Samson 48 Channel Patchbay I NEED HELP!!!

I will try my best to keep this as short as possible but I am in need of patchbay routing help.

Here is my gear:
24(24 in and 24 out) channel samson patchbay
4 individual rack unit channel strips
2 dbx stereo compressors or 4 mono compressors
1 18i20 Focusrite interface.

I want to be able to easily connect all this thru my patchbay but sad to say I am lost.

I have 8 mic inputs on my interface and I have to do back flips to wire them all in and its a mess. I know that patchbays can save me a lot of time and mess but I just cant get my head around it.

I would also ask what specific patch cables should I be using.

Any help

Lives for gear

Use patch cables that are long enough to reach. The kind with three sections, like a stereo headphone jack.

Outputs go on the top row. inputs go underneath them.

Start with your interface on the right side of the patch bay in the last eight positions - interface 8 in position 24

Start with your favorite compressor in the first position on the left and keep adding units.
