The ToolMod mixing console uses a frame pcb with industry standard DIN41612 connectors for all bus rails and the power supply rails. Extension connectors on both ends of the frame pcb make linking to other frame easy and reliable. The connections from the main module to the fader and the connectors are attached directly to the module pcb's. The main audio ground rail is a high cross section, braided copper wire to maintain lowest noise operation.
The connector panels come with the modules. Several different versions are available. In addition to the single channel panels, there are backplanes that make the connection from and to the DAW and a patch-bay easy, since standard 25-pin d-sub cables can be used.

The ToolMod Console Frame is basically a tabletop frame that can be rack-mounted by adding brackets to the side panels. The brackets can be installed in two ways, which are suited for the intergration in a table or in a rack. See the side view for details. Instead of the the rack-mount brackets, wooden side panels and a leather armrest are possible.
