42/54 hp Lunchbox Inspiration


Little effects box that would go well as an extension of pretty much any external instrument.

An extra 2hp for crow would be nice!


this is what i’m playing right now waiting for the new power for may case

and here just mangrove + dplpg + kria


You can also get the 4U x 42hp case direct from Intellijel.



Does 60hp (well, 61… thanks NoNo!) still qualify as “lunchbox”?


It just feels like it’s missing something without a Cold Mac…


I’m trying it out like this (maximum voice/hp) but I might swap out one of the Mangroves for Cold Mac if I find myself missing it too much…


Looks cool to me, but yeah, the Cold Mac is a handy utility to have in a small case depending on your goals. I’m working on an 84 4u and compared to my main case (6u 208 total) it seems like a lunch box. I still have my 42 4u too, but I’ll need to retool it. I may not even fill it and it’ll be a stable that I can mess around with and take things in and out of my 84. I like having the chance to tinker a bit, because I try to keep my main case pretty stable. These lunch boxes are great as testing grounds. I’m already getting some modules that I’m going to put into my main case (Ultrafold in to the main case and trade the uFold out and put that in the smaller case. I put the LxD into my main case and pulled out my Optomix too after playing with it in my lunch box on tour.

Still very fixated on the 42 for improv, but with improv and interfacing with other instruments, the 84 made more sense. The ES8 and Sewastopol taking up 16 hp in of a 42 case was pretty intense + Planar for the gestural element and the 42 case is pretty much gone ha. The hard decision and priorities evaluation is such a great exercise with smaller cases. But I can’t imagine playing a solo set with a 42 lunchbox. You’d really have to dig deep. May be worth pursuing just to attempt that kind of mastery.



That Two Tone looks truly amazing in there! I didn’t know it was available. From where?


I got it in a trade with @bmoren a while back… it’s a fantastic LPG. He may have some more available, might be worth reaching out.

Normally, there would be a DPLPG in that spot, but with the “breathing room” of an extra hp, I’m excited to try something new.


This has to be the most “lines” skiff ever.
