What is a Patch
What is a patch is a question usually asked in the world of pro audio, and generally refers to a particular aspect of signal flow. In commercial and home recording studios, patch panels, also known as patch bays, are the epicenter of hardware and routing for different types of audio and multi effect devices.
With the growing trend of home recording becoming more popular, options of quality hardware and effects units are more commonly found in bedroom studios across the country. The best way to utilize the options these devices present is through the use of a patch panel or patch bay. In this application, all of your hardware devices and multi effects are “patched” together at the patch bay, creating versatility in signal flow and also eliminating the need to plug / unplug your devices each time you want to utilize a specific hardware device. This can help prolong the life of your gear, protecting the input and output jacks from overuse.
What is a patch panel without high quality patch cords? This is an often overlooked aspect of audio production, and is fundamental in good signal reproduction and proper equipment function. Bittree specialize in offering the highest quality patch cords for audio, video, and data, and are the manufacturers of the highest quality patch bays and patch panels for commercial and residential studio installations.
In audio recording, a patch is often associated with software synthesizers, whose sounds can be arranged in virtually endless ways. These sounds can later be recalled and saved as a “patch” for use. This is a huge timesaver in the studio, as certain commonly used sounds can be instantly recalled for immediate application and further sound manipulation.
