Re: Raxxess Converta Rack vs. ???
This is what I plan to put in the rack case:
Emu XL7 (on top, where the mixer would normally go)
MOTU MIDI Express 128
Raxxess Drawer (4 spaces - for storing the
Micromodular, EH16, their power adapters, power strip,
cables, manuals for MOTU units, etc.)
That's pretty much it, though I may add a Furman Power
Conditioner at some point in the future.
I'm not a solo looper, actually. I'm the guy in our
band who loops the bassist, manipulates our
violinist's signal, and throws in some synth on
This Gator case looks to be about $30 cheaper than its
SKB competition (SKB Mini Gig Rig).
