October 3, 2023

Eurorack modular synthesizers became my instrument of choice 10 years ago. During this time I have used Doepfer cases, a portable Sub:Modular Shadow case and a Make Noise Skiff for the road. While the Doepfer cases gave me clean power for my analogue filters and oscillators, their vertical orientation was not my preferred way of playing the instrument. Over the years, I have found that the way I set up my portable cases is the way I like to perform movements, but the power provided caused humming and module malfunctions. Norwegian console maker Tore Seem‘s design and Sam Barker’s tutorial on building a custom console inspired me to build one myself for my studio.

It has two isolated power inputs – one for my analogue modules, powered by Doepfer’s linear PSU2, and it’s successor PSU3 for the digital modules. It has 168hp rails from Gietec, laser cut aluminium sides and I cut the plywood myself. If you have any questions about this build, feel free to get in touch.
