Yamaha AES DB25 Pin Switching
« on: September 08, 2014, 10:44:21 pm »

So I have a Yamaha MY8-AE96 and an AD8HR.  I though that I could take a straight through cable and connect these.   I was wrong and the more I think about it...its pretty logical. Both units output CH1 on pins 5 and 18 of the DB25, so a stright through cable ends up connecting two outputs together. At the end of the day my pinout needs to be as follows...
1 to 5
2 to 6
3 to 7
4 to 8
14 to 18
15 to 19
16 to 20
17 to 21
with GNDs on 10,12,13,22,23,24,25.


Any idea of an elegant way to do this?  I have two DB25 break in/outs tied together now...but its not pretty.  Did Yamaha make a special cable for this? Does it have a name?

I don't think Yamaha did, but Wireworks does. Just tell them what you want and they will know which cable. They do Yamaha-Yamaha, Yamaha-Tascam, and any custom config you might need.

I believe that Yamaha does have a solution that breaks the single DB25 at the MY8-AE96 into a "Y" that then places all inputs on one leg of the "Y" and all outputs on the other.  It is listed as being for your very application.
It is part # AES SPLIT CABLE.

A single cable option as others have recommended would probably be more elegant and probably much more cost effective.
