Patchbay setup for my studio. help

OK so I'm sure there are a bunch of these on here, but I'm relatively new to using a patch bay and wanted some help setting mine up.

My studio Rig right now is
-focusrite saffire pro 40
-focusrite ISA ONE preamp
-WARM AUDIO WA12 preamp
-1176 Rev A comp/lim

my main purpose for this patchbay is to help me change wiring chain easier in front panel, as all my equipment will be in front something like this


So in the future I probably add new outboard gear like EQ, Comp, etc.
beside using this preamp as a micpre, I also use it to print my final mix. its very nasty to change the wiring back and forth.

is there any way I can setup someting like this:
all the 8 input and 10 output of my saffire pro 40, isa one, warm audio and 1176 going to patchbay. so I can wire up the setup everything from patchbay ?

If yes what patcbay you suggest ?
appreciate it if you guys can help me

Yes that's all certainly possible. One thing you will learn very quickly is patch bays are mostly a very customized proposition and there are a ton of ways to do the same thing. Each person will have their own preferences and ideas on what works best.

A good place to start is checking out redco. They are very knowledgable and can make/sell just about anything to do with patch bays.

The DBX TRS one is a good unit for a small setup like this, it's also an easy and affordable way to start out in patchbay's

I recommend this article, helped me:
Setting up a Patchbay in your Home Studio by TweakHeadz lab

I use a neutrik 48 pointpatchbay with balanced cables for the patchbay connected to my soundcard, and it works fantastic, I also have another one to my ad/da-interface. In my experience it really helps if you sketch out inputs/outputs and really think of how you will use your patchbay before you start to connect all the cables, also remember to always write down what you have connected where.

Good luck and have fun
