Full Normal Patchbays - Normalling patchbays

A fully-normalled patchbay configuration is used to create a connection between two devices while leaving a point of entry for interception from another device.

Without an interception, two devices are connected directly, without the need for a third patch cable for each direct connection. This can quickly clean up a lot of clutter as your setup grows.

With an interception, another device can be quickly inserted into the signal chain. For example, a compressor can quickly be inserted between a console and a computer running Pro Tools just by connecting the compressor to the output of the console and the input of the computer.
