Let's Go Shopping

The Studio Series of enclosures is a highly flexible EuroSynth/EuroRack modular synth enclosure system.

The Studio Series comprises 3 main families:-

  1. The Series 300 - skiff style with an internal module depth of ~40mm. Fundamentally designed as lids for the Studio 500 and Studio 700 but can be used as a skiff enclosure
  2. The Series 500 - desktop style with an internal depth of ~76mm/129mm (front/rear)
  3. The Series 700 - boat style with an internal depth of ~84mm

All boats are 2x3U high and available in widths of 42HP, 84HP, 104HP, 126HP and 168HP. Other interim widths of 62HP, 146HP and 188HP are available on special order.

End Cheeks are available to not only cosmetically enhance the appearance of the Studio family but to also add the next level of flexibility:-

With the End Cheeks it is possible to use the Studio 300-LID enclosures as a deep lid for all of the Studio enclosures. The deep lid allows a semi-patched boat to be transported without the need to unpatch. To simply patches bteween multiple boats we recommend the use of the ED142 Extenda-Patch.

Studio Tree

  • The End Cheeks will also work with our family of frames ('Trees') that will allow the Studio family to work together as an overall system.
  • Various permutations of the 300, 500 and 700 enclosures will cater for most user requirements from single enclosure solutions to multi-enclosure systems combined with free-standing and (future) wall-mounting frames.
  • Heavy-duty shoulder straps are available for all configurations (must have End Cheeks fitted and requires a Studio LID).

The 18U Studio Tree combines a Studio 500 Desktop with 2x Studio 700 Boats.
The 12U Studio Tree combines a Studio 500 Desktop with 1x Studio 700 Boat.
(NB: Studio 300's can be used in place of the Studio 700).
(NB: the bottom (removable) unit does not have to be the same width as the Tree section. You could, for example,
have a Studio 500 84HP sitting with a 104HP, 126HP or even 168HP Treer.
Thumbscrews lock the enclosures together but also povide a quick-release mechanism allowing any of the enclosures to be removed
(the Studio 500 only needs its power cable disconnected).

(*) The indicated number of busboards (both powered and passive) is the recommended minimum configuration offering good power capacity and plenty of, and easily accessible, module power outlets. Passive busboards may be replaced with powered busboards if extra power is required (the number of module outlets does not change).

(**)All Studio Systems (excluding the Studio 300 Skiffs) will now use a 2-pin MIC connector for the main 15VDC supply. Our 15VDC bricks will be supplied terminated with this 2-pin MIC connector. Customers providing their own 15VDC bricks will either need to:-

(a) re-terminate their supply with a 2-pin MIC connector (available from us), or

(b) request we supply a 2.5mm termination set with the system

In the Studio 500 an extra row of busboards (passive and/or powered) may be added if you require additional load capacity or a larger number of module outlets.
