This is interesting - all my 45 year career I have been taught and
adhered to the practice of red is right, and no matter what the colors,
the lighter one is left and the darker (or redder) right: gray/white.
black/red. etc. The only time I ever see red as left is with Nagras and
the Shure stereo mic splitter.

Never seen a link between nautical colors and audio.

Anyone have links to some history on this? Is there and AES "white"
paper on it? As I teach some people audio I need to know...

red =3D right has been my mantram for 40 years!
