If Rex would drop some dough and get a proper website with purchase options, he'd have a lot more orders for Serge. I have lusted after Serge for quite some time. The prospect of having it in euro amazes me.

Calling some random phone number you find on the internet is not a good way to sell synthesizers.

Does it work for him? How do we know? I've heard differently.

What I've heard years ago is it's an excellent filter. Calling him he can figure out who needs that extra info to likely order something and who's just collecting info and can email questions that require complex answers

I spoke with Rex a few times and I specifically asked him about this. He said "absolutely not". He then went on to speak about complete systems designed to work together as opposed to a bunch of shit thrown together and that he didn't want to be a part of the "mess". Well who really knows for sure? That's just what Rex said to me at that time.

Serge still owns the designs. That is why CGS and Bananalogue (and presumably Doepfer in time) pay royalties to him and not Rex.

As for Rex's arrangement with Serge :despair: , it is their private business. Perhaps it may be fun if we all speculate on that for a while :whistle:

I've asked Rex on a few occasions that question and offered to contribute to an STS site.. basically he's absolutely not interested in what other manufacturers are doing and hence, does not see anyone as competition (.. not being part of the mess..).. as far as the orders are concerned, he says there's enough work to keep the entire team happy and busy and is not really interested in going "main stream" as it would compromise the quality and complicate things.. (imagine mass producing panels by hand.. bradding all the wires.. etc..)

.. bottom line is that he prefers to deal with client personally over the phone (or email at worst) and he won't compromise his manufacturing and work standards.. there's also the "if it aint broken, dont fix it" standpoint

If these become available at a reasonable price point, it may be what finally gets me to switch to a euro system.

Was this totally overlooked in the discussion?

I don't think the Seth Serge euro is going to happen any time soon.
