This video, via Jens Paldam, demonstrates how to build a DIY Eurorack synth case out of cardboard.
For many, building a Eurorack case out of cardboard to house hundreds, in not thousands, of dollars of modules might be a questionable idea. But Paldam put a lot of thought into the design and the result looks pretty impressive.
Paldam was inspired by an earlier cardboard Eurorack case design – but updated to be ‘resilient and awesome enough for permanent use.’
Paldam has shared his design as a downloadable PDF.
Here’s an example of Palam’s synth in action:
