Yup, it's something I've wanting to do for a longtime. Basically it has din sync in/out options, midi in/out, tape in/out (for multitrack sync recording and playback) and a SD card floppy emulator... Using Mssiah and Steinberg Pro-16 w/ Card 32. The other panel has audio ins/outs and controls over the SID chip (might add vactrol cv over pots too, at some point). Also, last year I built a bunch of midi to gate, trigger and cv builds so the C64 will interface with those too. Fun times...

Modified / enlarged the case to migrate over to 60" vector rails.

So far... I might be crazy.

Luckily, it'll take a while. :hyper: Currently, I can fill 4 rows (5 if I fill one w/ Eurocrack) out of 8 available.

Nice! Are you using sliding nuts or threaded strip in those?

Do you find them difficult to use? I imagine it's hard to get the nuts in the right place (queue dirty joke here!).

Not terribly difficult but not as easy as Frac standard, of course.
