Here is my foray back into 5U! A portable Box 11 setup!

I bought the case from Rondo Music (through Amazon, great way to use my gift card from Christmas!), and the Box 11 fits almost perfectly both for the width and height. There is extra room underneath to carry the power supply, cables etc, as well as for stomp boxes to use with the CGS 60 from LWSS. Unfortunately, my Walking Stick Ribbon Controller is too long to fit in there as well!

I feel like you should send that Box11 pic to Roger. That case style is awesome. Could you measure the dimensions of the storage space? I love the planets panels, too. Cool system.

I have thought about it, but out of 9 modules currently in the case, only 3 are from Synthesizers.com, and the power supply is from another vendor as well.

Here is a shot of the entire "studio":



Wonderful compliment of instruments. What brand of piano is that? Is that considered a spinet? Doesn't that little KARP sound sweet? Also what's next to the Moog 'modules'? A Microbrute?
Sorry, I missed this. I'm not home right now,but I think the piano is a Viscount - it's a digital that I bought almost 20 years ago. At the time Rick Wakeman was advertising the brand.... I do have a little Baldwin spinet that I bought for $100. It lives in my living room and I like much more than the stupid digital...

I do love the Karp and wish I could afford the big brother! Hopefully they'll come out with a mini version of the 2600...

Yes, good eye. That is Microbrute up next to the Moog "modules".

Awesome setup! I gather that you don't often (or ever) change your Mellotron 400's tape frames.

One of the last Lamond cases arrived at the weekend. Finally got the Modcan in its own house.
Bottom blank panel will have some jacks in it and link up to a 96io interface I have to run Silent Way through. Not sure of the top one. Maybe studio logo. Any ideas?
Also, if you were looking to get rid of a 58B that would be super cool of you! And maybe something non-logic for the 1u gap.

Hi, folks. I've been mostly lurking for the last several months as I've built up my synth and my skills. It's been very educational learning from all of you. I've been wanting a modular since reading the old Sound On Sound synth secrets articles, and here's my system as it stands today. Yes, I probably should grow it slower. I did, however, take a week of vacation to put myself through 'synth school,' much of which was spent emulating what you fine folks have posted here and on YouTube.

Wow. Beautiful system 👍

This is what I have so far...
The big case was stuck at my wifes work for a couple months so I ended up getting a moon modular case until we were able to go get it.

I don’t know how to rotate photos with the new site. Sorry

the 5u Stroh lives! cleaned up, new case, new rails, and a little bling.
admit the power supply upgrade ran afoul of quarantine parts access difficulties (ok, and about 40 other projects), but it's getting there...

I sometimes wonder if I picked the wrong format for such a small workspace
