Behringer just announced a Eurorack case (104HP).

Not sure of the quality, because I guess there's a reason for the high prices of most cases... But that one might finally decide me on building a small FX system !

Looks pretty decent. Doesn't look like it's got any openings anywhere for power cables etc, though I guess you could use one of the front-feeding power supplies (uZeus or similar) to keep things compact. Also I wonder if it can be opened to add extra sliding nuts—not that it's likely it'd fit more than 26 modules, but hey, good to have that option!

 

In terms of quality, not sure if I can really talk about that, as my current Euro setup is just some Elby Designs rails screwed into a little box I found at Savers, haha. Works well though!

just bought a dewalt ds779, but it weighs almost 60 pounds and is really awkward to carry. the weight is always away from the body. can't carry in the strike zone. it's a really nice saw and would probably do everything i would ever need, but it is $350 and I feel like i could save some money for my studio and get a cheaper saw...

Tape a cheap fan to it in order to do FM synthesis.

Was gonna say "that's not particularly cheap for some rails and and enclosing", but looking over the other cases Thomann has available, it turns out that it is. Damn ...

 

Still: sliding nuts.

i found the arturia rack to be entirely affordable. or maybe it was just the convenience of a local store having it in stock and being able to impulse order it in the middle of the night and have it home delivered. either way, happy with the arturia rackbrute :-)

Yeah the rackbrute is great value. I only went the custom/DIY option because low cost wins out over convenience for me, and because I knew I'd end up wanting to add a 1U row :P

I just gassed out hard and swapped some modules for a lindell 5u case of 1176 and pultec eqs. I was meant to get cash for a set of sennheiser hd650s, fucked it though

What’s that one semi modular drum machine that uses alligator clips? Anyone heard anything on it?

Anyone ever used a "Music from outer space" Noise Toast?

I think a semi-modular standalone synth like this would be the next evolution in my setup.

 

(when my GAS ban is lifted in June :D)

 

Seems a very reasonable price at £145.00 plus carriage from Italy (currently on Reverb)

The markup on Sennheiser at Guitar Center is something like 60%-70% so make a friend at Guitar Center and you can get a brand new pair for around $225, that's the only way I was able to do it. All the GC owned brands are about the same, too, so you can get some pretty decent (some of the Sterling mics are pretty good for the price even before the discount), for good prices that way.


What I'm getting at is you made the right move, there are more opportunities to get a good price on headphones than to get a pile of good EQs.




I haven't tried an MFOS synth but I used to flow his web site a lit and have his book and back then at least they weren't directly compatible with Eurorack AFAIK. Semimodulars are cool though, they're kind of my ideal, probably because I've always wished for an Arp 2600.
