adapters for two separate conversion tasks when I had the sudden brainstorm to make a panel with every single mono to stereo and 1/8″ to 1/4″ conversion path I could reasonably think of. And with that in mind I bring you the ultimate audio converter.

It can convert from 1/8″ or 1/4″ stereo to either 1/8″ or 1/4″ mono (with the option to change jack sizes between channels). It can do simple conversion from 1/8″ to 1/4″ in mono and stereo. It can even split a mono signal into a stereo signal (again, with fully selectable 1/8″ and 1/4″ conversion options).

What? no banana jacks? … must have … more … banana … jacks!
