in mine i have 2 multiples, 2 jack/minijack/phono converters, an 8008 kick drum, an asr, a dual real ring mod and a psycho lfo.
Luka
especially since i want some of those modules tom!

Ok here's another one - see if you can spot the silly...



I guess I forget things when it comes to minijacks - I'd initially had it with banana-to-minijack so when I changed it all to minijack I totally overlooked the fact that a 2-way-minijack-mult wasn't going to be the most useful tool!

Is that mine?

what are the dimensions of the ears?
oozitron
Total rack width = 19"
Five modules (5x3") = 15"
So rack ears are 2" wide
And 3u (5.25") tall

But of course not all of that is useable...

The usable width of a Frac ear (if you don't want to cut up your rack) is approximately half of 1FU.

The thickness of the 2 layers is another concern.
Not all components can be mounted through both layers.
Switches that I have used will make it through both layers without a problem.
3.5mm jacks, however, may require you to cut out a section of the interior panel (or drill larger holes in the interior panel).
This butchering won't be visible from the front with the black ears on.
If you don't hack too much, it shouldn't compromise the structural integrity of the rack.
Luka
thanks

im not using a full frame
i just have some aluminium angle that i will bolt to the ears
