"With Mantis we took our years of experience with Eurorack to create a low cost case that makes the Eurorack modular synthesizer look, work, and feel like a professional instrument. Mantis is an instrument that is at home on stage, touring or in the center of the studio.
Mantis has two rows of 104HP for you to rack your modules. It comes fully powered and assembled, just drop in your modules and play.
Using its sophisticated leg mechanism you can set it to three different positions: 0, 45, 90 degrees.
Power Power and more Power! With Mantis say bye bye to the tedious, never-ending calculation of current consumption for the ±12V power. Mantis comes with a juicy Zeus power supply that delivers plenty of power both now and for the future.
Mantis is beautiful and the color contrast between legs and body gives it its identity. Legs are offered in 4 different colors so anyone can find the right look.
Mantis does not come with loose sliding nuts in aluminum extrusions or rails with wrong mounting holes. Mantis is easy to operate because it comes with real Z-Rails according to Eurorack enclosure standards. It also comes with keyed power connectors to help protect your modules from burning by plugging power in reverse.
Mantis is easy to move around with, it weighs only 3kg/6.5lb, with a case so light traveling had never been so relaxed."
