SYNTHRACKS ‘Peter’ Eurorack case/enclosure

A new strand of a British company is now making Eurorack cabinets with a classic look that will tempt any synthesist. Dave Gale examines the casing…

Some years ago, I became aware of a company called ‘Studioracks’, which had become highly established and respected for building all sorts of very fine rack systems for studios, as well as bespoke studio furniture. So it came as no surprise to learn that the people behind this outfit had embarked on the next phase of its studio furniture journey, with the development of a new branch called ‘Synthracks’.

The Eurorack concept has pretty much established itself as the dominant modular format, and that is reflected in this first offering from Synthracks, in the shape of the ‘Peter’ cabinet enclosure. Named in reverence to the many synth composers who share the same name, the ‘Peter’ is available in both 6u and 9u configurations (two or three rows), and a width of 104HP, making them perfectly compact, and suitable for placing on a small worktop, possibly next to a DAW-based setup, on a desk. Unlike a ‘skiff’, these units have a sloping upright position, allowing a perfect user experience, as the modules face the user at a comfortable angle.
