Suit & Tie Guy contacted us to let us know that his new STG Soundlabs Boat Rocker – a drop-in mod that turns your old Moog Mother-32 style case into a standalone powered Eurorack case – is now available.
The Boat Rocker was originally designed to let people that have moved one of Moog’s Eurorack-compatible synths into a larger system put their empty case to good use. It will drop into an empty Moog Mother-32, DFAM, BFAM, Subharmonicon or Spectravox boat.
It goes beyond existing power options by taking advantage of the Moog case’s existing connections, providing two independent power groups and supporting the STG Sync Bus.
The Boat Rocker is powered from a 15 volt external “brick” style PSU, which is included. It provides the +12v, -12v, and +5v rails from there, in two independently-regulated groups of 5 connectors each. Each group can absolutely provide at least 500mA per rail, giving you a full amp of each rail in the case total.
In addition, the Boat Rocker incorporates an integrated STG Sync Bus distribution to 4 connectors. The Sync Bus can be used to distribute sync signals, connected via your case’s rear panel 1/4″ TRS jack.
Note: The Boat Rocker is specifically designed for empty Moog synth cases. STG plans additional versions of the board for other applications, including Moog and Behringer Eurorack cases and DIY applications.
Pricing and Availability
The Boat Rocker is available now for $199 USD, with an estimated lead time of 2 weeks.
