TRS connectors XLR

I have a blueprint for a side chain connector for my tracker. I'm going to use TRS connectors instead of XLR so it can patch into my patchbay. My question is where does the +,-, and ground go. I'm guess the + goes to tip (pin 2 on an XLR), the - goes on the ring (pin 3 on XLR) and the ground goes on the sleve (pin 1 on XLR), is this corect?

Where did you get the db/9 or whatever connector that plugs into the trakker and the tools do do the wiring?

Radio shack. I don't believe any of the audio signal passes through the side chain wiring or eq, so I figured they'd be fine.
