Oh yeah, one more thing...
I though it would be a cool, space efficient, way to mount the PCB if you put
it on 1" stand-offs parallel to the plane of the face panel, behind the panel.
Instead of perpendicular. I don't have the ASM-1 board here, but would a
3-space panel be too small (height-wise) to do this kind of thing? See, I
wanted to make mine into a road case as well, but I was going to save space by
making it really shallow front to back, rather than really short top to bottom.
Afterall, it makes no sense to put it in a standard SKB rack, even if the PCB
is perpendicular - you're still wasting a whole lot of space. I say put it in
the bottom (or top and bottom!) half of something like a single-turntable road
case, or a keyboard case.
Just something to think about...
