When using the ToolMod mixing console with a DAW, extensive wiring is usually necessary if the single module connector panels are installed. As an alternative we offer complete backplanes for 8 channels and for 4 channels. The picture shows the 8 channel backplane with 25-pin D-subs for DAW send and return, TRS jacks for the insert I/O's and XLR connectors for the mic and line inputs. These backplanes break out the connection of the single channels into 25-pin D-subs that allow direct connection with standard multicore cables that are commonly available to DAW's with the common 'Tascam' pinout. XLR connectors for the external pre-amps and TRS connectors for the inserts complete these backplanes. There are also patch-bay versions that use 25-pin d-subs also for the inserts.
The 4 channel backplanes are best suited for use with stereo input modules. The 25-pin D-subs for the DAW connection are arranged in the way that 4 stereo channels match to 8 D/A and A/D converter inputs and outputs. Of course these panels can also be used with mono modules. Patch-bay versions of these backplanes are available as well.

Master Connector Panel
The master connector panel is mandatory and includes all master inputs and outputs, the inputs and outputs of the monitor, and the playback/talkback module, and the power supply connectors. Power Outputs in standard ToolMod pinout allow connecting ToolMod Pro Audio Frames to the console's power supply unit as well.
