Sturdy, portable and good-looking Eurorack case

Robrecht, 12.04.2018
This is a sturdy and portable case and a great new Eurorack option.

I have no worries about it being dented or chipped during transport. It's basically one big metal shell, so my modules are safe. The wooden sides look nice, even though they're actually laminated fibreboard. I like the fact that the case is suspended in the air, it makes the whole setup look less heavy and massive than most cases. And you can angle it any way you like.

The aluminum bracket is light but feels dependable, and the hinges are tough. No qualms about carrying the whole assembly with it.

However, folding two cases shut while patched is not as self-evident as it seems. There's quite a bit of clearance thanks to those red translucent fold-out spacers (and in any case the bracket hinges stop turning at about the same distance), but if you have dense modules in the top and bottom case with the patch points lined up, any patch cables with a stiff base plugged into them will be in each other's way. I'd say with some planning and flexible cables you could leave a good part of a patch plugged in, but you may have to take out a couple of cables for transport. Something to be aware of.

The power supply is perfectly adequate, everything is working as it should.

One more thing: in early announcements from Arturia, the width of the case was advertised as 88hp. It is, in fact, 89hp wide. The threaded strip has only 88 screwholes, but there's room inside the case for 89hp worth of faceplates. Just shift the strip a little to the left or right inside the rail and mount one module with its faceplate extending beyond the strip.

Practical case

MarkusCologne, 07.09.2018
The Arturia RackBrute comes very close to my ideal concept of a modular case. I deliberately wanted to limit myself and not put a fridge right away. I ordered the 3U as a supplement to my 6U. Together, the cases form a compact unit. The power supply is very generously dimensioned (in the case of the 3U almost oversized) and, despite its full configuration with analogue and digital modules, is far from out of breath - very important for operational safety! Incidentally, the power supply already consumes 5 TE, that should be in the Thomann product description, because you have actually only 171 TE at leisure. Logical, but I have overlooked it anyway.
The number of bus plugs (they exist in two orientations) should be sufficient for almost all applications. Whether the solid hole rail of wisdom is final, I do not know. I would have preferred flexible nuts that can be moved in the rail because it eliminates the possibility of tolerance variations in the screw holes.
