A single M-Class, maybe not including the boat and power, depending on the M-odule.

The M-Class boats are $300, PS2a power is $225, according to http://www.serge-fans.com/m-class.cfm

you might try the serge yahoo forum, but since the serge custom panels were discontinued people tend to hold onto them

Is that VC or is it just a Dc-coupled matrix mixer for CVs?
(ha - just! - looks damn nice, especially with the polarizing!)

the specs look fan-fuckin-tastic (although 4x4 is a bit on the slim side) BUT the price-sticker always turns me off in the worst way!

I think it's a CV mixer - not a VC mixer!

Yeah, for example, you can get a Creature, boat and PS2a (which powers two boats) for $2024 + shipping.

yeah, the metalbox matrix mixer is *really* cool, but the conversion from frac->euro is a custom job.

Still, I'd MUCH rather get two metalbox units than that one m-odule.

Until the Metalbox Matrix Mixer was unveiled, I would've disagreed since where else could I find a Matrix Mixer. Now, I'd agree with you 100%. Not to mention, Michael will do it with banana jacks and in silver at no extra cost, I believe.

Yeah, why not get the Metalbox one?
Each channel can be switched between unipolar and bipolar.
It is even available as a kit!
Price kit: $195
Price assembled : $275

OR you could get boards directly from CGS.
http://www.cgs.synth.net/
I think a 4 channel unit would cost you $30 in pcbs and then you would have to source your own parts.
You could even add more channels to the same unit if you wanted to go to the trouble of wiring up extra inputs and buffers.

Actually, a single 6-channel mixer "strip" costs 3usd, so you're looking at 12 usd for a 4x6 matrix. Oh, and that could easily be 6x6 as well.

-but for ease of assembly and such, yeah, the "matrix mixer" boards are cool.

If I were going to start with only one M-odule, I'd probably pick the Mayhem or Gator. My second would be the Waveform Processor - I love wave shapers/folders/multipliers even more than I love low pass gates. :love:

Yep! Although the Quad LFO doesn't grab me, I'd get those digital oscillators, and the CV Recorder. Then build one of my 292c clone boards for a low pass gate!

Looks good on paper, now to dig up the currency :doh:
