Cementimental, honestly, Arduino isn't so great soundwise.

Yeah that was kind of hyperbole... just find it odd that for a format geared up to perfect 12v analog synthesis people are so excited about all this fairly basic DSP stuff.

Monotome, no worries!

Cementimental, I think Eurorack is a world in between plenty of platforms. It's for the people who can't afford the crazy expensive stuff, enjoy the gadget thing you won't find in 5U, and don't want to learn how Serge works. I feel like it's often less about the sound and more about the options you have to do things with it. That's not where my interest lies but to each their own I suppose...

yeah true it is interesting in that regard. i'm especially interested in the possibilities of incorporating live video fx and synthesis into modular setups. The LZX stuff looks amazing for this but I'm planning to DIY it, some simple Composite to VGA hacks i've tried in the past will lend them well to converting analog video to seperate RGB signals to be wrecked by other modules then recombined :)

That's an extremely interesting area I haven't explored at all but I'd rather not do so as I think I have enough nerdy and time-consuming interests at the moment. It does look amazing though.

 Would be interested to hear about people's experiences with DIYing modules from kits, good kits to start with etc. I seem to get the impression that more utilitarian modules like a simple VCA etc. would be relatively easy to DIY? After using VCV Rack extensively over the past few months I think I would like to put together a small (84-104 hp) flesh & bone system based around the MI Clouds. TALK TO ME, PEOPLE.

Yeah go for it. If you are a total beginner to soldering maybe start with something really simple like a passive mult or something

Eurorack kits seem a bit on the expensive side to me but there is usually the option to buy just the PCB and the front panel then source your own components, which would make sense for simpler builds.
A couple of stores dedicated to this approach: http://www.frequencycentral.co.uk/ https://pushermanproductions.com/

kits in general https://www.thonk.co.uk/ https://modularaddict.com/ etc etc
