In my expirience with the Clavia Nord Modular, I at most chain 4 connections
(I.E., 1 source and 3 destinations), so a 4-unit multi is sufficient for me.
And you can always chain several 4-units, although wasteful. OTOH, why be
limited? This is MOTM, after all. In that respect, the 2x4 + 1x6 sounds
like a good combination, plus it has the extra-visible split in multis, and
easy mount for power distribution.

Stupid question: when soldering the jacks together, does it make any
difference if the wires are in a star configuration or networked? I would
imagine they would be best networked, for ease of solder and reliability.

Another (maybe less) stupid question: If many people can come up with a
suitably agreeable configuration, would one person be willing to do many
faceplates (rather than a one-off) (note: I am NOT NOT NOT volunteering
anyone!!!)? And if so, I would propose that we bulk-order sockets. Unless,
of course, the extra shipping/handling from the main reciever to each person
out-weighs the lower socket price. And above/beyond that, would we be
detracting from Paul S.'s business (not desirable!)?

--PBr, three nots, that's still a not.
