For those that need working cables and don't care about the snake oil stories
I bought myself some fine cable, and plenty of simple jacks, trying to make my own patch cables. I did my best to solder the things together as neat as I could, not having cable tester at the time, meant testing the cables in use. As I used these cables for backpanel connections in my rack to troubleshoot faulty ones was total waste of time. And the whole ordeal of making my own cables too. These Thomann's sssnakes are great. They work! And are cheaper then the sum of its parts if you try to make one yourself, not to mention time used to assemle something like this yourself. They have fixed jacks that don't seem to be made for replacement. Aesthetic quality of plastic casting on jacks is not top notch BUT THEY WORK! and are color coded. Once I plugged them in the back of my rack I didn't touch them, no need. I haven't noticed any change in signal quality (surprise, surprise, its a freaking wire) Cut the chase and get these if you need to connect your soundcard's I/O to your patchbay or mixer they are well worth the money.
I bought this to use with a e-drum kit rack and pads and thought it excellent value compares with buying lots of individual stereo leads. But in the end I didnt use it because in the few days it took to arrive I found I had an other suitable cable set that worked with the set. I have kept this for a spare. The one draw back I see with this unit is that trunking surround the leads is solid. Thererefore I would need to cut through it to enable the jacks to reach some of my pads and particularly cymbals. There are untis that have open spiral trunking whioch enable the cables to be pulled thought at different places while the rest are still held together for neatness. So actually I think I bought the wrong product for my needs .. but no big deal at the price to keep it as a high quality spare.
