Elegant, yet sober.
The PLUS case is a recognizable piece of design that does not steal the scene from what matters the most: your instruments and your music. We placed all the screws and joints inside the case, allowing the exterior to be just a neat, material surface with a pleasant look and feel.
Light and solid.
The PLUS’ Row Extension units are made of single-body, extruded-aluminum profiles to host modules up to 43mm deep. The sides can be made of premium wood or extruded aluminum, too. Once assembled, PLUS becomes a tight and sturdy case for your modules.
A lifetime companion.
PLUS is a case that follows your artistic evolution. There’s no need to worry about how your system will be like in one, two, or ten years: you may rest assured that you will never need to sell/trade/swap your PLUS.
Less planning, more music.
Your creativity does not deserve to be confined in a tight space. If your inspiration leads you to a new module that doesn’t fit your free HP, just get it: another Row Extension Unit will expand your case accordingly.
PHILOSOPHY AND DESIGN
PLUS is the first modular-modular case for Euro-rack synthesizers. It is built of practical, 42-HP units that can be assembled together in almost infinite configurations.
The modular synthesizer is a “liquid” instrument: it does not have a fixed shape, but it is molded by the musician’s needs and by the case it is mounted in—and it can change over time.
For this reason, of the struggles of the modular synthetists is that their case may become too small or too large for the instrument that they have in mind.
PLUS was designed to solve this problem. With its flexible architecture, it can grow or shrink according to the shape of the modular synthesizer it hosts. PLUS is a case that grows in space, but also in time, following the creative direction of the artists.
However, problem solving was not the only reason behind PLUS. It is also designed to be solid and el-egant, through extruded aluminum pieces joint to-gether with no visible screws.
As of today, there are four parts that can compose a PLUS case: two kinds of units, which are the main body of the case, and and two kind of sides that can close it.
Single unit, 42HP (solid)
This is an ideal solution both for Eurorack beginners and for experienced musicians who want a compact system.
You can also purchase a single unit to expand your current PLUS system.
Includes a single PLUS unit with sliding nuts, as well as all the necessary tools (hex screw, wrench, screws, nuts, washers, and pins) to connect it with another PLUS unit.
2pcs Row Extension Pack, 84HP (2x42HP, windowed)
Two windowed PLUS modules, designed to increase the rows of your PLUS based setup. Each piece has a window on one side to let the power distribution pass through the rows.
Includes two PLUS windowed units with sliding nuts, as well as the necessary tools (hex screw, wrench, screws, nuts, washers, and pins) to connect the two pieces.
4pcs Row Extension Pack, 168HP (4x42HP, windowed)
Four windowed PLUS modules, designed to increase the rows of your PLUS based setup. Each piece has a window on one side to let the power distribution pass through the rows.
Includes four PLUS windowed units with sliding nuts, as well as the necessary tools (hex screw, wrench, screws, nuts, washers, and pins) to connect the four pieces.
Thin Sides (two pieces)
A pair of aluminum thin sides with colored, coarse finishing.
This pack includes two aluminum sides with built-in screw for connecting it to your PLUS system, as well as a wrench and a hex key to easing the screwing.
Available in yellow, green and black. Try to combine different colors!
Thick Sides (two pieces)
A pair of Black Limba thick wood sides, designed to close and match your PLUS based setup.
This pack includes 2 Black Limba wood sides and connection screws to the PLUS system, as well as a wrench and a hex key to easing the screwing.
The wood tint can be light, spotted, or dark.
PLUS became a cradle for Endorphin.es Shuttle: an 84HP performance instrument with custom made side aluminum panels.
The PLUS used in the SHUTTLE comes with handmade golden silkscreen that immediately reminds Endorphin.es style.
