just finishing building a small basic synth unit, stands alone and runs on 9v - it has a banana patch bay of outputs and inputs. when i tried to link another similar unit's outputs to its inputs, it didn't work. even trying to send an oscillator voice from the second unit through the main audio out of the first unit didn't work. is this because they're running from different power sources?

Separate supplies, yes, in a way ... you'll need a ground connection between the two devices for cross patching to work.

ah, makes sense - a simple banana jack to each ground will do? are there any drawbacks to this?

When all is properly made, nope.
