What is Audio Snake?



XLR to RJ45 Adapter Cable



The term "Snake" is used to refer to a collection of cables securely bundled in a tube or other bundling device. Instead of running many individual cables, you can simply run the snake cable from one site to another, saving time and money.



Sound professionals often use multiple XLR cables or multi-input boxes with multiple XLR connectors to go from stage to soundboard or public address system. But musicians can also benefit from using a cable snake.



Snakes are useful for quitarists who use the "four-wire method" to connect a pedal in front of the stage to an amp in the back of the stage. A pianist might use a snake with multiple keyboards and synthesizers to send the signal to a mixing console or the front of the house.


Professional audio and music applications typically use snakes to transmit analog audio signals; however, some snakes also transmit MIDl and digital audio signal and provides AC power to operate the pedals. A snake may be balanced, unbalanced, or a mixture of the two, and it may have any Combine connection types (XLR, 1/4"DB25, RCA, MIDI, etc.) as desired.
