The latest once upon a synth video takes a look at a piece of gear that’s not the most exciting tool in studios, but often one of the most frequently used – patchbays.
The video looks at how patchbays can be used to bring all the connections in your studio to a central location. This makes it fast and easy to connect the outputs and the inputs of any device in your studio, streamlining your workflow and making it easier to experiment with new audio paths.
“I go over how I use patchbays in my small home studio to generate new ideas. I cover the basics of how they work and then I go over some examples of how I use them in practice. This is not so much a tutorial on how patchbays work technically but it’s more a showcase of how they help inspire creativity.”
