View Full Version : Processor to Blue Sky balanced cables required
30-04-2004, 10:11 AM
I've just ordered a set of Blue Sky's and a Lexicon MC8B processor and now need to sort out the cables.
I need 2 15m, 2 10m & 3 6m cables - where from? I know I can go to a music shop and get microphone leads from there, but are they good enough and will they do them long enough? I just orderd some brackets from Canford for the BS's and while on their site had a look at their balanced cables, but the longest I could see were 10m.
Also do I need Male>Male, Male>Female or Female>Female XLR connectors (forgot to check when I had the BS's on demo :blush: )?

I can't help on the matter of where to get the cables from, but you should need Male->Female leads, as XLRs use one for inputs and one for outputs, to stop sound engineers, out of their minds on drugs and distracted by groupies, blowing up expensive kit :lol:

I deeply resemble that remark w)
As a sound engineer I may have never blown up anything (well not that I've admitted to anyway :blush: ), but as for being off my head on drugs..........
and as for the groupies, we are the last ones to get a look in as we are packing it all away while everybody else is down the pub :x~:-x~:mad:

You're saying you've never experienced the levels that some groupies will sink to for a backstage pass? :o~:-o~:eek:
(I haven't either, but I know people who have)
I haven't found anywhere selling pre-made up 15m XLR leads either. :(

I;d have thought Groundy could do them. Scorpion Cables.
If not The Chord Company will do leads to length

Well I don't suppose working for church groups is the right enviroment for getting laid by the groupies :D~:-D~:grin:
note to self: remeber that just because you don't like 'boy bands' doesn't mean its not a good idea to do the sound for them :twisted:

I did think about Scorpion Cables, but they do not mention XLR cables on their web site. I'll PM Groundy and ask anyway.
Do you have a web address etc for Chord? I'll take a look if I can find them.
