Mutable Analysis

My favorite designer of modular modules is Mutables Instruments, for many different reasons: clean design, advanced features, open source licensing, and so on. With that in mind, I reviewed all their modules and compiled a summary analysis on this spreadsheet. Bottomline: clones of their entire lineup (Elements taken aside) could fit within 3 i8 modules, using 136-HP of horizontal space, versus the 156 that regular Eurorack modules would take. Bottomline: the i8 will not help you save horizontal space on your rack, but it will help you make things a lot more modular, and it will make it possible to migrate existing Eurorack modules to the Arduino shield form factor in order to get dynamic patching.
