After much thought, this is how it’s ended up, and I’m half way there, I thought there’s no point in replicating what a I have in another format, so this is how it looks when I don’t compromise, it’s a sort of hybrid digital semi-Buchla vibe, and unlike my previous rack, all the modules are available now.

Take us through it, mate. I have no idea what any of those things do!

(FWIW I have a handful of very simple modules on order and a Cre8audio NiftyCASE) - part of my 'Frankensynth'!)

Wow, zero room for expansion there. Given your predilection for changing your mind, perhaps 9U would be a better idea? Or are you planning on stacking a skiff on top?

Beginning of the end! :D

Do make a more detailed thread, definitely want to hear more!

Sorry folks, been up a Willow tree with a chain saw all day, I feel I can concentrate now.
Yes, irs a chaos box, really, chaos comes from the Jupiter Storm and Noise Swash, which are further modulated by the sample and hold and random modules, Maths provides added oscillators, and two LFO's/attenuators for me.
The Kermit is very special, I played a gig once where it was my only oscillator, truly mind blowing.
I think the rest is sort of self explanatory, I was tempted by those Behringer 2500 modules, especially the random S&H module, but they are heavy on real estate,
I’ll try and post a pic at some point, of the actual rack, and see if it turns out like it is now!

I can’t move forward with this at all, I’ve decided on a Mantis case, gives me more options for positioning, but they just aren’t available for weeks, in the colour I want, also the modules, Behringer are quoting August, lots of things seem to be held up at the moment, it’s very frustrating.,

I clicked and got the message: "Invalid rack".
There's probably a joke in there about plastic surgery and bras.

Delivery date for my 2500 system is August. No problem - I'll go write some tunes until it arrives. I've lived without it until now! :lol:

Yeah, I’ll post another link, I’ve made a few changes, owing to short supply of Euro at the moment.

Elf, hold fire, I’m not getting good reports about these modules, first off the System 100 oscillators tuning was bad, now I’m hearing about the 2500 modules being poorly screened, humming.
I’m sure these are early run issues, but it doesn’t inspire confidence, here’s hoping.
I’m giving up right now, I can’t seem to buy anything new that I need.

That's OK. I'll try them out and make my own decision. If they're not up to my standards then back they will go. I don't mind a little hum and noise. :D

Yes, I’ve specced a Berry System 100 oscillator in my rack, I’ll see how that goes, if and when I get it.
I’m putting all my modules in a box in storage for awhile, I just can’t get anything I want, I’ll wait until the market gets back to normal.

Just had a really quick reply from Tip Top, looks like their cases are coming in mid April, at least they got back to me.
