I'd say after two batches of cables I did - for Eurorack cables it's not really worth it unless you have to much time waste. The relation between time and cost compared to if you buy some is ot of proportion. I paid between 2-4$ per cable in the end and it took me about one hour to get 20 cables done. Of course these are super nice quality cables that last a lifetime now. XLR and TRS are a different story. Those cables are expensive AF.

It's more for sound quality and saving money. Here we are locked down after 6pm so have time ;)
Moreover if it's last lifetime.

Did you noticed a better sound quality ?
I assume you must have a whole quality signal chain to hear that difference. But have good monitors and just bought nice power supply. I have nice modules so it's waist to have basic patch cables.

I honestly don't think I'd hear a difference. For me it's more a tactile thing and to have reliable cables...but yeah I see you are in Paris so you have plenty of time to spend at home probably least until April... ;) :tu:
