I am a senior citizen, and need a little help. I have always run cables across the floor to the mixer when our group gets together to play music. I moved last year, and thought I might try to do something a little more professional in my music practice area.
I am looking to install four musical stations or "chairs" in my basement, and each chair will have access to two Neutrix Combo Inputs. (see link below: XLR and 1/4Inch in each plug-in). When I was finishing the basement I only ran two cables to each face plate location. Now I am looking to do some soldering and connecting the in wall cables to the Mixer on one end and wall plates on the other end.
Initially I thought I would dedicate one input for instrument, and one input for microphone. Now I am seeing that if someone plugs the mic into the guitar input, or guitar into the mic input, it will send the signal to the wrong plugin on the mixer and possibly give me some serious problems.
Can anyone advise if I can connect the microphone side of the two connectors together and run them on one wire to the mixer and terminate it on an XLR input, and then connect the instrument side of the connectors together and run them on one wire, to the mixer and then connect the 1/4 inch input on the mixer.
I am thinking that this would solve the problem of plugging the wrong connector into the wrong socket for one. But I am not sure if "daisy chaining" the two connectors will cause me any problems that I do not know to ask about right now?
Thanks for the advise.
