These pictures really don't reflect all the hard work that when in to making this mixer case.
So the mixer is the Rane 2016 MP+XP. Since the mixer is designed for rack mount, all of the correctors are on the back of the unit. When I started checking out cases it looked like I was going to have to get something that was 4U in depth to accommodate the depth of the unit plus the space required for cabling. I felt that 4U would have been way too high.
Instead, a buddy of mine and I decided that the way to do it was to get a smaller case, custom cable all of the internals and then terminate all of the inputs/outputs on a patch panel. 15 man hours (which my buddy did) and $500 worth of parts later we have the end result, which I promote as the finest mixer case on the planet for the Rane 2016.
The power supplies are mounted in to front as well and the heat they give off makes the front hand rest the perfect warmth. And when I want to play at a party I just put the lid on and go. It really worked out nice I think.

I got the 60 X 24. I paid way less then that ($350 I think) but it took a couple months to arrive.
I one thing I didn't like about it was that if you would bump it there would be a lot of feedback with the Technics. Just tapping the service of the table would cause it. But now that I switched to the CDJs it doesn't matter.
Keith Chambers, that's awsome how you did that case Nice TV in the background too

Yeah the totally flush (meaning no wires) plasma and surround sound was another massive project with the same buddy. I guess he's a pretty good guy to have around.
We are renting a warehouse here in Seattle where I am going to DJ in a couple months. This guy is bringing a $5000 argon laser that he brought. The laser is so powerful that he needs a permit from the county to turn it on. That, along with all the other lighting he has is going to make it a killer event!
