Sweet jesus.....
to be quite honest I am quite interested in the material he used...
i quote..
"the price of the whole thing is about 850 Euro, but that´s mostly caused by the motorfaders (20 Euros/pP) and the displays (4x 40 Euro). The buttons i made of plexiglas, the panel is made of a plastic material similar to ABS which is very easy to work with. I drilled and cutted the holes with a technique described by Dan in another thread. The result is not as "real" as a metal or aluminum panel, but with a good frame for stability it´s a good compromise "
the actual material is this German craft shop stuff

Man, that's really nice!  I will admit I seem to be out of the loop though.  Where can I find details about this project?  Are there schems and layouts, etc...?

your box are nice too!!!!!

But making a only 8 faders box with a lot of switch is not so expensive! I try to build mine for 1 year now, and I try to do something like the digidesign ProControl (to use with ardour). it cost me less than 300euros.... (and maybe less than 150 if you don't care about spare parts)
