A Great Patch Bay from Switchcraft

Switchcraft's StudioPatch 9625 is designed to fit seamlessly into either an analog or digital studio environment. The StudioPatch 9625 simply connects to I/O interfaces with common DB-25 cables. The StudioPatch 9625 is conveniently laid out with two groups of 24 channels of TT (Bantam) jacks. Each group of eight has its own in and out DB-25. Depending on your studio's normaling requirements, the StudioPatch 9625 has changeable normals by the turn of a household flathead screwdriver. For each of the 48 channels these normaling positions can be set to either full normal, half normal, or non-normal modes. And yes, you can pass phantom power to your condenser microphones with the StudioPatch 9625.

Worth it!

First off, I tried a few patch bays. The main problem with the other patch bays (1/4" versions) was that I never knew which cable was bad - and there are 96 cables in the back alone, that's really bad.In addition, I tried out a couple units that had the "flip for normal vs. not normal" - also a pain to incorporate.The Switchcraft has these advantages: (1) It's extremely easy to change from normal to half-normal to not normal connection. This might seem trivial, but it really makes a huge difference.(2) When you use this with some D'Addario modular snakes, and the combination is absolutely awesome. The D'Addario snakes with the breakout cables give you lots of great wiring options. Clean wiring in the back, and rugged solid DEPENDABLE connections. In all, one of the best purchases I've made.

Patch 9625 - does what was expected

Really well made, excellent sockets, good connections... Now would like to exchange all my patch modules into this new model... but it would require too many changes in our studio instalation

CAVEAT EMPTOR (buyer beware) - if you are not too experienced with routimg, using dsub cables, snake cables, bantam cords, etc., then this may not be for you. However if you have tons of outboard gear and you want to consolidate all of your studio in a patfchbay - this is the one! It did take me just a little while sorting out my crummy DB-25 cables, but finally I got at least a start on this. Remember its not magic and it really doesn't do anything other than, I would say, consolidate your studio into an easy accessible way to increase your workflow. I couldn't stand having to connect, re-connect, dis-connect, etc., cables in the back of my rack mount (in the dark abyss of tangled cables) just to get a particular mic pre or EQ loaded up in PT. Now I can do it all just by adjusting Bantam cables. You will need DB-25 to DB-25 cables, snake cables (if your outboard gear requires it i.e. lunchbox), and bantam (i call them batman cables) cables. Really you only need about 32 total bantam cables. I am only using right now 16 "channels" for lack of a better word on this and I still have room for about a million dollars more worth of outboard gear. That being said the 6425 model would probably be more condusive to your workflow especially if you have a fair but not a lot of OTB gear. Oh and it helps if you have an Avid I/O BTW :) All in all, its simple, effective and actually fun to use. And I thought I could never figure it out (actually it was just dumb luck on my part but its operational and I'm liking it!

tt/dsub patchbay

bought 2 of these units and now control every piece of gear in my studio. quiet operation and three way normaling from front of unit. solid connectors front and back with grounding that makes sense. phantom power off while patching!

Awesome Patchbay!

This is the best TT patchbay available! Changing the normals is so easy and can be done from the front of each channel. Changing the grounds for phantom powered mics is also easy. DB25 connectors make connecting everything so simple and fast. Plus, it's blue! How can you beat that?
