Hosa Technology Announces Hopscotch Patch Cables

Unique pigtail patch point ideal for modular synths

Buena Park, CA, February 2017 — Hosa Technology, Inc., the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce the CMM-500Y Series Hopscotch Patch Cables. Designed with modular synthesizers in mind, the new CMM-500Y Series features a unique pigtail patch point that enables users to split a signal at its output for additional versatility.

Using patch cables, audio signals can “jump” from one device to another. This is most noticeable in modular synthesizers, where signals travel in and out of modules multiple times. Hosa’s Hopscotch Patch Cables each include a short pigtail with a female 3.5 mm TS jack at one end of the cable. This jack makes it possible to take a signal that has already been patched elsewhere and send it along a completely new path. The pigtail design moves the jack far enough away from the connector—where space is limited—but close enough to identify the output to which it is connected.

Featuring Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors, flexible spiral shielding, and nickel-plated plugs, Hopscotch Patch Cables are manufactured to meet the needs of today’s electronic musicians. The series utilizes slim plugs that make it possible to use in any modular synthesizer rig without interfering with other cables or controls. The combination of high-quality components and Hosa’s world-class workmanship results in outstanding cables that provide years of exceptional performance.

Hopscotch Patch Cables are color-coded by length to easily identify the cable needed prior to making the next patch. CMM-545Y consists of five yellow, 1.5-foot (45 cm) cables. For an assortment of lengths, the CMM-500Y-MIX includes one of each of the following cables: red 6-inch (15 cm), orange 1-foot (30 cm), yellow 1.5-foot (45 cm), green 2-foot (60 cm), and blue 3-foot (90 cm).

Hosa Technology’s Product Manager, Jose Gonzalez, commented on their latest release, “Modular synthesizers provide multiple fun and exciting ways to manipulate sound. Hosa’s new Hopscotch Patch Cables minimize patching limitations and make it easier to implement new sonic ideas instantly.” He continued, “We’re confident the superior construction, slim housing, and unique pigtail patch point will make Hopscotch Patch Cables must-have options in modular synth rigs everywhere.”

Hosa’s Hopscotch Patch Cables are available now. MSRP for each of the two options is $34.95.

Hosa Technology Announces Pro Headphone Cables

A reliable solution for pro-audio headphones and gear

Buena Park, CA, January 2017 — Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for the modern musician, is pleased to introduce the latest additions to the highly regarded Hosa Pro line. The new Hosa Pro Headphone Cables bring next-level durability to the final link in the audio reproduction chain. Whether it’s replacing a cable or extending the reach of a favorite set of headphones, Hosa Pro Headphone Cables deliver the most reliable connection possible.

Like all Hosa products, Hosa Pro Headphone Cables rely on quality components. And like the rest of the Hosa Pro interconnects, Hosa Pro Headphone Cables start with 24 AWG Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) conductors for enhanced signal clarity and 90% OFC spiral shields for superior signal-to-noise ratio. Each cable sports REAN connectors by Neutrik AG—the industry’s most trusted connector manufacturer—for efficient signal transfer and durability. These materials, combined with Hosa’s world-class workmanship, result in remarkable interconnects designed to provide exceptional audio performance for many years.

The Hosa Pro Headphone Cable line is one of Hosa’s most comprehensive introductions, consisting of five different configurations in various length options. The HMM Series Pro Stereo Interconnect is designed to hook up pro-audio headphones equipped with a mini stereo input to source audio equipment with a mini stereo output. For headphones without removable cables, the rest of the line is comprised of extension cables in every combination of 3.5 mm and 1/4-inch connections. They provide additional reach between headphones and their audio source for any application from lifestyle use to personal monitoring during rigorous recording sessions.

Hosa Technology’s Product Manager, Jose Gonzalez, commented on the company’s latest introduction, “A great set of headphones is vital during both casual listening and critical tracking sessions, and the included cables don’t always complement the headphones they are paired with.” He continued, “Hosa Pro Headphone Cables deliver the higher degree of security and audio quality our customers desire and expect Hosa to provide for any application. We are confident this line will become a go-to solution for anyone looking to get the most out of their headphones.”

Hosa Pro Headphone Cables are available now. The HMM Pro Stereo Interconnect is offered in 3-, 5-, 10-, and 15-foot lengths.
