24-Channel XLR Splitter...

    Hello!

    I'm looking to split my snake! Really though, we have a little over 24 channels coming into our FOH mix via a really nice snake w/ floor pockets. That is working very well....However, now we may want to split those 24 channels to a recording mix as well. I've checked some of the prices and see split snakes around $750-1000 for a decent one, but we don't really need a snake. We just need to plug the existing snake into a splitter box and then we'll take XLRs out of the splitter, one set to the FOH mix (Maybe 5') and one set to the recording mix (Again 5').

    So, I guess I just need a big black box with 24ins and 48 outs. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    It ain't exactly cheap for 24 channels, but it's the only way to go:

    ART makes similar products which are likely much more affordable:

    I would consider them to be quite useful.

    Of course, you need the extra cabling to go along with them too, which ain't cheap...

    Whirlwind also makes one http://www.whirlwindusa.com/split.html

    No idea about the cost though.
