Euro joins the party!

As mentioned in the previous post, I have tradionally forgone the eurorack modular format - not for lack of enticing module options, but due to the sheer cost of the real estate and power. The availability of $35 Schroff racks and willingness to wire up a commercially available DC power supply have solved this, and I'm really excited to say that the Eurorack format has now joined up with my frac stuff, creating even more of a monster synth.

The rest of my euro setup consists of two lonely skeletons, sitting beneath a desk waiting for the day they'll be needed...



So I've got 3400ma of Euro power, and three racks to build up in. And the total cost of this infastructure was literally almost nothing - a fraction of the price of a single powered Doepfer frame. Thanks eBay guy!! Let the euro madness begin....

Straight pimpin'.

You'll have an AFG in no time. And you'll need the room for your Euro Metasonix modules!
