Great way to travel with Receptor
If you are looking for a way to take a Receptor hardware plugin player on the road, and keep either a laptop or an LCD screen with you, then you'll definitely want to take a close look at the SKB Studio Flyer.
I'm impressed with its ruggedness and the quality of materials, and I've used it on several gigs and have to say that I'm extremely happy with this case. The design is very clever, with the movable braces in the top lid, and the fold down lid that also serves as a mouse pad. The latches are super heavy duty, and the fact that it rolls around and has a built in handle... definitely traveling in style.
Two small drawbacks: this case is really tough, which also means its a bit on the heavy side - 15 pounds when empty. This might be a concern for musicians who need to fly to go to a gig. When fully loaded with a Receptor (15 pounds) and a laptop (10 pounds with power supply), plus the 15 pound weight of the case, you're pushing 40 pounds, and very close to the limit for US airlines for carry on luggage. (Most Us airlines allow a single 40 pound bag, but some are as low as 25 when travelling to places like Hawaii) The carry on weight limit on many European and Asian airlines is even less, which means you might have to check it to the destination, and I'm uncomfortable checking valuable things given the way that baggage handlers throw stuff around...
My only other issue is that when its fully packed, there isn't a lot of room for cables, but that's no big deal for me since I use a separate cable bag. But if you were looking for a complete all in one transport solution, you might find that there isn't enough room for all your cables if you have a big 2U rack device to mount in the main area... I hear they have a 4U case coming out though...that would be plenty of room for my cables AND my IO interface...
Having said all that, for local gigs around town or touring in a van or bus, this is an awesome way to have your rack and your monitor or laptop with you in a compact, convenient, and highly portable form.
One word about SKB quality. I've checked out a lot of cases in my life, and SKB's quality is simply beyond reproach, with their million mile guarantee... and its made in the USA as well.
My one sentence summary is this: I'd definitely buy it again!
