The Behringer Ultrapatch Pro PX3000 1/4" TRS patch bay! The 48-point PX3000 features top-side switches to toggle between Normal, Half-Normal, and Through modes for convenience. It's all metal! Its pretty nifty if you use 1/4" TRS cables to patch into your mixer. I've had myPX3000 patch bay for over 5 years and have had not had one issue out of it! I've had 2 AP bays that crapped out. I've never taken it out of my rack or studio. But it seems pretty tough (all metal casing).
