Synth racks, anything besides Jaspers?

Hi Joost

I'm using the top tier of my Jasper keyboard stand for the tabletop units - but then, I don't have all that many. The bulk of gear is mounted in a 50 cm wide wooden basement storage shelf to which I attached rack mounting rails. This has served me well for the past 15 years or so...

If I had more table top units I would probably go for DIY combination of wood pieces to organize and hide the cable mess, provide a slanted base surface, and then add some 3D printed adapters / mounting points to hold everything together.

I’m in the fortunate position to now have plenty of space in my studio / office. But I’m struggling to get a layout that works. For synths with keybeds, the Jaspers stand works pretty well.

For tabletop stuff on a… tabletop, I’ve noticed it super quickly becomes a giant mess of cables and clumsy stuff behind the first row of gear.

Putting rackmountable stuff in a desktop rack helps (like the Neutron/Pro-1), and I’m considering printing ears for stuff like the Crave / TC Flashback delay / Kaoss Pad, but perhaps there’s something I’m missing. Slanted desktops in a Jaspers?

What are your rack/stands/mounting tips? New products or IKEA hacks? :)

PS: someone should make a Stereo audio + MIDI → wifi-6 low power converter… reorganising stuff is fine but the cables…. the cables!!!
