    Do these things still exist??

    Hey,

    I'm looking for this product that used to sit under my monitor that served as a power switch tool. It had like 6 switches, each powering on and off a different part of my computer. Like, I could turn on my speakers, monitor, and computer with the flip of a few switches.

    Do they still make these things? What do you call them? Are there any cool ones just for music products?

    I want to power my Alesis M1's, Computer, Monitor, and mic pre-amp without the hsasle of jumping around everywheere.

    You can have them made up real cheap and they are called switcher boxes or breakout boxes. Otherwise I believe studiospares used to have them, but can't be sure.
    Get one made, piss easy and cheaper than the glorified versions out there.

    I could use one of those things too.
    One of my components doesn’t have a power switch at all so I have to crawl under my desk and plug it in when I want it on.

    After a bit of searching around I bought this one:

    Same idea, fewer switches and not a rack-mount. There are other kinds around too. Most online office supply places have them with the power bars and surge protectors.

    I have one I use right now- main, computer, monitor, printer, aux1, aux2. Aux 1 and 2 go to my speakers, and printer powers up the ol' mixer. It's called the Belkin PowerMasterII, Model # F5C130.

    Cool, thanks for the help. I went over to the local Fry's, and found out they're called "Power Centers". Cost 19.99 for a cheesy looking one, and 24.99 for the less-cheesy one. That black one above looked pretty cool.
