Certainly agreed. A couple of exceptions were interesting because of their
internal "patchability" even if it wasn't via patchcords:

Oberheim Xpander
Waldorf Wave

The idea of a hybrid, or basically a digitally-patchable modular, is very
interesting. A small market, but pretty interesting. One of these days,
probably in my retirement, I'd love to build that huge relay bank for a rack
of MOTM patching.
