Sorry for the "noob" question, but I always see racks (stuff with effects?) in studios and during live performances. I'm just curious what are they for? TY
Uh... you put amps and effects in them and it sticks them all together...
Effects, EQ's, compressors and attenuators.
but dont pedals already do that?
A rack is basically a metal cabinet, that's 19" wide and has threads on both sides. You can then mount rack mountable gear to it, and it keeps everything organized. It's for all sorts of equipment, and it's got a standard sizing scheme for how tall and how wide the pieces of equipment need to be. All rack mountable gear is 19" wide, and has a height in incremental rack units, 1U = 1.75".
