studio diagram

Equipment scattered around the diagram:

  • Radio Shack 270-054 Ground Loop Isolator
    - placed where needed to break ground loops
  • Two Behringer UltraPatch Pro
    - Patchbays (shown in diagram where each patch point is connected)
    • "A" patches are in the recording rack
    • "B" patches are in the mastering rack

Note: UniQuad DJ-3 is not in the photos on the other page. It is the master selector control for the stereo system, surround sound feed, and monitors, so it is in the stereo system, not the production system. It acts as the interface between the two systems.

In the diagram, UniQuad DJ-3 is:

  • A program source (out)
  • The signal path to the monitors (in).

The monitor system can send sound to a surround sound system, stereo speakers, a mono hookup, a bad reference set of speakers, or performer cue monitors.
