Is there a 5U equivalent of the Doepfer Mini Case?

Author Is there a 5U equivalent of the Doepfer Mini Case?

If I wanted to house two 5U modules with no room for further expansion what would my options be? I'd like to put a Modcan Dual Quantizer and Clock in a small case to use with my Klee.

This is the Doepfer Mini Case: http://www.analoguehaven.com/doepfer/minicase/

Keep in mind that this would be 4U of modules. I would just contract a case with a local carpenter and install Bridechamber rails (you would have 6U of space and hence room for one more double-width module). Then just buy an MOTM-900 kit. They're very easy to assemble.

Thanks. I'll look into that.

That's 3U of modules, actually. The smallest case I am aware of is one listed by Moon on the noisebug site, which may actually just be a rack enclosure. The simplest/cheapest ready-made option would be rack rails, though they would only be 30% full. The best option would be building a small case yourself, as mentioned above.

Cheers,
Brian

He's right, I had the wrong image of the Modcan clock in my head.

sounds like a job for nice-racks.com
or you can buy my modcan rack for $125 shipped, since you know you're going to get more modcan anyway grin
(and the rack comes with its own power distro board)

Funny. Nice-racks built my dotcom style euro case and my Klee case and will be building a 9U euro case to house my loose Schroff racks. I guess I can ask him about this as well.

Is your rack an actual stand alone case or is it something that would need to go into a case...if you know what I mean?

There is a dearth of 5U cases. The only one I know of is the Dotcom 22- and 44-space cabinets, which can have MOTM rails installed. And... that's all she wrote.

Nice racks will do them... they even had a page dedicated to it for a time, but now it's a custom job. Bridechamber used to do 24U cabinets. That's what mine are. They're nice.

Bigger than the OP is looking for but MOS-LAB has a nice little 8U wide portable rack:

Of course I'm always pimping the EWI Tourcase racks! thumbs up

Actually, you could take one of their 2U high racks (or any ones for that matter) and stand it on end and make a special mounting rails in the middle so you could mount 4 1U MOTM, 2 1U and 1 2U MOTM or 2 2U MOTM.

The MOS-LAB stuff is sexy. Seems crazy to import a wood box from Europe to the US though.

That MOS-LAB case and modules does look very good! What voltage and power connectors do they use? I could not find this information on their site, but I love the Model 8A portable system!
Luka
go custom, so much more fun
not too hard

i built a few of these for some friends last year
