That is an interesting comment. Especially the impossible part. I can totally understand the desire for functional density, but I think some Euro format manufacturers may have taken things a bit far.
One of the reasons I find this rig so enjoyable to patch is the amount of space around the jacks and controls on many of the modules.

I've got to talk to Metalbox about some ears. Some drums for sure. Maybe some logic as well. Have enough mults and attenuation.
I'm finding the Trunk Lines to be quite useful, too. :tu:

For sure. I have a few Euro modules where, due to the size of the plugs on my patch cables, I cannot use adjacent jacks as they don't physically fit. The modules themselves are fantastic other than that. I love the Euro modules that I have and I will continue to buy Euro modules that pique my interest and that I consider useable but for me, of the compact formats, frac is the clear winner in terms of useability.

Just a quick share... My current line-up of OberMod DIY panels for HexInverter, Barton Musical Circuits, PAiA, Cat Girl Synth, Bleep Labs and Synthrotek circuit boards.

DIY Rubicon would be great.

You could build an Ian Fritz Teezer right now.
Maybe a pair of them depending on how you wanted to layout your panel.

I'm very sorry to hear that. I've come close to selling mine a couple of times. That must be hard.
Hopefully things turn around for you soon.
