I have my patchbay mostly wired and for some reason I can't figure out how to get the 1/8" TRS of my macbook out to 2 channels of my adc patchbay. My patchbay has only TrS connections for each channel. I tried twisting the red wires from both cables and soldering to the Tip l, twisting the blacks for ring and twisting the shields for sleeve And it sounds phasey and weird.

Thanks in advance...

Hey Jesse,

The tip (hot) of your 1/8” TRS from your Mac goes to the tip of the left channel on your patchbay. The ring ( low line) of your 1/8” TRS from your Mac goes to the tip of the right channel on your patchbay. The ground can go to either channel or both. Now you will have a correct stereo signal.
