I really doubt that, modular users have no choice, I have no choice with my OS, you have no choice with your SEM, same with hundreds of analogs that have no patch memory; and that's OK, they are what they are and we love'em for it; NONE of that undermines the benefit of patch memory though. Yes, we get around and appreciate the synths without it, again no choice, so we compromise and do our thing anyway but you still don't find yourself saying "god the cool thing about this is that I can't save" (and I admit that you buy a synth in spite of it not because of it) , you value the sound, the filter, the envelopes, etc., not the inability to save.
