ML10X Rack options?

I use my ML10X in a rack… niche market I know.
With an expanded MC8 on the floor.
The ML10X plug orientation means it requires 2RU space… not ideal.

I’ve considered re-boxing the unit into a 1RU… Any thoughts.

Dream version would be the MC8 brain in a rack with a ML20X :o and mono jacks. Then a floor control that is just switches with label/displays.
