Self-contained digital recording studio in a suitcase!
by Joel Young from Albuquerque, NMI bought the GR-3S to create a portable, digital recording studio consisting of a Motu 8pre, a Furman M-8x2, a rack-mount hard drive, and my Macbook Pro (running Logic). The setup is exceptionally low... read more [+] noise, which I need for producing demos for producers and artists' agents, and this case carries everything securely (saw for the laptop, which of course has its own bag).

Music Background: songwriter, artist and advertising pitch demos
I boot up the laptop, flip open the case, jack in the artists' instruments and mics, let them warm up while I set the levels, and bam--ready to record. close [-]
Lightweight - Rackmount Hardware A Bit Odd
by Daniel "Danny" Maland from Salt Lake City, UT, USAI'm quite pleased with this unit overall. However, the design of the rack rails, which utilizes separate plates that are stuck to the actual rails via double sided tape, seems very strange to me. I'm ... read more [+]sure there's a very good reason for it, but without any explanation offered the solution appears overwrought and "cluttered." close [-]

Case works great, I use it every weekend
by Chuck from DCLight, sturdy, and no back aches lifting it. And no car paint scratches from bumps to worry about when hauling it in and out of cars.

But if you're mechanically challenged then I suggest just using some simple household some epoxy/glue to seal the backplates before racking equipment. close [-]
Very nice shallow rack
by Ted from Kalamazoo, MII own 4 of these racks now, I was happy to see the 3 space format. I really like the size and portability of these racks. A couple things that could be improved, having used them for a few years now... read more [+].

1) The exposed clasps can get damaged, although they have held up pretty well. Ideally, these should be concealed.
2) The track mounting rails have 2 parts, the threaded part is the further inboard piece. This is a little goofy, but is only a problem if you take all the screws out (need 1 screw to keep the threaded back plate in place).
3) The covers have a gasket, that can (and does) fall out from time to time. While I like the seal it provides, just wish the gasket would stay in place.
If you are looking for an affordable, shallow, basic rack. This one works well. close [-]
