The EWI MTIS series snake is a professional quality insert snake. This snake is typically used to loop processing equipment like compressors and EQ's through a mixing console.
On the XLR breakout fantail, each XLR connector is labeled with the channel number and designated as wired to the Tip or Ring of the 1/4" TRS connector on the other fantail. Additionally, the Tip wired FXLR connectors are identified with a black compression nut on the connector and the Ring wired MXLR connectors are identified with a red compression nut on the connector.
The pin connections are:
TRS Tip - Pin 2 FXLR
TRS Ring - Pin 2 MXLR
TRS Sleeve - Pins 1 & 3 MXLR and FXLR
Since the channel numbers of each fantail are labeled down the fantail and color coded to groups, this allows the user to identify the placement of the XLR connectors in an effects rack without removing the connectors from the panel jacks on the processing equipment.
The cable it's self is constructed with 99.98% pure 22ga. high strand count copper conductors. The connectors are all EWI P292S-BKG (TRS), ES3FB-GDP (FXLR) and ES3MB-GDP (MXLR) models.
