Even the best semi modular synths don´t reach the price of the equivalent Eurorack modules. Top semi modular synths like the Korg ARP 2600 cost a fraction and need less space and technical effort than their full modular brothers. And the structured front panels of semi modular synthesizers are regularly more workflow friendly than having to use a couple of patch cables before you even hear a sound at all.
