Here is a great idea for adding subsnake and patching capability to a new or an existing splitter system.

The PatchMaster incorporates five W1 multipin inputs connected directly to color-coded tails. The tails exit through grommets so they may be retracted into the panel. Tails can be dressed to length for a neat appearance and unused tails can be pushed back and out of the way.

Tails Retract When Not In Use                     5 Subsnake Inputs on W1 Multipins                       Color-coded Tails with Snakeskin
The Whirlwind PATCHMASTER System.

We built this system in response to sound companies that had expressed a desire to add subsnake capability to their
existing systems.

It consists of a rack panel with backbox and four Whirlwind W1 multipin input connectors. Each W1 is equipped with
Snakeskin™ color-coded dustcaps wired through to four sets of output tails, 8 channels each.

Simply locate the PATCHMASTER near your input panel or stagebox, plug in a drop snake (such as the pictured
Mini-12) and patch the tails to any of your inputs.

This system also eliminates the possibility of connecting two mic lines to the same input XLR.

Pick any 5 of the Mini-12, MultiSnake12 or DrumDrop color-coded boxes and connect them to the PatchMaster with "C" series W1 - W1 cables.

After you've patched your channels for the first time, it's a simple job to drop the boxes at various points on the stage and get connected and patched with only 5 cables to the splitter.
