I'm kind of in the same position as Matt's previous post (sadly minus the
EML-101 and the MS-20). I'm at the opening stages of building/assembling a
modular system and I was wondering, if people wouldn't also mind stating (or
ranking) manufactures in the area of quality and cost effectiveness. I know
this can vary from module to module but perhaps people would be interested
in ranking manufacturer's (we could try a 1-5 Likert Scale, five being the
best, one the worst). For example, one might say that the price
effectiveness (i.e. cheapness) of Doepfer modules is 4.5 out of 5 and
quality of sound and construction is 3.5 out of 5. I know this isn't the
most scientific method but it may help fill some knowledge gaps.

I don't want to trash any body's products (especially those on this list),
but such info would be helpful to us modular newbies. I know this is all
subjective but I'm interested anyway. Thanks for your time and bandwidth
