Comments about SKB Studio Flyer Portable Studio Rack:
I'm bummed out about this purchase, because it is so close to being perfect, but has what I consider a fatal flaw. The good news is that this flaw won't necessarily apply to you...
After racking my brand new Focusrite 18i20 interface, I discovered that the front of the studio flyer doesn't close without making contact with and slightly pushing in on the knobs on the front of the interface. Ultimately I can get it shut without too much pressure on the knobs, but worry that over time this pressure will cause a short. Not to mention, any bump to the front of the unit is going to translate that energy directly to the most vulnerable parts of the equipment the studio flyer is supposed to protect, thus rendering the whole thing pointless. Back to the drawing board.
The Focusrite may in fact stick out further than other similar interfaces; I don't know. I imagine it works fine with some other units, or else everyone would be talking about it.
If not for the fit issue with my interface, I would surely keep it. It looks sleek, and has a cool design. You can leave everything set up and ready to go. I had a Middle Atlantic power conditioner and the Focusrite mounted, with the laptop on top with the power cable and USB routed through the holes on top of the studio flyer. So I could just pop the top off, open the front and back, plug in a single power cable, and am ready to start connecting mics and recording.
On the whole I love the design, but just wish the rack rails were mounted about 1/4" further back in the case. I also wish the laptop compartment came with some Velcro straps to secure the laptop better during transport.
