New Paperface Serge Re-issues from 73-75



via 73-75.com

"With the permission of Serge Tcherepnin we are relaunching the fabled paper face modular system from 1973. All functions and appearances remains the same as it did 44 years ago, staying true to the origin of Serge Modular Music Systems. The panel graphics has been carefully reproduced with all it’s amazing hieroglyphic properties. The old adhesive paper has been replaced by silkscreen print: the only improvement we’re willing to make. Even though the circuits are 40+ years old they still function and integrate perfectly with modern electronic music systems. Standard control voltages between 0-5V and triggers and gates within the same range, a remarkable feature given the evolution of electronics. A big plus with the Serge Modular Music System has always been it’s use of banana jacks and keeping both audio and control voltages at the same level, making it possible to interchange the different signals seamlessly. A slew generator can be both an LFO, a low pass filter and an oscillator and more thanks to this.

This fall we’re launching two sets of panels, followed by a third panel at the beginning next year. Panels are all mounted on a sleek aluminum chassi with internal PSU."


Voice

VCO, VCO, TWS, VCF, VCA, VCA, RING, ENV, ADP


Two oscillators, a wave shaper, filter and two voltage controlled amplifiers. It also includes a ring modulator and a very clever envelope generator. Rounding of with an adapter, making it possible to convert between banana jacks and 3.5mm.

Release date: Q3/Q4 2017
Target price: 9995 SEK (Incl VAT)


Control

NOI, POS, NEG, COM, PRC, SSG

Noise source for white, pink and a dirty saw, plus sample and hold. Positive and Negative slew, the fore runners of the Dual Universal Slope generators, can be everything from processors to oscillators. A Triple Comparator followed by the necessary Dual Processor. And last but not least a Smooth & Stepped function generator, the multi dimensional tool for your everyday patches.

Release date: Q3/Q4 2017
Target price: 9995 SEK (Incl VAT)

Preset

SEQ, PRG, TBS

A modular sequencer. Patch the sequencer to the programmer for a classic sequencer action or trigger it manually for presets. The Bi-directional router supports as a sequential switch, pulse divider, source selector etc. the possibilities are endless! A simplistic yet complex selection of modules.

Release date: Q1 2018
Target price: 8995 SEK (Incl VAT)

Homebuilt

VCO, TWS, P&T, COM, PRC, RING, GATE, PRVB
POS, NEG, ENV, ENV, ENV, ADP

A creative system that can hold its own or complement any future investments!

Release ~June 2017
Price 4500 SEK (Incl VAT)
