CONVERTING THE BEHRINGER
DD-400 DIGITAL DELAY GUITAR PEDAL
TO A SYNTHESIZERS.COM PANEL MODULE
by Dana Countryman
The "L" bracket is a little too long, so I hacksawed
about 2" off the end. Then I used a metal file to smooth
the end up.
Next, I drilled three holes in the "L" bracket to match
up with the 3 holes in the PC board. With machine screws and nuts,
I attached the electronics to the "L" bracket. Then,
I tested it to make sure it was all still working... which it
Next, I soldered two audio jacks together, end to end. Make sure
the ground section of each jack is soldered to the ground section
of the other.
I had to do a little bending and tweaking to get them to match
up, Then I soldered the terminals together.
Eventually, I just broke off those unused terminals. You need
three sets of these.
Now, mount your double jacks to the back of the panel. Yes, they
look WEIRD, but no one is going to see them, right?
Use these right-angled type of male-to-male 1/4" cables.
Once again, they came from Radio Shack!
Mine are 12" long. If you can find 6" ones, it would
Hook everything up!
I threw a few wire-ties on, to keep it a little neater.
Yes, it looks messy from the back, but no one will know, once
its in your synth!
