Another Blacet rack question.
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Fractional Rack Modules  
Author Another Blacet rack question.
D/A A/D
How deep is a blacet frac rack with a PS500 attached?
Cat-A-Tonic
A Frac rack is 7"deep
A PS500 is 2.5" deep

If you choose your module placement carefully then you can mount the PS500 to the inside of the Frac rack.
You will need to get longer screws though.

Thanks man, I didn't know it could be mounted inside the case... It would probably fit behind the metalbox matrix mixer I plan to get.

You're probably right.
The PS500 fits perfectly behind a Hex Zone.
The left half of the Metal Box Divider & Logic sits nicely beside that
(even though the PCB on that is one of the longest).

You do have to keep in mind the plug on the side of the PS500,
but mounting inside the rack maximizes the possibility of portable casing.

Other modules that fit happily in front of the PS500 (interior mount) are:
Blacet's Dual Lin VCA, Window Comparator, I think Blacet may be trending toward's more shallow mods in the future.
MetalBox/CGS Digital Noise... probably some other MetalBox stuff too..
Wiard 1200 mods are all super shallow...
The Plague Bearer doesn't look all that deep...
...I'm sure I'm forgetting some other commercial Frac mods...
and we can't forget about DIY!
I'm sure Ian Fritz would be right up your alley. 8)

I already have a miniwave, and I am planning to get a matrix mixer and a noise ring. That leaves me with 2 spaces left.
Cat-A-Tonic
If you are only going to have one or two racks of Frac then the Matrix Mixer, and the Noise Ring should have you covered for PSU space.

Yup. Cool, thanks!
Cat-A-Tonic
With only 2 spaces left it is a tough call...
You definitely want something that isn't available in Euroland.
I'd say Binary Zone, Window Comparator, or the soon to be OOP Klangwerk...
or a Wiard filter...
or, or, or...
D/A A/D
The binary zone looks uber tempting, but my system lacks a "real" vcf (well one without vactrols). So a Borg may be a nice option.

Borg has vactrols! hihi (but it's freaking awesome)

See my love of vactrols is so abiding that I am subconsciously drawn to them...

Yes I totally understand - I'm the same way! w00t
