Greetings to the Forum:

I have run into a small gap in my knowledge and I hope that someone here can provide me with the missing information.

I need to make up a patch cord for balanced audio which is XLR on one end and a tip-ring-sleeve plug on the other. (I am going from a line output XLR on one board to a line input jack on another.)

The convention for wiring XLR's seems to be:
1: shield
2: High or +
3: Low or -

The question is: what is the accepted wiring convention for a tip-ring-sleeve plug? I would assume that the shield goes to the sleeve, but what about the tip and ring? Which is + and which is - ?

Thanks,
