Quality TRS patchbay suitable for mastering? Any other solution?

Hi all,

I have a bit of a problem here... I have been shaping up this home mastering setup with a few key pieces. I have a few comps and a few equs. I could use a Neve 8816 as a simple mastering console.

But because I also sometimes make music and mix stuff I need a patchbay. And because 8816 outputs and inputs are in silly order I would need to modify the cables if I get a DB25/TT -bay. That would be a bit of a hassle.

So could I just buy some quality TRS-bay (Signex for example) and call it a day? Heresy?

Any other solutions?

Also be interested to know, as my mastering rig also doubles as a stereo tracking rig recently, and I'm getting annoyed having to go round the back and swap cables all the time!

I don't use them now, but I have a couple of 48-point Bittree TRS bays that performed flawlessly. Whichever way you go, TT or TRS, I highly recommend that you get Charlie Bolois' burnisher and solvent-squirter tools.
