The case has arrived. I'm very happy with this. It wasn't cheap, but this guy really knows his stuff and has created a truly fabulous piece of work.

It will hide the hateful PSU (a special request of mine) and make the whole thing just so much easier to home:

It will be a little while before I get around to putting the 2600 in here, but I'll drop another couple of photos when I do.

What’s the 12v socket for? Powering something else - say a keyboard?

That's the input for the external 12V PSU. I had my custom version made with the IEC socket added, and will be fixing the PSU inside the case, so I won't be using that socket.

That looks great! Will it house just the 2600? Or will it also hold the Eurorack modules as well?

It only takes the 2600 inside it, but it will have a disembowelled 2500 on top of it, with hedgehog bookends to hold the modules in place.

For a while I thought that I should have allowed for the 2500 modules, but I now feel I'm happier with keeping them separate - and I'm going to make them a standalone 2-tier synth in their own right.

But I've also had a third thought... ;)

It's pretty weak at the moment, I'm feeding it up until it looks like a good idea! ;) :mrgreen:
