Thanx.

It's L-4E6S... you should really check the sticky on making interconnects.

Yeah, funny thing about that, I ended up reading the sticky shortly after i got up this afternoon. A pronounced "D'OH!" was heard coming from me.

Made some interconnects with Mogami 2534 microphone cable...


As well as 2 AKG K1000 cables for RKV...

Figured I'd add my Cat5 cable here:



(I paid 4 bucks a piece for those darn plugs...stupid Radio Shack)



It works perfectly so far! It's great to have a short cable around.

mmm turned out looking good man!

edit, archos: are those the neutrik deluxe black connectors? how do they sound compared to the normal neutriks? i've only used the normal ones to date but am considering getting some black deluxes for my next set of mic/speaker connectors......

Yes. They didn't have another standard Neutrik in stock so that's why I went all black. Didn't realise it until later but it kind of maintains the "black motif of the amp! Also made a much longer cable with speaker leads. I thought the stock one sounded a little thin. These sound fantastic.

excellent. ill grab some next time i order from the neutrik guys. how do u find the mogami compared to say starquad?

i got a heap of connectors, techflex, and cable on the way so it's almost time to bed down and make some more got to make some patch cables for the studio, in a variety of colours of course

I've never heard the StarQuad. From what I've read everywhere supposedly the Mogami sounds better than the StarQuad. That's just what I've read. The place I bought it at didn't stock StarQuad so that only left one other choice locally. So far I've been happy with the results.

cool. im extremely happy with my proel hpc210 i've been using. and 1/3rd the price of starquad too. just bought another 10m of the stuff today to make patch cables. when theyre all done ill post pics im kind of hesitant to move to starquad due to the extra cost but i still would like to try it out.....

apologies about the lighting. its hella dark in my room at night (black furniture everywhere doesnt help much :P wish i could adjust my camera's flash settings also.

anyway as promised, patchcables. proel hpc210. an assortment of colours. unsure of the connector brand, believe they may be old switchcrafts. set up to run as balanced/stereo cables (never know what you will need in the future, the stereo connectors were cheaper then mono ones coz they were old stock needing to be cleared). coloured so i can easily identify what's connected to what.

each color (black, yellow, red, greed, blue, purple) has two cables, one with black shrink on it to identify between left and right or each mono signal (depending on how i route the signals in the soundcard). the red pair runs from the back of my mixer to my old sound card. and the black from my synth to my old soundcard. havent been bothered repatching everything just yet though.

new soundcard is an ESI waveterminal 192m. not the most amazing sounding card but for the price, it had all the functions i needed, does everything i need very well.

anyway, enough blabbing, here are the pics:









i spent the entire day soldering cables. im spent. rsi kicking in.

A couple of mini to mini cables - Switchcraft right angle and Canare F-12 with Canare Star Quad and multifilament TechFlex.





The cable and cover is ever so slightly larger than the diameter of the Switchcraft plugs...it took forever to make that cable!

Any noticable difference in sound quality between the switchcraft and canare connectors? (I doubt there is but I figured I'd ask anyway)

Nope, not a bit. Pick the one that looks best to you!
