4U (7" high vs 17" wide). The original Serge panels used a grid of holes on 1 inch centers, so Serge "module" width tends to be also a multiple of 1 inch.
The NLCsynth also uses the same banana jacks & has a similar audio & CV structure.
Not all the panels are finished and the final case is still being fabricated.

The NLC synthesizer marries very well with my Serge.
The final synthesizer will consist of 9 panels.
1.SEQUENCER PANEL (Bindubba 3 & 1)
9.CELLULAR AUTOMATA PANEL
To this setup I plan to add 3 vintage Oakland Serge panels to make up the dozen.
At this time I hadn't decided upon the final shape or size of the case.
We toyed with lots of designs ..... ???
These pics date from early to mid 2012 & we still hadn't decided upon the final case shape.
Today (6th Dec, 2013) the NLC looks like this:
As you can see, my woodworking skills aren't to die for, so these cases will be scrapped in 2014 in favor of a professional case made by my mate Nathan. The Serge Creature will be gone and two 6 panel cases will be used. The pics below are some of the prototype cases we mulled over.
It's quite a simple design. Practical, not fussy and portable. It reminds me of some classic early synth cases such as the "David Morley Serge".
