Hello, High End Slutz. I just squeezed a bunch of gear into a 12-space rack with one of those Monster rack-mounted power supplies at the top . . . wondering if I am likely to experience any noise issues due to the proximity. The rack looks like this:
- Monster power thing
- Tube Tech CL1B
- FMR RNP & RNC (racked)
- 1U synth
- Line 6 Filter Pro (don't flame--I actually use it)
- Racked 500 lunchbox with Great River and API pres, 2 Harrison 32 EQs, one Komit comp
- 96 IO for PT HD
There are no spaces in between stuff. I am on a budget, so was hoping to get away with squeezing it all in there so I can use some nice snakes I have and not have to buy more fancy cables at $50 a pop (don't like to use checp cables).
In your experience, will the proximity of the power thing to the CL1B (or any of the other gear) introduce noise into the equation? Should I pull the power thing out and rack it separately? I will be busting my ribbon cherry in the coming weeks, so I think small amounts of extra noise will be an issue in a way it has never been before.
