Pro tip: if you place your WiFi nub exactly here then it won’t come loose no matter how much you shake around the OG shipping box.
Kinda feel like a dork posting packing pics but here you are! The pelican 1450 can comfortably pack the following:
Little bag of all the cords needed to jam.
Enough extra room for a little speaker probably.
Big thanks to the Pelican 1170 recommendations on the thread. Is the perfect Norns and 128 carrier, though am slightly nervous about the grid buttons/faceplate being compressed by the foam.
A repurposed case that happened to fit a speaker, battery, wall plug and cables!
And then that slipcase for the grid from Amazon that someone suggested in this thread.
Little mobile sound studio hehe
I have the TE softcase for the OP-1 as well, but that thing is an absolute cat hair magnet lolol
I took a punt with this case for my norns and although it has round edges it fits perfectly and i like the additional pockets for cables and other accessories.
…but it’s freakin’ awesome!!!
For those who have one, how do you carry your 16n faderbank safely ?
16n is definitely one of the most fragile pieces of gear i know/have. i used to wrap it in bubblewrap and put it in a shipping box. since i got my peli case i stack it on top of my grids (with 5 mm foam in between). i also use two pieces of foam on each side of the sliders for extra protection.
I keep on delaying on buying a peli but I guess I’ll have to buy sooner or later
Made myself a DIY portable norns shield station. Using the same Bubm bag I use to pack my portable gear for outdoors sessions. Installed some wooden plates so my norns doesn’t dance around and everything is a bit more sturdy…since the bag is not a hard case. The station includes:
- norns shield (obviously)
- a battery pack
- a headphone amp
- a small portable speaker (for when I can’t be bothered to put headphones on)
- audio and usb cables (all hooked up)
- a monome grid (tucked away in the front pouch)
It’s functional but not that perfect. I gotta find a good hard case that can house all of this and still be small enough to throw it in a backpack.
I’ve got a couple Pelican cases I use for whatever gear I’m using at the time. And a bag of foam pieces to customize. Specifically to Norns and Arc, I recently picked up two custom cut felt covers to add a bit more protection from WaveTable. Real nice.
Thanks for these links! Just bought one from pi hut and it’s a really good fit for the most recent grid model:
Haha yes! Nice that it still lives!
Cheers! I was looking around for a matching felt bag for the Grids. Perfect!
