Last fall I did a multitrack recording of my friends band playing live. So I went to order a 100' 16-channel stage snake. Unfortunately at time of purchase I was down to the wire with time and bought the only one I could get which was the horizon 100' 16/4 stage series. Did the recording and the snake seemed to work just fine. So today I'm getting ready for my next big recording project, which will be setting up in a cabin in the woods to record an album with a singer/songwritter. Upon going through my gear I opened a male end housing of an xlr plug on both a channel on the snake and on one of my standard mic cables. I couldn't help but be disturbed by the difference in the wires. The snake has like three little wires total for each channel. The mic cable has like 2 sets of two and then another for a total of like 5 wires running though the cable. I know I bought the price point snake but is it common for snakes to have less wires than mic cables? Am I putting myself at a loss if I record through the snake? If so, would it be possible to daisy chain mic cables together for longer runs? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
