Well, Craig Lee's octal quantizer is the most amazing DIY quantizer 
I've ever seen... LCD panel option, quartertone scaling, root note 
indicator, 32 scales and yes, eight quantized CV in/outs (all quantized 
to the one common scale though).  Pretty darn good for that price.  

Yeah, it's quite difficult to keep track of all the DIY modular stuff 
available now, let alone the commercial stuff as well.  To be honest I 
can't see it getting any easier as time goes on.  Check out 
http://www.modulargrid.net/ for sheer insanity of it all.
