Trunk Lines (Moog / Synthesizers)

{"ops"=>[{"insert"=>"The term \"trunk\" originally came from telephone systems. Back in the days of manual switchboards, a \"line\" connected the switchboard to a subscriber's telephone; a \"trunk\" connected the switchboard to another switchboard. Studios adopted the term \"trunk\" to refer to a cable that connects one studio room to another. E.g., if you were recording in one room, but decided that a certain part needed to be recorded in another room (say, for acoustic reasons), you'd use a trunk to connect your board to the board in the other room, where the mic was connected. \n\n I have a simple trunk setup; it consists of four cables that go from my patch bay to the synth, come in from the back, and then hang from an opening in the front. I can take one of them and use it sort of like using a patch cord in a switchboard; pull it out and connect to an output. I do this because, as I'm standing in front of the modular, the patch bay is behind me and to my left. If I just run a cable directly from the patch bay to the synth, it's where I will trip over it. Also,when I need to roll the case out away from the wall so I can get to the back, it helps if there aren't cables laying on the floor in front of it.\n\n\n"}]}
