Cableing / Patchbay question.

Cableing / Patchbay question.

Sorry if this is a newby question, but I am weak in my understanding of cabeling.

I am getting ready to cable up my studio and include a Neutrik patchbay. This patchbay has 1/4 in. balanced ins and outs.

I want to connect my mic pres and soundcard i/o to it so I don't have to get behind my racks.

Here is my question. If I run balanced connections through out my chain, can I connect mics directly to the patchbay using a XLR to 1/4 inch balanced cable.

Can I just plug the mic straight into the patchbay like this?

If not, what is the best way to get into my pres with mic cables without having to get behind the rack?
