    Recently bought an RJM Mastermind PBC (and a new pedalboard for it)...

    Looking for info on patch bays. I am a proficient solderer, so I'd like to tackle it myself as I already have most of the parts available (enclosure, jacks, wire, etc.).

    I've seen things like Goodwood Audio's "The Interfacer" and other styles by Rack Systems, LA Sound, etc. etc. etc. Because I have the PBC, so much of what I need is already built in so the buffers, mono/stereo summing, etc. is unnecessary for me.

    Is building my own patch bay as simple as putting jacks on each side of the enclosure, wiring them up, and plugging in? What am I NOT considering? Do the more "professional" boxes include other circuitry/grounding/etc. that I should consider?

    Primarily, I just want to have easy access to the PBC's: In 1-4, Out 5-6, In 7-10, Output 1/Left, and Output 2/Right. Basically, 5 thru-puts.

    What are you guys doing that I should be thinking about?

    kind regards,

    The moderators will likely not move your thread. You might want to move it to the recording forum to get more replies.
