[sdiy] The API Lunchbox format

But it is +/-16V rails?!
(maybe early API ones were under-powered -- seems like they're now 
typical 250mA per 'slot')

However, that's the standard modular rail voltage for EuroRack, so API 500  wouldn't really be a step back in that sense, although some modulars are ±15 V or even ±18 V.
> I agree with someone else in this thread (?) who said that API 500 would be great if you have multiple formats in a tall rack. You could have one or more 19" rack-mounted cases in a 12U rack and then mix and match - some API 500, some Euro, some Moog, etc.
