There's the mroztronium Trzypsy now too!

Electro-lobotomy does some great boxes I'm sure he'd probably do with bananas if you asked.

I'd like to know more about this too, please.

Folktek seems like it should play with CL stuff well, particularly the CQ when using fingers to bridge stuff, but I've yet to confirm this.

I don't have any Serge stuff myself (a bit too rich for my blood and I have zero DIY skills), but it is a fairly important part of electronic instrument history that's worth looking into at least a little- Peter B even gives Serge a shout-out, alongside ARP and Buchla, early on in the Plumbutter manual. The following quick paragraph from serge-fans.com seems like a decent summary, but I'd also include that Serge billed/bills itself as "Synthesizers for the People" and offered DIY kits to make electronic instruments more affordable compared to Buchla, Moog, etc in the 70's. Anyways, that paragraph:

"As Moog was a powerful East Coast influence that inspired ARP and Polyfusion, Buchla was the West Coast influence on Serge. Several Buchla designs, including the use of touch sensitive nontraditional keyboards, sequencers, random voltage generators, function generators, and matrix mixers found their way into Serge's repertoire. But that's not to say that Serge is merely a Buchla clone. Serge made many unique contributions, including the wave multiplier module, and some ideas were taken to new heights. Serge's oscillator designs have extraordinary accuracy and stability, especially considering their discrete nature. His philosophy of allowing the easy interplay of audio, control, and trigger signals, combined with the use of banana plugs, makes these systems wonderfully flexible."

Serge is banana, is more easily available than Buchla, sounds like pure electricity and has a very pleasing and logical aesthetic.
