The Behringer mixers, like many, have vertical input jacks. In trying to come up with a good cable-management solution, so my desktop set-up is nice and pretty, I'm running out of ideas. I'm not finding anything but guitar patch cables, which are bulky. I can't fit more than two right-angle patch cables next to each other without playing tetris, crowding the cables so that they're putting stress on each other.
Main Question: Am I really resigned to old-fashioned, 1/4" plugs poking straight up from my box? If so I'm fine with it, but would love some perspective as to why. If I've got options to consider, I'd love to hear them!
The questions below, I provide more to give you a sense of how I've been thinking about this. I don't need them answered per se, but I do welcome an answer if it's the "right" way to think about the problem.
- Are there alternatives to having a thicket of tangled rope snaking out of my Behringer, or is this the convention?
- I've seen snakes, but only ones with 10+ in/output, and all XLR. Are there snakes for smaller mixers like the 802, with 1/4"?
- Are there slim cables ideal for mixers, or highly flexible ones?
