here is an url for the mini power source i was asking about, if you're
interested.

www.analogue.org/network/minipower.html

i want to build a nice wooden box, the width of the normal doepfer cases,
but with maybe 3 or 4 levels, as opposed to the 2(?) on the larger doepfer
units.
i'm going to start my system out with only 6-8 units, and buy gradually.
i thought the mini power supplies would be nice because i could simply buy
one for every 4 modules i purchase...

they do include a bus board with connectors for 4 modules...

does this sound like a solid idea?

is there a better way to do it (of course there is, i'm sure) which is more
efficient?

thanks a lot...
