So I have a Mackie VLZ802 with only one AUX output that I feed into the Analog Heat input. I want to get two mono signals out of the Heat so I bought a Y-cable (TRS to two TS). I signal still isn’t duplicating like I want it to whether I plug the cable into the Heat input or output. Is there an setting option in the Analog Heat to have a mono input route to stereo output?
To my understanding the solution is to get a Y cable to convert mono to stereo before going into the Heat’s inputs. The important thing is that the mono end must be TS, not TRS.
PS The female end could also be male, but must be TS not TRS - this cable is less common than the you used which is technically stereo to stereo, not mono to stereo
@handed Thanks! I’ll order one of those to see if that works. In the meantime a workaround is to use the headphone out on the Heat as a duplicate output.
Here is a TS mono to mono y cable:
If I don’t care about getting two output signals, I can just run a mono synth into the left input (and out the left output) right?
Yes, but keep in mind the “Round Fuzz” circuit’s left and right channels sound a little bit different to each other
This is silly. I hope a future update will allow us to split a single mono signal to the stereo out. seems like such a simple thing and no-brainer
I just received some of
and I can verify it works to split mono to dual mono for a L/R input on the analog heat.
I too was surprised I could not split a single mono signal to the stereo out…
“I hope a future update will allow us to split a single mono signal to the stereo out”
Solved with AH MKII.
Yes the MK2 does this, which suggests to me that it’s a hardware issue that cannot be addressed in a software update. It’s a shame as I have some mono synths, but I have some DI boxes and other bits of hardware that can split a mono signal so not a complete disaster for me.
MKII does this?
How, exactly please?
I don’t see it in the manual and i’ve been searching online for hours.
I just want to feed a mono signal in the left input, and have it come out both L and R outputs.
Search mono, page 9.
That’s the reference guide to the rear connections of the unit???
Zero info there…
Sure, I can plug in one cable to the left side (mono input), but then it only outputs audio from the left side output. I want to output audio from both outputs of heat. People above this said it could be done. I’m asking how. I’m not sure you understand what i’m asking.
It’s how I understand it. Plug a mono cable in left input, as many machines do for mono signals, L(mono)>L/R
I have an MKI, so I can’t test. Maybe MKII owners would explain that mistery?
INPUT L (mono)/R
Audio inputs. Use either 1/4” mono phone plug (unbalanced connection) or 1/4” (Tip/Ring/Sleeve) phone plug (balanced connection).
will the Heat MKI sum to mono when I plug only 1x TS-cable from L-output into a mono monitor box like Fostex, Avantone, etc.?
