Panel Mount Connector
Patch panels are used in studios, or live performance set ups, to make a large number of connections in an easy and mess free way. Using the universal D-Cup sockets, any combination of panel mount connectors can be fitted into an empty panel. This allows the engineer to fully customise a patch panel to suit any need in the studio or in the field.
The most common forms of socket connector are XLR sockets and TRS sockets, though any connection type, whether it be analogue or digital, can be made into a panel mount socket connector.
