I need some cables from Darktrain so that I can patch out of ANY SBD>M10.

I have these items and have not encountered a board I couldn't patch into:



This is compact for me and allows me to carry one 1/8" to RCA male cable to make it all work. Around $20 before shipping.

The XLR male adapter is the least used, but I'm glad I had it recently at Hopscotch Festival. The first night's venue gave me a pigtail with XLR female to connect to.

Another tip: Check your levels during soundcheck if possible and again when the band is playing. If you set levels with the house music playing, you are unlikely to get a good read on what the show levels will be like. Also, you may not get anything when the house music is on, depending on how the engineer has your output configured.

And I always ask before I plug in even if I've taped somewhere 50 times before.
