Hi folks. I’m sorry to be thick, but I’m trying to get my head about the XY module and how it can effectively be used. I have a use case in mind that isn’t described in the manual, so I thought I would confirm that my interpretation is correct before diving in.
I’m using a 7U performance case with Stereo Line In 1U and Stereo Line Out 1U for the input/output of sound signals. Both of these are connected to the case’s audio jacks board via the 6-pin cable, and the jacks board’s 3-pin headers are both unused.
I am considering installing an XY IO module so that JP1 is connected to the 3-pin header on the Stereo Line In 1U, and that JP3 is connected to the 3-pin header on the Stereo Line Out 1U. I’m hoping that:
(1) This would turn the X input into an additional stereo/TRS input for audio signals, knowing that this input shouldn’t be used at the same time as the input jacks on the back of the case. That said, I’m curious about what would happen if both inputs were used simultaneously, with (a) both receiving incoming signals, or (b) if something is plugged into both sets of jacks, but one one signal is coming in. I.e., does having something plug into the case’s jacks disable the connection to the 3-pin header?
(2) This would turn the Y input into an additional stereo/TRS output for audio signals, albeit without attenuation. I expect that this outgoing sound signal would be simply split between the jacks on the case’s audio jacks board and the XY module, but please let me know of any other caveats that I might be overlooking. If it has any impact, I also have the Stereo Line Out 1U module linked to a Headphones 1U module via their 3-pin connectors.
Is my interpretation of this module’s use correct? Any illumination would be appreciated.
