If you need to merge, you will have to either add another 1/4" jack or repurpose the AMP OUT connection on the board. Either way, this would require you to add a series buss resistor with the input jack, and that would be a discussion best in the mixers forum or a new thread.

Thanks!

Hi Baltazar,

My ”monitor amp out”  jack is better than a "thru jack" if you want to feed  an unbalanced 1:1 instrument signal to a guitar/bass amp, as this does not load a passive guitar as a normally parallel connected "thru”  jack does.

So keep this "monitor amp out" jack as it is and add instead an extra input jack connected in parallel and mix both input jacks with two suitable resistors (perhaps a good compromise is 22 kohm)  especially if it is two active instruments like synth or similar that you want to mix.

Note, you have to connect the short-circuit contacts in series on the input jacks when they are in parallel, otherwise they short-circuit each other if only one plug is inserted.
This can be done with Cliff Plastic
 ”brake-brake” mono jacks.

Man oh MAN is it hard to buy one of those Carnhill VTB-9045's. My bank outright blocks any and all purchases in the UK because apparently fraud is off the chain right now over there, and my regular credit card company declined the purchase, too. Not sure why, so I'm waiting for a call back to see what happened.

You can cl your bank & have them temporarily unblock the card so you can make the purchase.  I have the same issue w my card thru my credit union. The cards are restricted on out of country buys.

You can also use the Ed Anderson equivalent that Hairball Audio sells. I've used them for Neve builds and they sound great. I haven't made any side by side comparisons but I doubt you'll be disappointed going this route if the Carnhills are difficult to acquire.

Thanks!

I'm actually going to do one of those next.

So I had to talk to my CC company, and do the transaction while I was on the phone with the rep. He made sure it went through. This was after confirming 15 different ways it was actually me on the phone, which was fine. I appreciate the security.

My bank that handles my debit card won't do it. Not even if you sign something. The only time they open up transactions in the UK is if you are traveling to the UK, and you go in and sign something, THEN, AND ONLY THEN, they will partly unlock your card. They will allow you to withdraw cash from ATMs only. No in-store purchases. So you have to pay cash for everything.

But as I said in my previous post, my credit card company helped me with this.
