Subject: RE: [motm] Breakout Panel

From: "Dave Bradley" <daveb@...>
Date: 2000-04-04

I used 2 Hosa 8 conductor snakes for the CV and Gate jacks. They are
currently wired directly to the breakout panel, but later will be wired to a
multipin connector on the back panel, which then goes to the breakout box. I
also brought the DIN sync clock and start/stop out to front panel jacks, so
I can drive sequencer clocks from midi.

I'd use shielded cable, no reason not to.
