a good acoustic guitar stand will make any rack slanted. Something I wish I'd figured out a few years ago.


So true. My strat stand is permanently assigned to this duty. Just the right angle but a bit shaky. Acoustic stand with longer prongs would be better, thanks for the tip!

if you pick the right one you could still add a lid and use 2 latch locks on either side, maybe


True, good point. My rails are recessed from the front face though, so I'd have to do some fancy woodworking to get a completely closed fit.

I went the route of buying an inexpensive Mixer case and some angle aluminum and mounted rails on it to make this:



The 10U case was only $100. I should have went the extra cost to $110 for the 12U version though.
You can stand them on end with a little front support. This is provided on the 10U version by a 2U panel mounted in the bottom 1U opening. Then you get the "Arp 2600" style slanted case:

My Euro setup will soon be comprised of 3 Monorocket cases, functioning as a single unit; a Gemini (slanted), a Base90 (slanted + flat), and a skiff (flat).


Should cover most of the bases!

I always get questions about that one. Basically I use a old iPhone with a bunch of music apps on it. I have some Loopers and abstract sound generators and some background ambient music tracks on it and modify them on my rig. I made a module for it. Basically it is a panel with a hole in it that a iPhone dock sticks through and its line output is wired to some jacks. I intend to make some pre-amps on it soon and maybe a envelope follower or just merge it with parts of a Doepfer A-119 module (I use 2 with it now). The dock is powered by a iPhone car adaptor with its end cut off and wired to the power bus. Easy to make.
And before someone asks, if I made one to sell, it would have all the extra electronics but you would have to supply the dock. Apple wants too much royalties and other hassles to make the dock part. And to remote control the iPhone means special proprietary chips from Apple too so I wouldn't be going there either. Good use for those older modlels when you retire them. That one is a G1 iPhone for instance.

i chose a 9u with a slope from horizontal to nearly vertical. i do not regret the decision.



and i don't even have any touchplate controllers yet!


i got an aluminium case with almost the same shape as yours but the top row is completely vertical . it looks really badass but i feel that the angle makes the middle row very cluttered in wires and not easily accessible when fully patched .
i never had a straight case . i figure that two 6u straight cases would be awesome to carry around .

i also really like most of the 6u angled desktop designs
