I need a little help if you may...ok here goes
I'm currently building a home studio and I'm worried about the distance between the mics in the cellar live room and 2 the pre-amps in the attic control room.
The live room is soundproofed and it has a separate vocal booth but the multi-core cable has to be 23m to reach the attic.
Now I have not done the wiring yet and I have a small budget of about £350 to spend on just the 12 way multi-core and whatever else is needed to ensure a healthy signal on all mics. I have good mic pre-amps and some decent mics already see (bottom of post) for details.
So my question.
Is 23m too long for a mic to push the signal to the pre-amp. If it is what should I buy to rectify the problem. I asked my friend at YTV for his opinion and he said you should be OK with 23m as long as the multi-core is double screened. But he seemed a little unsure.
I hope someone can shed some light, I'm hoping just good quality multicore cable will do the trick.
