plus / plus / [from latin plūs, comparative form of multus, ‘a lot’] – ‘a greater amount of number’, ‘more’, used both substantively and adverbially.
Modular – Modular
PLUS is a modular-modular case for eurorack system. We say two times modular cause it truly is a modular solution for modular synthesizers.
In fact, it is designed to be extended in both directions, as rows lengths, as well as in number of rows. This is done keeping the construction rock solid, and the assemble/extension very easy and fast.
Of course, all this is done maintaining a pure and pristine shape, without any screw or mechanical part visible.
On the example Single Modules are noted as “A”, Row Extension Modules, the windowed one, are noted as “B”, while wood sides are notes as “C”.

PLUS Wood Sides Combo Pack

This pack includes 2 Black Limba woods side and connection screw to the PLUS system, as well as a wrench and an hex key to ease the screwing.

You can start with just 1 module, then, as soon as you need space you can extend it to 2, then 3 then… who knows?
The unique dimension of 42HP lets you always get a compact and balanced case, as you can see in the examples.
PLUS is designed to avoid any waste of parts. The “ok I’ll get this and sell the other ’cause i don’t need it anymore” becomes an old approach with PLUS. You just let it grow basing on your needs. Every part will always be compatible with your others.
