I understand why certain types of studio prefer TT patch bays however, I prefer the samson patch bays as it is quarter inch to quarter inch cables. This unit is a solid unit unlike other patch bays I have had in the past where you have the quarter inch female adapters falling out of the patch bay. I got this patchy thinking it was going to be cheap and durable only to learn that it is amazing and durable.
Fully balanced and extremely durable, Samson's 48-point patch bay makes all your connections easy. Gone are the days of changing a patch bay's mode by taking it out of the rack, dismantling it and putting it back together in the desired mode! With the S-Patch Plus, all of this can be accomplished from the front panel with a flip of a switch! Simple, affordable and time-saving!

I would buy them again and I would recommend them to a friend. Good built quality and it does what it supposed to be. I don't have a mixer and got more gear then inputs on my interface, so I patch my stuff. I think this is the application it meant to serve.
