I was once anchoring a gobo, moving blanket fabrication over a cracked open iso booth door once with a heavy cast iron weight about half the size of a cinder block. Marc Ribot then tried to open the door to squeeze in, pulling the iron anchor off the booth and into his skull. He hit the floor, bleed...

A patch bay is preferred, but if that's not practical, plug each cable into it's own pre and label the snake inputs (or individual cables) in the studio by preamp. I do a combo in my workspace... right... but i am talking about taking the cabling from the studio to the control room in the walls... ...

I forgot to mention Louis Phillipe and Reindeer Records. Louis has been working for years bringing battle of the band events and helping high school age musicians get exposure to what realistic music careers involve. He also helps the better bands of that age find ways to record.
