Buchla Systems and Serge Modular Music Systems are considered by many to
be the two ultimate voltage control synthesizers of all times. Until 2004, I
was the proud
owner of a Serge System '81 prototype (left) and a Serge System'79 with
Touchboard and 64 steps sequencer (right and bottom). Alas, due to unforeseen
cicumstances, I had to sell these two systems which I had for nearly 25 years!
It featured: 5 VCO, 9 Wave Multipliers(wave tables generators), 1 Ring Modulator,
3 VCF (2 variable Q and one variable slope), 10 Slope Generators (LFO/ Clock/
Envelope shapers), 10 VCA, 1 Mix (2x4in to 2 out), 2 mini-sequencers (4x7
steps and 2x10 steps) and one Touchboard/64 steps sequencer.
Also, there was a pre-amp and envelope follower, a white and pink noise generator,
a Sample and Hold and a Smooth and Stepped generator, two programmable divide
by :n counters, Schmitt triggers and much much more...
