Louis is quite excited about this new Samson patchbay, or at least the box it came in. By Justin Saunders.
“Boring Gear Monday! My patchbay finally arrived. It’s cool how a simple device opens up possibilities for recording and effects chains. Also, Louis appreciates a new box now and then :-D”
Patchbays are among those under-appreciated but very useful pieces of studio gear, especially when one has a lot of synthesizers and I/O channels. I take mine for granted.

I love these fluffy things more than anything.
I know the feeling. They are indeed so precious to us.

This cat sits atop an Alesis QS7 keyboard. In the back, we see a Korg Kross workstation and a Nord Stage that looks quite similar (but not identical) to one we have here at HQ.
