Nice pics. What's under the shrink tubing on the mic cables?
When I came home late last night.....
The wife left a note on the fridge:
"It's not working, I can't take it anymore!!
Gone to stay with my Mother."
I opened the fridge, the light came on, and the beer was cold.........
What the hell is she talking about??????

It serves three purposes:
1) Strain relief
2) Identification (if I see shrink wrap on a cable, I know it's mine)
3) Type: red=mic, green=DMX.

Got it, in a few of the pics I thought there was something under it.

Really? Nothing personal, but doesn't look so great on camera. Black (or nothing) is better on that end. ID the other end. No need for strain relief on a mic cable, at least not in my decades of experience. No one sees the DMX cable on stage.

I use the Neutrik color ID rings on mine and concur with soundguy. The shrink wrap looks a little fugly like that. Good cable and good connectors are not as much a problem on strain issues so 1 is not a huge deal to me, a more discreet piece of shrink tubing would take care of 2 and 3 as well while looking better.
http://softwareaudioconsole.wikidot.com The start of a wiki. It's slow going and there's a ton of info that should be in there yet.
Biggest item is the Command Reference on how to do most actions within SAC. It's 90% of what you need for UI proficiency.
