How To Recall Hardware Cable Connections

Posted by Ms.Tris On August - 12 - 2008

Good morning all…hope you’ve been banging out nothing but hits!~ I have a lot of things in store after this week. I’ll be getting one of those screen recorders for tutorials, adding new beats,graphics, and more drum kits. I’ve started 3 projects, and things are going smooth.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, pictures can also save you from a thousand headaches..When I first bought my Mpc, I didn’t have a clue about midi connections to my sound modules. Once I finally got everything connected, I took a picture of my connection. …

Now if I rearrange my studio and have to move equipment, I can refer to the photo. In the picture above you can see I have various colors for midi cables, and I wrote on certain ones. Another thing to have around the studio along with sharpies, is masking tape. You can wrap a little around each end of cable and label the connections appropriately. To give an idea, I may label one end “to guitar” and the other end “to mixer channel1”

In the long run this could come in handy as you upgrade, or build onto your studio.

Happy labeling..:-)

Pz Til Later
