    I'm currently building my own pedalboard and I have some questions regarding the isolation of power cables.

    The powerchain will be:
    Powercon connector => cable => power-switch => cable with euro-connector.

    Since everything after the powercon will be built into my case, I was wondering what are good ways to isolate the cables and switch, so I don't get any interference in my signal?


    Thanks in advance!

    I use powercon connectors with my homemade boards and I just make sure the main power cords are not running parallel to my instrument and/or patch cables. My boards are 100% noise free and I've never taken much extra precaution. Just make sure the line and power cords aren't laying on top of each other I guess. I'm not an electrician so I can't tell you the specifics of why but I just know it's possible to be noise free with that scenario. Hope this helps a tad.
