Tiptop Audio MIXZ Bus Mix Bypass

So I decided that I wanted to connect all of the Tiptop Audio 808/909 drums to a pair of MIXZs via the Bus Mix option. The only hitch is that I still wanted each of the 808 and 909 drum modules to have their own dedicated mixer while remaining together in the same row. My solution for now is to bypass the Bus Mix right after one of the MIXZs.

1. Gather up the parts.

2. Locate the first four conductors opposite of the red stripe on the ribbon cable. Snip down between the fourth and fifth conductor roughly 1cm and then snip off all four conductors.
