  1. These guys represent the manufacturers building your future in eurorack and only a few of them seemed to even want to be in the discussion. Geek and builder brains are not exactly what is needed for public relations, but come on.

  2. at this point the DIY community will have more to say about the direction of eurorack
    these guys are trying to predict a market that has grow WAY beyond their control

    : i want USB and bluetooth to be added to the eurorack standard

  3. I was at this session. There were interesting points, but I felt the moderator failed to maintain the focus and get everyone talking about the same topics. This seems to happen at most of these panel “discussions”.

    Ideally, the panelists should all be given the same list of questions in advance and then all be given a chance to speak on each topic and react to each other. Alternatively, a one on one interview with any of those guys would also have been interesting. Add slides of their work and products for a behind the scenes view.
