THIS IS A FULL DIY KIT
It contains all components required for a complete build, right down to rack screws and power cable. We selected and used the high quality parts as specced by Random*Source. Random Source have created a step by step build doc for this project
SERGE MODULAR FOR EURORACK – Under licence from Serge Tcherepnin
“Serge Modular” is an analogue modular synthesizer system developed by French composer and electronic designer Serge Tcherepnin in the 1970s at The California Institute of the Arts. Serge’s vision to create a “people’s synthesizers” led to a unique modular music system with an iconic design.
In collaboration with and under licence from Serge Tcherepnin, Random*Source offers a range of Serge modules, combining the original Serge circuits with the advantages of today’s technology. The modules on this page are in Eurorack (3U) format – modules in the classic Serge dimension (“4U” panel height) and the typical banana jacks can be found here.
SERGE VARIABLE RESONANCE FILTER (VCFQ)
The Serge Extended Variable Resonance filter (VCFQ) is probably the most famous filter of the Serge system and one of the essential Serge modules. It is an excellent, extremely versatile general-purpose VCF that provides simultaneous low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch (band-reject) outputs combined with unique flexibility. Its trigger in, LOW mode and self osciallation allow a variety of uses from Oscillator to VC processing.
Now – for the first time ever and licenced by Serge – the VCFQ is available as DIY kit for Euro.
