Audio multicore cables consist of multiple channels of individually shielded microphone cable, often terminated with a stage box at one end for use in the pro audio field and referred to as a multicore.
When to use a Multicore?
A multicore is typically used to connect performers on stage to a mixing desk the side of stage for monitor mixing, or front of stage for FOH mixing. Microphones and DI boxes are plugged into the stage box and taken through the multicore cable to the fan end connectors. Returns channels enable signals to be taken from mixer back to performers on stage, useful for returning the main and aux channels back to the stage for connection with foldback monitors and main speakers.
Multicore Cables for Recording Studios
A studio with an isolated control room will often use a multicore cable to transfer signals from the recording room and back to the control room mixer. Running the multicore cable through the wall or ceiling is typical and depending on studio design and budget, a stage box attached to a wall or inbuilt wall mount plates will be used to simply studio room connections.
