Verbos is the obvious answer to me too. Althouh I agree that a full R*S systems looks gorg' but Verbos looks the best, from the thick panels to the big buchla knobs to the spacing and excellent layout of every module. The design philosphy really translates into the music. Open ended, incredible sounding, and the modules available makes for a great complete system.
This. The aesthetics of the 4U Serge system are some of the best IMO, but the euro iterations don't really do them justice. The 8 row grid was a carryover from the paperface/kit days when panels were pre-drilled and customers could choose the arrangement of modules they wanted on panel. The circuits are all designed to fit nicely into this grid, not the 5 row euro grid. Through serendipity, some actually look pretty good but the rest look squished and (appropriately) random. The circuits are exactly the same as the 4U systems too, voltage standards and all, so don't play as nicely with others as they do with themselves. The only advantage of a full euro system (besides physical size) is the fact that, unlike the 4U 4x4 system, the modules are separated and therefore truly modular.xonetacular wrote: ↑Sun Feb 02, 2020 4:03 pmIf you are going to do a single maker RS serge system why bother with euro? Just get the full size 4x4 modules and panels the ergonomics and aesthetics are way better, bananas, and it's not much more expensive. The euro modules just look squished and have a kinda weird layout in comparison.
