Can the trigger out from a Roland TR-707, 606 or Boss DR-110 act as the clock source for the arpeggiator on the Korg PolySix?

It should, just write in notes (16ths, 8ths, etc) and it will advance the arp for every pulse it receives

Since the Mono/Poly uses S-trig on the arp clock, then I would assume that the Polysix does as well.

You will need to make a cable (or mod your machine) to accept v-trig (from Roland machines).

This picture says it all.

Your assumption is correct. Just checked the schematic and yes - the Polysix uses S-trig

Is it possible to make the cable shown in the above link with 1/4 inch on one end and 1/8 inch on the other? The PolySix doesn't use the Jones connector.

Well the Kenton I have seems to work for both my PolySix and JX-3P, so I'd assume that it would.

Yeah, you can put whatever you want one the ends of the cable. Just make sure tip goes to tip (signal) and sleeve to sleeve (ground).
