Tour case blues ...

Postby chrisp » Thu Nov 21, 2019 4:18 pm

Many cables have connectors that lock - XLR, BNC word clock, ADAT light pipe to an extent. But I'm having trouble with IEC power cables that keep coming loose.

How do you manage cables like this without continuously having to replug them in?

ditto - that's a good answer, please don't tell me you have to buy a Neve preamp to get them!

Ok, I won't tell you that.

;)

(Seriously though I have no idea where you'd get them standalone. But those AMS Neve pieces have them and they're awesome. Good luck!)
