Easy-to-ID insert loom (3m). All moulded plugs. The 4 x TRS (insert) ends have got 2 different coloured cables coming out of the cable boot. These 2 colour correspond with the In/Out (unbalanced 1/4″) tails. Each is clearly labelled with either ‘Tip’ or ‘Ring’. Takes all the fun out of ‘Insert Bingo’ though.
Ring = Return, so plug the ‘ring’ labelled connector into the output of the outboard compresser / graphic / gate that you’re inserting.
