How can studio wiring just suddenly go bad?
Was in the studio last night working on some after hours recording and suddenly both my audio monitors started buzzing...like a grounding problem.
So after two hours of methodically diagnosing I isolated it to the reference speaker cables. The old cables were custom built cables that we installed in 1992. They've been through a couple of moves since then but were working fine up to last night. Today am changing both speaker cables out with new Mogami cables. But still wondering; how is it that stationary wiring just suddenly goes south? I understand something like a guitar cable malfunctioning due to constantly being coiled and uncoiled, etc...but stationary studio wiring? It's a mystery.
If musicians ran the world there would be no wars...just an occasional battle of the bands.
