I built a high school piano lab that way. Raceway on the wall going up, trough just below the ceiling going back.

 

I've always thought that for a home or church, one could combine indirect lighting fixtures and cabling trough to keep cables both invisible and maintainable.

 

At my (rented) house, the solution is the opposite: there's room between the carpet and the baseboard heaters to hide several cables for across-room runs

Working through a similar need. I was planning to run conduit inside the wall (3" maybe) , with some 'blank outlets' (don't know the exact name in english) that can use as entry points at strategic places. I did this for my home theater at home and worked pretty well. The other idea was do some troughs running along the wall and through the floor, with some easily removable plates.

 

This is what I mean for blank outlets:

I also love the "blank outlet idea"..., inspired by Paul Thomson's studio tour:

at 3:35 he shows closer.

 

I just dont know exacttly where to start, hardware wise...

In the future, when the tech becomes more affordable, many small studios will start to use Dante or other Ethernet networks for this sort of thing, and run single CAT6 cables rather than snakes. Right now it's not practical for small setups, though.

Snakes along the baseboard and breakout boxen strategically placed.

Moe, I understand this works if you know exactly what you want (number of audio cables, midi cables, whatever), but not if you want the flexibility to run different cables. Or am I missing something?

If I had a 24 input DAW interface, I would probably run an 10 channel box to one wall, another to the opposite wall, and the remaining inputs would service rack gear on the console. Or something like that.

 

I would run power separately. Midi is a complication. Unless you have a central midi patch bay, it's going to get messy sometimes.
