My studio build

Looking forward to the new pictures... I'm currently wiring my patch bays as well... do you have a wiring plan on how you're doing your patch bays? I know signal flow usually goes from the Outputs on the top to the Inputs on the bottom but curious how other people are using them.
I love patch bays. I asked the same question a while back and the answer was... it's a personal choice. I did a diagram using illustrator but I can tell you, as I've had hands on and started wiring, quite a bit has changed, but it was a good place to start. Here is the one I did:

Don’t know about the routing ( didn’t blow up the pic enough) but it sure looks nice. I’m sure these extremely clean diagrams can be useful.

It was a good starting point and it also started me thinking about how it all ACTUALLY works. Then it led me to the questions that you and Sweetbeats were so benevolent to offer answers that WORKED great! I just removed the AUX 1/2 from the patch bay, went direct from AUX 1/2 to EFX unit, then out of it to the patch bay and using patch cables have it feeding channels 17/18 on the M-520. Works great! Thank You!

Next up tomorrow is finally getting all the SND/RCVs connected to a patch bay, connecting my Tascam 388 to a patch bay, and connecting the rest of my outboard gear (Compressor, Tube Preamp, and a few other items I wanted to play with.) Still debating how I want to connect the Cassette/CDR, Teac 32-2B 1/4” 2 track mastering deck as well. All in good time.

I’m really enjoying the M-520 as the heart of my studio, it’s superb and I’m in love!
