We generally use Hosa snakes around here – they are adequate for our purposes but I can’t officially recommend them as we don’t subject them to the rigors of use on the road or in a busy studio. I have the 1/4″ TRS variant. There are male and female XLR versions too of course if that’s what you need. The pin out is standard, as specified in AES59.
That the connector pinouts are stadard to an AES spec is what I was looking for.
BTW, LOVED the Gear Club Podcast interview with Richard Factor–RIVETING!
Thanks very much!
