Are skiffs a thing in 5U?

Seems like I don't really see them in people's "post your pics" posts.

Seems like the modules are getting slim enough these days to make skiffs a thing. Dunno if we have the sort of modules that one would put into a skiff.
Joysticks, touchy stuff. I'd love for Soundmachines to bring their LP1 and LS1 to 5U.

Short anser is yes.

Here are a couple pictures of our skiff:

That's pretty rad. How shallow can those get? I'm not entirely sure how shallow we can get in 5U at all!
Why is the joystick not in there!? I just want a box of joysticks and touchplanes!

All you need is adaptor cables to use a Eurorack skiff with your 5U rig. If it is going to be another cabinet anyway, why not?

Something like this will work in front of any rig that patches if you have a converter module, format jumbler, or converter cables.

Yeah, I have the stuff to make a Euro skiff. . . . but since I decided to move away from the euro stuff, I don't even like looking at it. Hah! It's dumb, I know but I'm a "5U or bust" guy now! seriously, i just don't get it

synthesizers.com makes a good selection of MU touchy-feely controller modules, shown vertically down the left side of this page:

https://synthesizers.com/controllers.html

And they make three different types of skiff-ish MU cabinets as well:

https://synthesizers.com/qcb124.html

and

https://synthesizers.com/box11cabinets.html

and

https://synthesizers.com/tb22.html

(The last one isn't available as an empty cabinet yet, currently only available as a pre-built system).

boothnavy: Very Nice, Tony!

ersatzplanet: Because that would be cheating?

Other Moo skiffs (troughs?):

Synthesizers.com 11-space box11 (pretty shallow), and 1/2/4-space box1, box2 and box4 (even shallower... I have a box2 and 4 bolted together making kind of a box6, I guess).

Moon Modular has their tabletop cases ranging from a few spaces to ten, I think... they seem to be deeper and angled (if I recall) like the AC.

I have three Moon cases now: 500RP (two eight-space full-height rows and one CP row), a mighty 500P Moog-style tolex portable cabinet (P-Cab), and an older 'R2' (like the RP without the CP row).

I've used the R2 as a 'boat' on its back with power coming in through a dotcom DC interface module on the front (warning: some moo modules will not fit between the rails of the Moon cases I have... don't know the clearance on the tabletops).

More 'skiffy' than 'skiff,' I think... people use dotcom portable cabinets on their backs, too (the cabs, not the people... but?)... I'm not a fan of the covering, the wider-than-tall thing, in-between depth or module recess in use, though.

All that said, it wouldn't be hard to make exactly what you want/need... that's what I do for my racks, replacement vintage cases, etc.

For what it's worth GRP Synthesizer ship their R24 sequencer and A2 synthesizer in a handsome powered "skiff" but unfortunately the don't sell the case separately.




I had put my R24 sequencer into another case so I re-purposed the nice GRP case to use as a skiff for some 5U modules:


coyoteous
Yeah, that case still makes me go 'ah,' even empty... didn't register to me before that they had a whole synthesizer in the same format/case (sexy... note to self: no... do not go look at that stuff... do not!).
EPTC
I love those Moon cases. I'd call them 5U skiffs.
