DIY snakecable? ALESIS DM6 usb express expansion
« on: December 24, 2017, 08:01:19 AM »
Hi guys!

I recently bought a second hand alesis dm6 express usb kit.
I'd like to add the third tom and ride to it, but ofcourse my snakecable doesn't have the 2 extra jacks attached to it. has anyone ever made one of these theirselves? I can't really find one for sale locally, or even in my country. It would cost around 70 euros for the the cable alone, if I add the 2 extra pads I might as well just buy a full drum kit cheaper ;)

So, if anyoen ever made one of those cable snakes themselves, please point me in the right direction or give me some tips. I can solder, but don't know what connection I need for the drum computer end of the cable ( the multipin connector) and don't know the pin layout, although I probably could figure that one out by trail and error.

cheers!
