    I really need to find a schematic that explains wiring a db25 to xlr, I cant quite figure it out and theres no "standard" that relates the db25 to microphone connections, I'm having a hard time understanding the concept for the most part because there are 25 pins, how is this possible when a db25 digisnake terminates to 8 xlr? is one pin just not connected?

    also, if anyone happens to know how this wiring is done, just let me know, for example, pin 1 ground, pin 2 positive, pin 3 negative, & repeat- as well as wich pin is left unconnected and I can figure it out from there.

    I don't want to wire up my own db25 breakout cable to find out that input 1 is showing up as input 8 in protools, or the worse, ive swapped ground with positive or something. I would also like to know how db25 to trs/grounded tip ring sleeve works.

    Help please, any info or tips highly appreciated.

    I'm 99% certain that Digi uses the Tascam pinouts on their HD interfaces. I don't remember the pinout off the top of my head, but it should be easy enough to find out there on the internet...
