Hi Trent,

This looks like a fascinating project. What I’m eager to see is what equipment goes in the various levels of cutouts you’ve got, since while it looks nice, I have no idea what your intended end-product will be arranged like.

Keep up the good work!

If you look at the SketchUp rendering, the rack on the left will house the PC.

The one in the middle under the desktop will face the user and house the two audio interfaces ( for the computer as well as a 16-point XLR patch bay( and a 48-point 1/4” patch bay ( There will also be a cable management panel ( and the rest of the spots will have blank panels ( to allow for future expansion.

The rack on the right will face outward and will have gear for the musician to interface with, including the same patchbays as well as a tuner ( , a headphone amp, and some rackmount effects.
