My rack is so much smaller than yours... major processing envy over here.

That's rack A.... it has a bottom too with power conditioners, the satellite for my motu, a dbx 160x, some RNCs, an 1176 clone, a lexicon multi fx for day to day delay, verb, wobble etc and 96pts of patchbay for this rack and all the inserts of the console (which was miserable to wire, truly miserable)... the B rack is the main soundcard and utility stuff like midi distribution and power amps, boring but essential stuff. I need to build racks C and D still, project for this week. C will be bulky stuff like my Gateses and another unmatched 1176 and lesser used processors like the 522s, alesis units, etc, D is more specific fx like the really good lexicon PCMs, this weird Ibanez delay I like,SPX90 and I'm thining of buying a klark teknik for short, natural verbs for rock mixes because it sounds fairly real for those and they get out of the way quick....hard to track one down that's serviced.

any leftover space will be rack synths which are currently in boxes in a closet while I get the day to day tools set up

I just got that, rack envy, its a rack measuring contest.... LOL. Jeez my kid's melting my brain. I'm really a big fan of 19" rack format. I mean most engineers are but I lvoed it as a teenager. its like, this can be hooked together once and made tidy and never touched again, YES! even for live you just build roadcases up with hardwired outs and ins and you run them to the house system or whatnot, great. So I always have a lot of this stuff and I don't get rid of much. I do purges at times, mostly when i realize stuff I got for $50 has become trendy and I can profit... but not usually, I just store it if I'm not using it.
