||Chocolate Flavored Frac?
|Can Y'all recommend a Frac semimodular with solid character. Everything I've heard in Frac thusfar is fairly vanilla.
|Really it's about how you patch it. Patch things to sound "vanilla" and they will. Patch them not to and they won't. Maybe give some ideas/examples of what a "solid character" sounds like to help people give some recommendations
But, if I was looking at (new) Frac these days I wouldn't get far past the Bugbrand Synth Voice panels.
Check the Bugbrand sub-forum for lots of sound examples.
|Frac. semimodular.... can't think of even one.
get a FR XS.

|The only thing I'm aware of is the Steiner Microcon, which is available in a variety of formats incl frac, although I think just as a kit. It certainly has "character" but is also a bit odd & may not be to all tastes.
|Technically, you could assemble a SEMI-modular by selecting individual modules and interconnecting them on the back side via the normals (switching jacks).
[This would not work with a banana system.]
and different styles of patching
will get you away from vanilla.
You might even stop by for some french vanilla
on your way to rocky road.
There are a lot of character modules in Frac.
I'm not sure what you would equate to chocolate (Moog Ladder?).
Patching the GX-1 filter (high-pass) into Moog (low-pass) in series gives you a super bandpass with lots of variable flavor control.
Similar internal filter patching (rotary switch) on the Threeler
yields another pallet of sound flavors/colors.
|Vanilla comes from exotic orchids.
|The Evenfall Minimodular is 3U, 19" including ears, and runs on +/-15V and was designed by musician & long time Serge user Chris MacDonald with help from Grant Richter. Guess that's as close to your criteria as it gets. It has a waveshaper, which in theory should expand the sonic palette a lot compared to VCO-VCF-VCA modules or whatever you've tried out so far, but I have yet to hear it myself. A few of them came up for sale last year.
