The Auxiliary 16 is our version of a music studio side cart. It offers 10 units of rack space on its top side, and a front space that can be used to store audio and hi-fi units - or to add an additional 6U of rack storage. This makes it ideal for rack mounted synthesizers, eurorack systems and hardware effects that you want accessible next to your desk.

Despite its minimal appearance the Auxiliary 16 offers plenty of room and versatility as it has been designed as an open structure with many options. It fits perfectly tucked in under the Compact desk, and its classic design and high quality wooden finish keeps the look sophisticated and cohesive.

Product Description

RACK

It can store 10 units of 19" rack equipment on top, plus an extra 6 units of rack - or Hi-Fi separates - on the front. This makes the Auxiliary 16 is a highly functional storage unit for your studio and lets you mix hardware effects with amplifiers and receivers, sound cards and audio interfaces, as well as patch bays, desktop synthesizers and modular/eurorack systems - all in one small piece of furniture.

BEAMS

It comes with 6 internal beams which can be mounted to accommodate your needs depending on the setup. Three of those beams can be used in the lower part of the furniture as a shelf which can hold amplifier / receiver or any combination of Hi-Fi separates.

The three other internal beams can be mounted in the upper part of the furniture and be used to organize cables or to mount power supplies. They are especially useful if you use desktop synthesisers or Eurorack / Modular systems powered by external PSU (see detailed descriptions below).

CABLE MANAGEMENT

Cable management slots are integrated at the back and together with the included set of cable ties it is easy to keep all the multi-plugs and connections tidy.

An optional cable and headphone holder can be mounted on the sides of the Auxiliary 16, making patching easier and letting you organise all your Bantam, 1/4th and 1/8th patch jack cables.

SELF ASSEMBLY

The Auxiliary 16 has been designed to be shipped flat packed for a simple self assembly and to endure being mounted and unmounted multiple times. All you need is your own flat and cross head screwdrivers and a mallet hammer.

Cable and Headphone holder

Material

Due to its quality and high resistance to impact and humidity we have chosen to work with Baltic Birch Plywood, embracing its characteristic striped edges. Each unit is made individually in Barcelona Spain, combining modern CNC technology with traditional carpentry. The pieces are sanded by hand and then coated with a semi-matte varnish to give it a silky smooth finish that is easy to keep clean and that shows the beautiful grain of the wood.
