Re: Metal blank panels
- the problem is analogue systems have drilled their holes on the
modules in a slight different position to doepfer, so you get a gap
between doepfer and analogue systems modules.
You can buy the rails from Analogue Solutions (don't know what they
charge), they have a downloadable file about building cases for

1) dissamble the case and cut the strip that the modules screw into
into shorter lengths so that you *can* slide the modules up against
each other (i.e. adjacent modules are fixed to a different piece of
threaded track), or
2) instead of the long rails, slide individual nuts into the track,
so that you can position the modules anywhere along the length. This
would make mounting modules pretty fiddly though! The back panel on
the case is held on in this way, i.e. there are no long strips there,
just three (or whatever it is) nuts, one for each screw. I'm pretty
sure the nuts are a standard metric size.
