Nice idea. Is it easy to drill the holes? I'd say the metal bends easily, doesn't it?

It does bend for sure. I supported it with wood blocks and cardboard, and used the original panel from the mult as a drill template. It was pretty easy. Not much clearance though, so you have to be careful there.

Got it, thanks. So, you mounted a multiple module by removing its original faceplate? I thought you just soldered some plugs together.

You could totally do that, but I was lazy and had a 2hp mult handy. If you solder your own you’ll need it to be no deeper than 16mm or so, or you’ll have clearance issues with the power supply.

Yes, I've used Adafruit 5' extension cables without any problems.

thanks for the info! i know that it should be working fine and i already bought a longer dc cable for guitar pedals (waiting for the last module to put in the pod), but its just nice to get some feedback

this could also be quite handy

Yep, I actually have several of those. Definitely handy.

Has anyone fit a Doepfer SEM filter into a PodX? It seems like the depth is exactly the same (55mm) which is cutting it pretty close.

Just received a pair of powered Pod64x this week to re-home my Pittsburgh Modular VRL in a more portable format. Everything works, but I'm fairly disappointed by the power supply in them.

* It needs way more standoffs to support the bus board! Plugging into some of the shrouded headers causes the bus board to bend horribly. Not cool. Kinda feels half-assed TBH
* Like almost every Euro case I've owned, it also needs more power headers. That 6hp space is empty because I ran out of connectors. Time to get the crimpers out again. It's not as if I'm using tons of tiny modules...

I have that filter. Here it is in a Pod64X:

There's enough room to slide the connector of one of the Pittsburgh Modular "patch noodles" underneath, so if you needed to run a ribbon cable under the module it would be ok.

Also I need to do some dusting. Urgh.
