    I'm pretty happy with the latest version of my rig - sansamp RBI, sabine rack tuner, carvin dcm1050 power amp. I recently mounted my wireless receiver in the top space of my 5u case on a rack tray. That leaves half a rack space left.
    Seems like the only piece of gear out there is a half space alesis nanoverb. Wouldn't mind having some verb or chorus for when I need it. Is therey anything else that could go in the space?

    There are actually tons of half-rack devices out there. Name the type of processor you want, and I'll name at least one in half-rack form.

    You know what I'd do if I bought it? I'd put my weed in there! Right in there. Oh, wait.. I've got something else.

    half space compressor. hmmm that sounds promising. I think I could get more use out of a chorus/verb/delay, though. I noticed that the nanoverb is a 18 bit. Is there a similar unit that's 24 bit?

    anything that has more than one function? say compression and chorus, or something along those

    I think some of Boss's later half-rack multifx were 24 bit. Look into the VF1.

    I'd add nothing.

    Leave the space for wires, cables, wall warts, power plugs, etc... that you need space for. So you have a space in the rack. No reason you have to fill it with anything. If you have to think hard or ask around for something to fill your rack, it seems you don't need anything but may not realize it yet.

    Regards.

    Since you can't get vent panels in 1/2U, I'd just leave it open for ventilation.

    Yup, you're not going to limit the which comp question very much by stipulating half rack space.
