Where to solder GND on 16 CH AES Cable (Yamaha pinout)?

Hi, I would like to build a pair of 16 CH AES/ EBU multicore cable with 25 pin Sub D connectors on each end. The pinout follows the Yamaha standard. I plan to use 16 Ch 110 Ohms multicore cable with individual drain wires, which I want to use for the ground the signal. Could anyone help me to understand, how the grounding signal has to be soldered to the connectors correctly?

Kind regards

you just need an 8-pair aes cable as each one carries a stereo pair.

ground from any of these eight channels go to 10, 12, 13 and 22, 24, 25, the order doesn't matter (so shield from aes1 can go to any of the pins for ground; the missing two grounds you just solder two any of the pins so two of these pins will get two grounds) - and forget about 26 and 27 going to chassis, they are not needed!
