Recording Adapter

Can an adapter made from running a cable from a RJ11 jack directly to a 3.5mm stereo or mono plug?


I am not an electronics expert but I don't think so. It keeps the line off hook. There is a large DC component on the line.


Any electroheads want to comment on this...

He's right. Don't try connecting directly from a microphone jack to a phone line. You need both a transformer to isolate the line and a capacitor to block the DC. Without the cap, you'll likely damage your microphone input.
