I’m running out of channels on my 24 channel mixer and instead of always swapping cables from the back panel, I’m thinking about getting one or two 6,3mm cable patchbays to make the connections more easily available and tinkering around more fun. We are also planning to using my mixer with our band recording, so it would also be convenient for that purpose too.
Patchbays are quite cheap and I guess there aren’t so big differences between models, but moreso I’d appreciate some tips from the experienced patchbay veterans. How to set up channels so that it’s easy to understand the connections and convenient to set up different connections fast? How to deal with effect pedals so that you can route any synths via pedals easily?
