When I looked out for solutions on how to carry along my modular synthesizer I noticed three options:
1. spend a lot of money for one of the (seldom) commercial solutions
2. put the stuff into a massive 19" rack which wouldn't fit onto my desk
3. build something for my own
I decided for the last option, got a used paramedic suitcase from ebay plus some accessories from the building center and spent a noon with taking apart my existing rack and assembling this piece of modular freedom.
Step 1: Getting the Parts
I already owned a small modular setup so i took apart my racks to get the 19" SB-rails, the power supply and busboards.
I planned a system of three 19" rows (3x3U) so the parts-list turned out as the following:
1x Transformer 220V to 15V
1x Power Supply for stabilized +12V and -12V voltages
6x 19" aluminium rails
6x 19" threaded strips
Wood stripe for the frame ( 80cm+ for a 3x3U, 6cm in depth)
4x square brackets to mount the frame in the suitcase
Bolts & nuts
So, let's hunt for the right suitcase
