This is a topic that has bothered me for a long time, and now I need to solve it as I have decided to finally get a patch bay rather than dig around in the back of my rack every time I need to make some changes! What is the deal with normalled vs. half-normalled? Nady lists "normalled, half-normalled and isolated"...Behringer lists (I'm not getting a Behringer, but I saw it in the catalog) "parallel, half-normalized, normalized and open", and then dbx lists "normalled and non-normalled". I am completely confused as to what these terms all mean and how they differ from one another. I talked to a buddy today that works at a music store, and he tried to explain it, and it made absolutely no sense. Can anyone explain this to me in plain English...I know this has to be fairly simple, but I am somehow missing the basics here... Thanks!
