Etch-a-Sketches, Palimpsests or Masterpieces: different takes on the nature of module design

An interesting and at times wryly amusing discussion of the current eurorack module scene by three manufacturers and one well-known user/performer, recorded at NAMM 2017. There is quite a lot of discussion about open-source, alternative firmware, DIY & hacking, and polymorphic/multifunctional modules, with repeated reference to Mutable Instruments and Olivier (hence this post, in this forum).

I don’t think we’ll be seeing any multi-purpose or open-sourced modules from Make Noise any time soon…
