    I know Rode have a set that clip over a mic cable plug to easily identify which input is for which mic . But they only do them in 4 colours and I want 4 more .
    Looks like Neutrik do some but they are for their smaller plugs .
    Anything else out there?

    Dunno if this would help:

    I'm rather routing-challenged and after years of taping colored plastic tape on my plain black XLR cables, I purchased XLR cables on ebay that are made with cable that has colored jackets. They're great - the mic stand with the yellow or orange or green or whatever cable is instantly identifiable at the board by the color of the cable at the input.

    There's plenny on there - after much research, I chose a seller called "yovus". Good quality, decent cost, and good choices/assortment. I have a good dozen now.
    IIRC, they make regular length ones, patch- and gear-connection lengths, R/angle, yada...even TS and TRS cables/patches...

    Thing is I have all the cables I need . But you've given me an idea to put a bit of shrink wrap at each end

    At the time, I went with something like this...but heat-shrink would be way better.

    Yeah done the tape years ago. You end up with a sticky mess after a while .
