That's not what we were talking about. It wasn't even about DIY anymore.  Sourcing, cutting, drilling, adapting, printing for your own pleasure and use is one thing. Another thing is taking bad copy of old circuit and selling it for big bucks only because the market is there to take it.   This thread is going nowhere. Only divides us all.

That wasn't synth DIY?  I don't get the "Modular is not SDIY  argument at all, in fact I'd say the majority of SDIY being done today is in Eurorack. Even if you get a full kit, there's a lot of learnig, enjoyment and satisfaction in assembling, soldering, calibrating, troubleshooting, modding etc...

I should really have written "synth DIY" rather than synthesis there.   For the same reason that softsynths aren't.  You're not really making anything, you're just sticking bits together.   The whole modular scene has gotten ridiculous, with folk charging  obscene amounts of money for badly-made clones of 1970s and 1980s synth  sections, no real appreciation of how they go together as a whole.  It  seems like what you do is find a circuit on someone's website, rip off  their PCB layout, snotter it together because soldering technique  doesn't matter as long as you can find proper genuine 1982 JRC4558  opamps because nothing else sounds quite the same, and then stick an  eyewatering front panel on and give it a stupid name.   Maybe that's what I'm doing wrong, maybe I should stop doing audio  routing stuff and concentrate on selling shitty vactrol lowpass gates  built on Veroboard for €450 a throw.  Ladies, gentlemen and those who  don't fit either category, I give you - the LimeElephantCustard  CocoCuckooDingleDingleDinglebe rry!  <muffled car alarm noises, getting  more and less muffled occasionally> Doesn't it sound amazing?  Get yours  *TODAY*!   --  Gordonjcp  ______________________________ _________________  Synth-diy mailing list    Synth-diy at synth-diy.org  synth-diy.org synth-diy.org listinfo/synth-diy    ______________________________ _________________   Synth-diy mailing list      Synth-diy at synth-diy.org    synth-diy.org synth-diy.org listinfo/synth-diy        --   Quincas Moreira  Test Pilot at VBrazil Modular
