I'm working on an acoustic to electric conversion kit and I noticed that most people use 1/4 inch jacks. I was wondering if it would still work to wire my triggers to a 3.5mm female trs jack and then use a 3.5mm male to 1/4 inch male cable to connect to my module. I will be using an Alesis Trigger i/O if that matters. Also, would the wiring for the 3.5mm female jack be the same as the wiring for a 1/4 inch female jack? Thanks for the help.
you can find answers to this type of questions easily via google and similar, especially when searching for images.
There is no magic in this case: viewed from the cable connect inner wires to inner wires through jacks, and outer wires to outer wires (shielding); if in doubt, check connectivity between cable and jack-metal-surfaces with an ohm-meter or similar. No big deal in the right hands.
Why would you do that ? If you want to use the vent holes without removing them or drilling, you can try a female 1/4 similar to this Proel P230 - the inner piece with the cap removed is just the right fit for a standard vent hole without drilling !
