Its just a 1/4 plug with nothing connected or wired in.
Any Radio Shack store will have them.
Below is a link:

Hey bill,

Love your stuff. Great fan of the whole effectology series. Can’t wait for the next video.

I’m a bit confused with regards to the dummy plug. You mentioned that the dummy plug is just a standard jack with no connections. So I’m guess that means you could just take a standard guitar cable, take the plug off the end and trim down the wires so that only the plug remains. I’ve tried this but I am unable to get my distortion pedal to sound without any input. Maybe it’s because I’m not using the Big Muff Fuzz (i’ve got a Proco Vintage Rat). Surely you have to short the dummy jack or something to get the pedal to sound permanently?

Thanks Man!
yes any plug with the wire emoved will work.
Its pluged into the input so the unit will turn on with out any thing connected
Not sure how noisy a rat is.
Crank every thing up, I would THINK you would hear some noise or hiss.
If not add a booster or another distortion after to get the levels of noise up.
A compressor after the rat will work to.
The goal is to MAKE noise!

Hi Bill
Awesome as usual.  You inspire me
The poratamento effect is what I have been missing with my microsynth and my moogerfoogers.
I just picked up the v256 and all I can find are TRS 1/4 to XLR adapters can they be used? and do I need them for both the in and outs.
I just wanted to ask before I ordered the adapters
Thanks!

Hey Eddie
Yes with the V256 you need adaptors to plug your guitar in and out.
They can be found here:

XLR male to 6.3mm 1/4” Female Mono mic Stereo Adapter

http://cgi.ebay.com/XLR-male-6-3mm-1-4-Female-Mono-mic-Stereo-Adapter-/230518340432?pt=PCA_Speakers&hash=item35abf6bb50


XLR Female to 6.3mm 1/4” Female Mono mic Stereo Adapter

http://cgi.ebay.com/XLR-Female-6-3mm-1-4-Female-Mono-mic-Stereo-Adapter-/320585837664?pt=PCA_Speakers&hash=item4aa467ac60

There is a big list of them here:
