The Q163 is a go! Production has begun and they will start shipping in early August.
The Q163++ Eurorack adapter module provides mounting space, power distribution, and a patch bay for using Eurorack modules in a 5U Synthesizers.com system.
The Q163 panel consumes eight 5U spaces and provides an opening for 80HP of Eurorack modules. An array of slotted holes and threaded rails at the top and bottom provide mounting for modules of various widths and hole spacings. Thirteen patch points convert Eurorack's 3.5mm connectors to the 1/4" standard used in 5U systems. A built in Mixer++ adds valuable signal processing, mixing, and other capabilities to the module.
Eurorack +12 and -12 volt power rails are generated from the 5U system's +/-15 volt rails. The 5 volt power rail is also included. Seven Eurorack power headers are available for module power and LED's show the Eurorack power state.
Blank panels are sold separately.
