List the case you have, why you bought that particular brand, price, and where it can be bought!

My was made as a Custom build by local company called Buster Cases in Bury UK, http://www.bustercases.co.uk/80415/info.php?p=1 for £120 by collection.

I sent them a copy of the mechanical diagram http://www.presonus.com/media/diagrams/studiolive2442_mechanical.pdf
which I found on the Presonus web site and they made it from those dimensions.

The company was in constant touch whilst going through the planning stage. Due to the low proximity of the power socket and other connections on the back, the mixer had to be set on top of the foam in a reverse case configuration. This means that the mixer can remain in the base whilst its being operated. If I get chance I'll post a pic of it later.

I bought a second hand mixer flight case and adapted the inner side: new dog house, some paint, foam and a connector panel. It's Stage Accompany blue, which is a bit darker than the standard blue you see nowadays (I own an old Stage Accompany PA set, so I wanted the same blue ). I really love the connector panel with the multi-plug (Harting 108p), fire-wire, USB, powercon in, Shuko out, phones and some XLR input/output (all Neutrik). The USB is currently connected to a USB-audio device (in case I use a laptop without fire-wire), but I can also throw in an USB disk with my music etc.

In my case , the mixer is laying on some strips of foam, so there is some ventilation room at the bottom side of the mixer. I mounted a 8x8cm fan on a ventilation plate in the bottom of the case: it blows fresh air against the bottom of the SL which is exhausted via the side holes in the dog house. So, my mixer won't fail because of bad ventilation...

The mixer is not fixed. It is laying on foam strips and is pressed against the front by a foam strip at the bottom-back. The lid of the dog house is pressed down by foam in the cover. The same holds for the mixer at the fader end.

(I changed the connector panel a bit as descibed above, so the pics show a different config.)

The dog house is big enough to put my laptop on:

This one sounds like it'd be a good case! Show us some pics!

~500 EUR custom made. Left place for two fx, UPS behind fx, multipin behind fx, right place for headphones, litlite, pen, etc.
Wouldn't carry much more alone.

no, but can make some next week.
I need Chorus, gated reverb, dynamic delay and reverb, so I decided to use a TC electronic M350 and a Lexicon MX200. A UPS (APC) is enough for the desk.
Photos coming next week.
Regards,
Carsten

I also decided to build my own. I have first put a pc together, setup for audio. That also made it easy to immediatly have a good firewire card. And then made a flight case where the studiolive together with the pc could fit in.
And I wanted a dog house
I can rotate the screen 90 degrees, and then fold in down into the case.
The SL is sitting a bit higher on the bottom of the case, to have access to the headphone connector and to
allow air to flow through, so the pc can take in enough fresh air for cooling.

Anonymous, nice setup with screen!
One remark though : the wooden side(s) do not stick out above the knobs like I did in my case.
You can see it here: http://www.plugingeluid.nl/data/uploads/mixer.JPG
I did this on purpose to protect the knobs/faders when closing the case. My $0.02...
