Topic: patchbay to complement my UFX
Hello friends. Love my UFX. I need a patchbay to go with it, tired of looking in the back of my rack with these olden eyes and a flashlight. Can't do high end right now, looking for middle of the road. I was going to order Samson SA SPATCHPLUS:
Any recommends for tight budget? Also, I'm still confused by balanced/unbalanced. Will this work for my home recording needs? I am currently running XLRs into my Mackie CFX 20 Mixer, and going 1/4" insert out of Mackie channels into the UFX one through eight 1/4"s on the back. I run my most important components into the front XLR 9-12 ins of the UFX (say Bass Drum, Snare Drum, Overheads). Laugh if you must, but I am getting excellent recordings right now. A nice catalogue of waves plugins certainly help, as well as decent microphones and nice sounding gear.
Any advice? I'd also welcome high end recommendations as I will eventually upgrade...but tight budget right now.
Thanks for reading this far. Appreciate any help...
