<<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:
black/red. etc. >>

I apprenticed nearly 35 years ago at Location Recording Service in
Burbank, working for people who had been in the industry for at least
30 more years, & the in-house standard there was Left =3D Blue, Right =3D =

Red. I believe it is something which AES has never weighed in on, but
is rather a tacit convention.
I use the colored XLR boots available with Neutrik connectors to
follow this color code, or colored tape with heat shrink for
Switchcraft connectors.
