Modular designs... what's new?

Buzz Audio seems to be sellign their own mod and rack design. But I don't see anyone else yet like Great River, Hardy, Millenia... wasn't there supposed to be some other manufacturer's jumping on board the Buzz design?

Also, may I ask why the API 500 series standard was not used? I'm sure many of us have API racks sitting around with some open spaces. Wouldn't that have been the best and quickest way to jumpstart this whole "many pre's in one rack" idea?

Yeah, I've got a little Daking suitcase/rack with three empty panels. Wouldn't it be great if I could load it with whatever... Could it be non-standardized power supplies as well as pure dimensional issues?

fscott, there has been interest from a number of Tims fellow designers and I think a lot of use would like to see a standard like this develop.

I think the problem right now is simply getting the info into their hands and making them aware of the capability. Also a lot of people have things on their plate so its an issue of priorities.

The initial reports on from ARack/MA.1.5 users is very positive.

Old School Audio is a good example. Transformer based compressors (Opto, VCA, JFET) and EQ's (Graphic and Parametric) will be coming too all in the "API 500" modular format.
