AudioJog Pro 8 review from Guitar & Bass Magazine

CableJog
AudioJog Pro 8

Working in the Audio industry means troubleshoting – and any musician or sound engineer knows to check the cables first. The usual method is subsititution… but what if the cable you’re swaping in is also faulty, or more than one cable doesn’t work? It’s easy to waste precious hours finding out.
You can use a multimeter, but it’s fiddly, especially when you have to hold both ends of the cable and the multimeter probes simultaneously.

The AudioJoG Pro 8 could be a life saver. Plug one end of the cable into Local and the other into Remote, switch on, and the LED will tell you if there is continuity between the various pins and terminals.
Cables you can test are 3,4,5 and 6 pin XLR, stereo and mono ¼” and mini jack, bantam, 4 and 8 pole Speakon, 3, 5 and 8 pole DIN, phono, BNC, Ethernet and USB. Pressing the Test button
scrolls through the LED display to test each connection. Alternatively, store the cable configuration into the Pro 8’s memory to test similar cables automatically.

VERDICT

If you only need to test audio cables the Pro 8 is maybe a little over the top, and there are
cheaper alternatives available, but nothing we know is as comprehensive and the USB
and Ethernet options reflect the computer music era.
