The best way to run audio cables in new construction

Hi- hope you’re all gettin time to create great music these days!!
I have been researching how best to run a dozen audio cables, some midi and a 16 ch snake AGAINST THE BASEMENT WALLS ON THE DIRT SIDE. Should I float them on the earth side off the blocks or on the Isolated room side (floated off the stud I think?)

I am not sure what’s best, can’t seem to find a Consensus in books or on web so any help or guidance is greatly appreciated as always.

I want to avoid putting these in a pvc pipe or some kind of conduit, is that Necessary btw or can these cables hang freely?

Much Much appreciated!

It would be helpful to make just one thread about your build for the sake of organization and not having to type the same answer twice.

I stated some merits to running your cables thru conduit and some basic things to do when doing so, in your other thread about the audio snake.

Conduit is not necessary but is useful.
