1/2 rack compressor

Slightly odd request but I'm looking for a half rack two channel compressor.

I am aware there are lots of compressors out there not in the usual rack format, but it will be transported quite a lot so I'd like it to be securely fixed to the rack. Plus I only have 1/2 rack slot left now and I don't really want to have to buy a new rackcase.

I have done a few searches and found the Rupert neve comp but it's over my budget. The fmr rnc looks really good but as it's going to be transported in the rack it's not ideal really. I also saw the Joe meek compressor but I couldn't work out if it can be fixed securely to the rack, I couldn't find anything about rack ears on the website.

Are there any other 1/2 rack compressors you can recommend?

Edit: budget is around £400, $600 ish

The RNC is, well, a really nice compressor, and THESE guys sell rack trays for it. OK, the tray is designed for 2 RNC's but works fine with just one.

Good luck. Mike

If that were available in the 1/2 rack format that would be perfect, shame. I just sent an email to them to confirm but I know what the answer will be. Do any other companies do this type of thing?

I have used velcro (the plastic kind not the standard fabric stuff) for those kinds of issues. Once all cabled up and velcro'd it will not move.
