Might want to consider the Analog Cases UNISON for Mantis for some increased protection!
The current Mantis bag is larger to fit the Decksaver more easily.
The updated bag was released a while ago so that should be the only one in stock. It's the Trans Mantis Express bag and has no graphics:Del wrote: ↑Tue Sep 08, 2020 6:05 pm
I've never tested this (nor had the problem, myself) but anecdotally from reading lots of other people's posts on this board, I have seen some folks say that this does potentially help. Most recent one was regarding Intellijel Metropolis. Why not try it out yourself, if you're experiencing issues, and then report back to us with the efficacy?toumpouris wrote: ↑Wed Sep 16, 2020 1:39 pmHi!
I have a tiptop Mantis case, and I do understand that the power its separated to 3 zones, 3 x 1A each.
I was wondering if is worth separating audio modules (vca, LPG, output module) to their own zone cause sometimes I feel lfos leaking into vcas.
Would it help?
so I guess you pulled all your modules out (except 8) when Installing? Was kinda hoping to not have to do that.trickness wrote: ↑Thu Oct 17, 2019 10:33 amGot my Mantis brackets and installed them, about a 15 minute job. If you've put together anything by Ikea, you can do this easily. Hardest part was flipping the connected cases over with one bracket attached while not allowing them to spread, but I did it myself. Racking modules at the ends of the cases keeps the rails pretty well aligned - finished setup is super study & sano, looks good. Very inexpensive and cool way to get a 12u case with power - only downside it obviously it's no longer portable (although you could revert to two units in about 15 minutes) and the decksaver cover won't fit it. Also wish there was a way to use one power supply instead of 2, but again not a deal breaker. Really love this setup.
This looks like an equivalent product, available stateside:virtualpt wrote: ↑Fri Sep 18, 2020 10:12 amI looked at the Mantis brackets, but in the end I went for this slim riser from Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1 it is a perfect fit for dual Mantises, cheaper & more flexible/portable.IMG_0898.JPG
I know the instructions stress not doing so, and I'm not encouraging anyone to do this, but I did install mine loaded with modules anyway. The only problem I encountered was that the cases are significantly heavier when loaded up with modules, and I did need someone to help me to carefully flip the cases around in order to install the other bracket.
I went DIY with a bigger case. Then bought more stuff and ended up bringing the Mantises back out to create separate instruments. Fun x3
Thank you, Continuum. I appreciate the help. My current specs on modular grid are 610 mA -12V so even with a 30% margin of error I should still be safely under the 1.1 A limit. I suppose it was likely some kind of firmware glitch on the Popcorn... Hopefully it does not happen again.
Courtesy of continuum a few posts back...Del wrote: ↑Mon Nov 30, 2020 4:12 amI'm pretty sure that the Mantis has more than enough power for my needs but can anyone tell me where the "zones" on the Mantis are? The documentation says:
+12V@3A with split zone topology (1A per zone, 3 zone total)
It's not clear to me from looking at it where the divisions are.
