no something new is in the air. Seems like he is intending to offer something substantially more than just a couple of modules. Might be a nice budget system option, or a cheaper way of bulking up an existing systems?

Nanas would be an important option for me - might just as well DIY otherwise.

But it looks very much like Serge is going to be available in both 4U and 3U with both commercial and DIY options!

Wonder what Rex thinks about this. Thought that he had some sort of rights to the designs?

im not giving any time table, but you will see "serge" brand euro rack modules and instrument pedals from me in the coming months. they are fully endorsed by serge tcherepnin himself, with royalties paid to him for his designs. good karma all around.

i will update the sergesynthesizers.com website when modules become available.

Bananas on a Eurorack module would be a design disaster IMO.

Which Serge modules would be advantageous in Euro format, now we have Maths, plus a plethora of filters, quality oscillators and wave folders?

The wad isn't gonna happen, if any semblance of it did, it won't be very close to the original, if they expect to make more than a few and euro friendly size price and depth wise.

Filters- what all euro filters have you compared which serge filters to?

I think the option to have them would be great, but imo the mechanical requirements for building euro modules to reasonable' widths/ depths and accomodate either would make this tricky.. Although, the jacks bananalogue currently uses have the same size mounting hole as Emerson bananas.. Dunno about the brand that sts uses.

Curious to see what's in store!

I havent heard any euro filters that have that stone/glassy sound the Serge has. I own many euro filters.

it is doeable though :-) Most of the time its fairly simple.

Here is my first modular system back in 2006-2007 I used it to enhance the Serge I had at the time.

Because every other Eurorack module is mini-jack.

I agree that the breadth in Euro filters is still quite narrow.
I can't say that I particularly desire another Serge filter. Nothing bad to say, but nothing outstanding either IMO.

I really like the Toppo filter (as an aside).

Just had confirmation from Ken Stone who is the maker of the PCB's that it will be euro format jacks ( no banana) Also no WAD impossible parts to get.

Well, that's a bummer. Being able to expand a Serge system in a more incremental way -- and with more distribution -- would seem to be a win to me.

I'd love to see the VCQF, all three sections of the Wav. Mult, and Random Source.

I think that statement requires qualification. What, exactly, are we missing? We've got 4-pole cascade filters, state-variable filters, MS-20 clones, diode ladder filters, wasp filters, polyvoks filters, SEM filters, voltage-controlled resonators, lowpass gates -- that's just what I could think of typing this response.
They always said I would be nothin' but a fishhead -- look at me now!
