Serge Modular Synthesizer: GTO - simple patch as dual VCO

video upload by fonitronik

"The GTO is Serge Tcherepnins latest module design. It is the successor of the SSG, but not only. It is a complete new circuit design that can do everything the SSG did, but better and more.
This simple patch shows how both sides can now be used as VCOs with a 1V/Oct input.
BTW I modified my GTO to have banana sockts instaed of 3.5mm jacks."

SERGE modular synthesizer at Superbooth21

video upload by fonitronik

"I am sorry for the crappy phone audio. Alas, I had no option to record the audio seperately. Nonetheless, here you can see and walk into the SERGE mountain cabin at the Superbooth21 in Berlin.

This years SB has been a special event due to the Covid restrictions. Nonetheles, Andreas Schneider and his team accomplished an awesome job and were able to host a very special event, more intimate than usual, with many good vibes!"

SOST - envelope follower

Published on Feb 25, 2019 fonitronik

"Here the SOST is modulated by it's internal envelope follower and some use of the bounce function.
The input signal is nothing but a gated square wave, while the gate does not close entirely."

JHaible Son of Storm Tide Flanger (SOST) 4U Serge-format test

Published on Feb 21, 2019 fonitronik

"Here I just try a simple chorus and a simple Flanger setting, without bouncing and/or envelope follower. I feed the SOST my latest Serge patch."

"Trying two incarnations of the ADC controlled Sequencer in 4U, the Defibirlator (CV version) and the MorseMan (trigger version).
Not a very creative patch, though."


Note eurorack is 3U. This is 4U. U refers to the height with 1U being your standard slim rackmount synth or effects unit. The modular world has become so saturated I realize I haven't even been differentiating 4U on the site. I actually don't have time to, so essentially whatever goes up in the description for videos goes up on the site. Be sure to include what you want in your descriptions! And if you want active links support the site! Creating every single link in every single post adds up quick, so only supporters get them now. That or my fingers will fall off, and that's not good for playing my synths. :)

Serge TKB by Random*Source, patch example #3

Published on Aug 27, 2018 fonitronik

"Today I used to TKB to control chord progressions with 3 of the 4 CV rows, and to play a solo voice with the keyboard, using it's semi-tone voltages and pressure voltage.
In the beginning Sequencer and Keyboard are connected (programmer), later they are disconnected while the Sequencer receives a clock."

Serge TKB by Random*Source, patch example #1

Published on Aug 25, 2018 fonitronik

"A simple patch idea for the new Serge TKB by Random*Source. It uses the internal glide function (row B controlls amount of glide for each step of row A) and the pre-tuned semi tone scale of the keyboard that could be used indeendently from the 4 sequencer rows.

With the internal PSU and the super slim boat (rack mountable) this epic module is the classic Serge controller to put in front of your eurorack modular."

Serge Exercise (ResEQ Percussion)

Published on Feb 4, 2018 fonitronik

"This is not a proper track. This is just an excercise to create percussions with the ResEQ and the DIVIDE AND COMPARE module (Serge Modular by Random*Source). I just used the pulse divider and the boolean logic, N-COM was not involved. But i addad a percussion/synthvoice using the VCFQ and a drone voice using the dual 555 VCOs and the VCFS."

Fonitronik 4U ADC Sequencer (Proof of Life)

Published on Aug 18, 2016 fonitronik

"This is just a short proof of life of my 4U ADC Pattern Sequencer in Serge format. It runs in it's basic mode.
1st step is set to always ON, whereas steps 2-7 are controlled by the ADC. The ADC gets a voltage from the DUSG (LFO) and converts it to an 8-bit word that corresponds with the 8 steps (=pattern). The ADCs 8-bit pattern is loaded by a latch (triggered by a division of the clock signal).

The sequencer is controlling a Thomas Henry VCO 555 (CV) and a LPG 292C (trigger), whereas the DUSG (LFO) is changing the PW of the clock as well.

BTW the clock is PWM'd, and the trigger output of the sequencer follows the clock signals pulse width, this the changes in the LPGs opening times ;P"
