I am a big fan of having my entire Mixbay fully normalled. This way I can setup the routing schemes I use most and alleviate the use of patch cables, but still retain the ultimate flexibility to route anything to anywhere at anytime.
That being said, if you want to do any multing you'll need to setup those points to be half-normalled.
The great thing about the Mixbay is that you can change both the normal and ground configurations per port pair (that means 96 different configurations are possible as there are 192 points on the bay). You also don't need to unplug any gear in order to change these switches. So, you can start off one way and try something else the next without any hassle.
I encourage you to visit the product page where there is an Excel spreadsheet for laying everything out, and a very detailed PDF manual available that addresses these types of concerns.
Here's a link:
My main snake is 16 channels, so I would like to remove the XLR's and wire DB25 for connection to Mixbay. Can you recommend a DB25 connector that is good for custom work?
Then I'll be ready to roll.
Control Room to Live Room Wall Plates = DB25
Converters to Mixbay = DB25
Mixbay to gear = DB25->XLR (or whatever the gear requires)
Live Room Wall Plates to Microphones and Headphone Systems = DB25->XLR
The most important thing is to get the Mixbay into your studio and start figuring out what wiring schemes work best for your environment.
