It’s Eurorack without the big rack. Or rack modular that thinks it’s desktop. In any event, if you ever found a module or three you wanted to use without getting a big rack, or quick portability for a beloved module, 4ms may have a solution for you: 4ms Pods.
They’re cute. They’re cheap. They’re daisy-chainable. So if you don’t want that “cockpit” / “I’m outfitting a submarine command center” look, now you can take modules and put them in little handheld boxes you can move around, mix with desktop synths and effects, guitar pedals – whatever.
The daisy-chainable power designed just for this range also mean that you can put together a handful of pods pretty economically, since you only need to buy one with power supply. The pricing – the number being the size in hp, of course:
Pod20: US$55 unpowered / $99 powered
Pod26: $60 / $109
It’s a clever idea, and they look really nice. Now they just need a nice carry case – a Podpod?
4ms announced these earlier today; “coming soon.”
Coming soon! 4ms Pods are portable, compact, Eurorack enclosures (1.25” inner depth). Pod20 (20hp): $55 unpowered, $99 powered // Pod26: $60/$109 // Pod32: $65/$119 – Powered Pods come with a newly designed, daisy-chainable supply (external power brick sold separately). #4msPods pic.twitter.com/iuongc18SX
