Need some blank panels but enjoying the feel of it. Trunk lines needed too but multiples in the middle, etc.

New configuration, with lower case in a rolling rack to make it easier to move around the studio. The SEM is hitching a ride.

Yes, I see a Boogie in there. Sweet! That one really starts to shine when you start mixing the outputs.
:tu:
Sooooo many option for the J.A.G. in your system. The mind boggles.

I'm curious how you power your system?

Yeah, out of phase outs & routing options on the Boogie... just started going with that ;o)

Can't wait to get my hands on the JAG!

Oh yeah, 8x PS500s and picked up a couple PS800s a while back (yet to be installed. Might save for portable rig)

btw, Thank you for the kind words everyone. It's been a longtime build and I'm enjoying it immensly.

Eight PS500 = 4A or 4000 mA. Figure maybe 50 mA per module = 80 modules. Mults need no power.

OK, someone count the modules.

BTW are the emoticons working?

Hopefully soon. Have plans to patch up something special, alongside some cool aerial fisheye cams. :hihi:

Woah, glad I accidentally landed on this page from a random google search for something else.

Dooood DJ DAB :yay:

I recently bought 60" vector rails and was looking for inspiration. That C64 with monitor is beyond cool. Do you record all that analog gear at crunchy 8bit on the c64? 8-)

60" vector rail from one of those smaller distributors is the way to go!
I think I bought from Gerber at $60 per 4 units.

The C64 is mostly for sequencing (Steinberg Pro-16) and adding some grit via Mssiah, Cynthcart, etc. 8-)
