hah thanks.. i never planned on having a setup of more than 6u, but you know how it goes... :)

it'll take me purchasing about 12u's worth of modules to figure out the best possible 6u setup for what i'm trying to do. now that i have 300 modules on the way (bantam style) shit will start getting really wiard.

This is my modified 9700s that I built several years ago. I've put the MIDI-CV module in one ear and the other ear is front plate for a Paia reverb unit that is bolted on the back of the case. I also added a new module that is based on two EFM module, the ladder filter VCF2f and LFO5A.

You might also spot an Virus TI and a Pro-One. The plan is to expand the modular with 6U Eurorack [ducking!] :-)

Just re-organized my studio and purged most of my Euro. I'm 95% frac now: (horribly shitty iPhone pic)

Proof that it all works: (this one is just the Bugs and Wiard-frac)

Great looking and sounding setup man!
I think the frac wiard is a great combination to the bugs especially when bananafied. Another dream that would be hard to attain for me.

i'm hoping to eventually bananify the whole system, tho the wiards' will be first for sure. then i can post my system in the banana systems thread :banana:

a fully bananafied wiard 1200/300/blacet system would be insanely awesome!

At some point in the not too distant Im going to banana the lower half of the frac rig. Ill do all of it if the hex zone can be converted. Although I love the bug filter I think I want to keep blue out of the blacet side so that will likely go. Have a miniwave to go in another gap too. :blacet: :bugbrand:

those look like bugbrand frac frames--- ingeniously designed to house 11 FW's instead of 10!

Not bug frames, they are some euro rails with the lip machined off and DIY side panels. I'm way too OCD to let one width go to waste, and I can also squeeze in a 4hp of dirty euro in there too!

Don't the rails have to be vertically offset a bit for the screws to line up with Frac?

Here's my solution to the synth tapas bar (AKA modular) conundrum.

Wine crates.

I try to keep it to a minimum for clarity. Many unpowered modules
dumb in the wings.
