racks just help in keeping things neat and easily stored, a power conditioner is nice to have in a rack, like a power strip with lights, very handy.

Yeah the rack is just the unit. What kind of things can you put in it? Well there are all kinds. Mine is a preamp, EW, Compressor, Sampler, Reverb Unit, and ADAT for example.

I have a rack mounted computer, 2 mountable editing VCRs, vectorscope, autotune, and SPL Vitalizer...and two shelves...

...almost got a rack mounted computer monitor... folded to 1U... but I ran out of money at the auction...went for $30 :P

getting a fan for your rack wouldn't be a bad idea, especially if your studio is in a spare bedroom and everything is really tight together. that room is probably going to be noticeably hotter because of all those electronic devices.

(i'm going to build a rack with my girlfriend's dad soon who is amazingly handy. i want to use some nice pieces of wood with a nice grain. we may build some monitor stands while we're at it!)
