    While these aren't the cheapest, I was surprised at the quality and they all fit nicely. They also match the colorway.

    you can find TRS to TRS cables - and MIDI cables - on our website (or anywhere). These work perfectly between our devices.

    It's just a normal 1/8" TRS cable, right?

    Also, can you recommend a midi cable going direct from black box to blue box? I just saw Stimmings review and happy to see you can bypass the bulky 5 pin din, but not sure what the cable is called. Thanks!

    Generally speaking, you need the smallest cable ends you can find. We sell two lengths of 3.5 stereo - 3.5 stereo TRS on our website and these work perfectly. Black magic adapters (from sweetwater) are the best so far. I would suggest staying away from Hosa cables and adapters for the bluebox. We love Hosa - they make great cables. However, the spacing on the bluebox is not very forgiving. I don't use much 1/4" gear but I do have a pair of these and they work great.

    I also really like these:

    TRS mini stereo to dual 3.5 mono. Perfect for connecting Eurorack gear.
    3' & 6' lengths

    The issue is: Hosa adapters and ends are not consistent in size. Until we can put our hands on them all - with a bluebox - it is tough to say which are best. Thanks for sharing this.

    I got a bit nervous reading this, because I could've sworn I read that the Hosa adapters fit nicely. I just received my Bluebox, along with 6 Hosa converters and can confirm they fit side by side with a little room to spare.

    Maybe OT but i use mini stereo -> mini stereo (between blue box and some Korg Devices) and find these really good:

    A very good compromise of quality and price is the Cordial CFY-series. Perfect fit on the Bluebox.

    I used some sandpaper on my plugs that were a little wide- just some flat spots on the sides, nothing crazy.

    I use Adam Hall and they seem to do well. They're *just* wide enough that you're not sure if they're fitting or not, tho, so while the ones sitting in the middle pressed from both sides are definitely okay, I'm a bit worried about the ones on the ends.

    Lately I got a cordial rca to 1/8 and it fits perfectly and I think sounds pretty great

    thank you for the kind response. I agree, HOSA cables are fantastic, but the spacing is an issue on this particular box. The HOSA cables have a fatty grip (which is great until you need space)

    Thank you for the resources! Skinny heads for the 3.5mm plugs <3 Thx again!
