  • rack mountable bracket?

    I saw this today and would like to know if anyone here uses one?

    http://www.rolandus.com/products/pro...09&ParentId=66

    It says is useable for a TD-10. Could you use it for other modules. I use a TD-12. And, does anyone have a picture of their module using this adapter?

    M!

    Yep. Same mount pattern as TD12 and TD20 too

      I have one for when I need to rack mount my TD-20. It works great.

        Thanks for the info!

        How many rack spaces does it end up taking.

          Depends how you squeeze things, but I leave 4 spaces.

            Rack Mount

            I've always thought of getting a DJ rack (the kind that has the angled flip up top - see link) and putting two modules on the top part and amps, mixer, sampler and other stuff on the bottom racks. Has anyone ever done this?

              That's a neat looking rack DZ.
              Something like that would work well for my new mobile recording rig too

                Yeah man, I'm really digging the idea of this rack mounting thing. It seems to me like it's the way to go. I'll be playing a lot of shows shortly, so I think rack mounting my TD-20, my TMC-6 and my Onyx 1620 is going to be by far the easiest way of moving everything around... Now all I gotta do is sort out flight cases for my kit (which I'm really not looking forward to!!). Apologies if I'm hijacking the thread, but how safe is gear inside a decent rack? Can it take a bit of a pounding or what? Mr Render, any chance of showing us a pic of your module in the rack, just so's I can get an idea of how much space I'll need?

                  You think you'll get everything in that rack? I have an Onyx 1620 as well and it looks to me like that alone would take up most of that rack. The top section doesn't look big enough for the Onyx either.

                  As far as gear safety, a rack (a decent one) will be very good protection for equipment providing it (the rack) has proper covers or is placed inside a flight case.

                    1620 for me / my band too ......... though it was a bugger to fit ...... the rack rails had to be doctored - when the mixer was first fixed in , we couldnt get the lid on with cables plugged in .................. had to drop the rack rail mounting points by a few inches ..........think you can see from the pic the mixer is tilting back slightly so lid can close with cables still plumbed in.............. also beware of the rear sockets ............. its a fairly deep mixer so we had to adapt several cables with right-angled connectors................. but now it makes for a very quick set-up ......... and channels stay plumbed , just pull tails out the back, plug em in / off you go. So yes, a good route to take for a ready wired / easy set-up kit.

                      Not that rack in particular SP , but I was thinking about one with a pop up top that I can angle. Finding one deep enough will be the trick though, the height of the back end of the 1620 is over sized to say the least!! Got any experience rack-mounting a PC, SP?

                      Nice work Steve I'm really not looking forward to hunting down a case that will hold it well to be honest man, but I do take some solace in the fact that I've now seen it done Cheers dude!! Do you think you'd have had any trouble closing the lid with the mixer un-plumbed? I don't wanna have to mess around with the rack itself. Is your rack 12 or 14 rack spaces deep?

                        Source ............ lid would have closed ok unplumbed, its the 4" of jack / xlr plumbed in that mess it up ! ........ but if i was gonna lug around a big case like that as a 'control' rack i'd want to leave it plumbed ......... less time / aggro / wear'ntear ? ........ and if you go for a pop-up / stay plumbed, allow a bit of extra cable for when in 'up' mode.

                          I use an Mackie 1604 VLZ in an SKB Mini Gig Rig and had to pop off the front guard piece of the mixer to get it to fit. It doesn't look like the Onxy series has that piece.

                          I will try to get a photo og my TD-20 racked soon, but right now, the modules are on a stand.

                            What I'm looking to do is put the modules on top. I have a small Yamaha mixer that I plan to put on a pull out locking shelf and attach by sticky back velcro. I also plan to have power management and amps in the bottom as well. Maybe someday a Fantom XR. Need to win the lotto to do all the stuff I want.

                            The other thing I was planning on doing (after my next bonus) is getting some of the Planet Waves modular snakes for the cables from the back of the module to my MDS-20 built ins (plus the few other cables I had to snake on to max out my modules). That way I don't have to plug in 20+ 1/4" TRS connectors. The only bummer besides the expense is that the ends of the snake only come with 8 1/4" Male TRS connectors. I'd really love it if they had 10 each. That way I'd only need 4 instead of 6 for my current setup. Oh well. Guess that will give me another excuse to get that TD-12/20. I also wish they offered it with a female 1/4" connector (but it's easy enough to get a radio shack connector to fix this).

                              I hear you about the 1620's depth. I am about to design a custom rack for my 1620 and my new PC but I'll probably be designing it to be in two separate modular sections. The main reason for that is that my PC is both the core of my studio and my mobile recording rig. When I'm using it in the studio, I usually don't use the Mackie and the PC is connected to my Protools rig and dual studio displays. When I use it for location recording, it boots to a different OS and runs the Mackie with Reaper and a single 19" LCD display.
                              I built the PC into a media center case which has rack mount options so that is all pretty straight forward.

                              Multi pin snakes are definitely a good idea. Very soon, I'll be rebuilding my cage using Gibraltar hardware and will be cabling it all in sections with multi pin connectors for easy transportation and setup. Basically, I'll be transporting the cage in complete sections with thr drums and cables all still attached. I don't have an exact plan for the cymbals yet though.
