Today, I sorted like-type cables into bins. I now have bins full of cables that I may or may not ever need again.
Microphone cables are always useful. They're in a big bin.
But I haven't used an insert cable in years. Nor any of the two bins of cable snakes of various sorts that are sitting on top of the mic locker. I don't actually have any AES/EBU connectors left in the studio, although I have a great many expensive cables that would handle the signal. And there are many, many SPDIF cables for the limited number of uses that I have remaining for them. Ditto the big bin of balanced patch cables, primarily one gender or the other of XLR to 1/4 inch.
Ah, well. The MIDI cables may come in handy soon. We'll see.
In any case, it's now possible to walk around without trying to trip over the things.
And if I need one, I'll be able to find it.
