So, all the crapola going on in USA.. payroll tax going up in the fiscal cliff deal (super fail for working people), media regurgitating news about shootings new and old while real news slips through the cracks and all the routine fear based USA nonsense and what’s on my mind is eurorack modular synth modules and why they are all silver when they look so good in white (or other colors).
Manufacturers do put a splash of color here or there and some bands of color to space out a module’s functions etc but i’m always surprised when a poll or conversation starts on a forum (muffwiggler) that is centered around design and all the OCD types weigh in demanding the tyranny of silver faceplate to make for a uniform modular appearance for their rigs.. whatever.. i say go for some color. silver is boring.. i’m all for clean design and function over form but damn.. how about a nice black/white/etc faceplate now and then?
