Following the generous review from Pro Tools Expert’s James Ivy last week, comes a very kind mention of PatchCAD on Bobby Owsinski’s Music Production Blog as part of his New Music Gear Monday corner! It is a great honour indeed! Bobby is a music industry multidisciplinary giant to say the least with major production and engineering credits under his belt. Respected educator and author (industry staple 23 books!), as well as a pioneer of surround sound, Bobby’s experience and admirable thrust for the latest in technology makes him one of the most in-demand professionals out there.

“It doesn’t matter how large or small your studio is,” writes Owsinski, “you have a mix of both analog and digital gear, and if you want to be able to access everything quickly and efficiently, then you need some sort of patchbay. Designing the signal flow and wiring of a patchbay takes some thought for sure, but something that’s almost always overlooked is how to properly label the jacks on the bay after the wiring is completed. That’s where a brilliant piece of software called PatchCAD becomes a great resource.”

The post continues… “The fact that it’s only £9.99 (about $13USD) makes it almost a no-brainer, since you know that once you’ve added one patchbay, it’s only a matter of time until you add more. Plus, it’s so much easier than trying to measure things up to print out on your word processor (trust me on that).”

Big big thanks Bobby for the kind support and feature!
