My TV camera generates stereo audio, like most cameras do. However, my local ATV repeater only supports mono audio. So to transmit a nice audio signal with my TV pictures, I needed a way to convert the stereo signal to mono.
Searching the web for a simple solution I found this circuit, published by Peter N. Petersen:
The circuit is a traditional opamp based mixer. The opamp suggested here is a TL072, unfortunately that chip was out of stock here. I found a nice replacement in my junk box: the LF356, although it has a different pin layout. Most opamp’s with FET inputs will probably do the job.
