hello everyone, when connecting the output of a MONO device (guitar/di box etc) ie a 1/4" mono jack plug to the 1/8" stereo 'line in' of a sound card is the mono signal wired so as to 'split' it between the 2 stereo channels or is it just fed into 1 channel leaving the other 'open'? i've been told that there is a 1/4" mono to 1/8" stereo adaptor plug you can buy (i've tried everywhere). also i understand that by using an ordinary 1/8" mono adaptor it will 'short out' one of the sound cards channels & possibly do damage - is this true? can anyone please enlighten me? - ramzoid.
