[sdiy] From a commercial standpoint -- has Eurorack "won"?

I guess, by "easier" I meant that it was easier for me to just do it right
to begin with, so if I wanted to make it VCQ later, it was already done, and
instead of audio going through a panel pot, it was just reference voltages.
"Easier" wasn't the right word. "Better" would be the better word.

How can it be easier to design a VCQ than to not design a VCQ? :-)

What becomes easier I guess is that you can get away with a standard Q
potentiometer, you don't have to use a, say, reverse log pot with odd value.
Provided that you do the transfer function magic in your VCQ circuits

Not having to route audio through a panel pot could be considered easier as
well, but instead there are CV signals to route there, so no big difference
