Audio Snake.m4v

Often when doing location recording or sound reinforcement, a multi-conductor cable that can carry multiple mic or line level signals is used. This cable is called a snake, for obvious reasons. It makes the mixer’s job a bit more organized and convenient, since the stage mics can all have shorter cables running from the mics to the head of the snake on stage. After the snake is run to the mixer’s position, the mixer can then plug the tail of the snake into the various inputs on the mixing console, instead of having to run many long microphone , when multiple mixers are working the same event, a split snake will allow the mics to be routed to two different consoles, as in concerts that have a Front of House mixer, and a monitor mixer.
