Ok, I went ahead and figured this out. I got a stereo headphone splitter from local Radio Shack and cut off both female ends to expose the wiring. Black red and white wires on each split.
I found that the shoulder(closest to the cable) of the 1/8″ male is the common for the GS500. The tip of the male headphone adapter is the white left channel and the next slot is the red, right channel for the GS500. Also, the shoulder of the mono ATR55 is also the common with the tip of the ATR55 being the active signal.
This is the setup for the GS500 anyway.
So I got a couple female mono ends and soldered the white from one of the splits to the connection on the mono female to align with the tip of the male ATR55. On the other split, I soldered the red to align with the tip of the other male ATR55. This creates a nice way to get stereo separation onto the audio of the GS500 if you have a use for it in this configuration . And I do.
Total cost for parts about $10.00
Hope this helps someone else in the future.
