Default Re: Confusion over DIN sockets

Surely you just need a mono (3 pin) lead, and you switch the amp to mono when recording? 3 pin is compatible with 5 pin, but you only get the left hand channel. The connectors were originally a mono design and were extended to support stereo, which is why the pin numbering of the 5 pin plugs is so odd.
