“Carnivore” combines three key Serge modules in only 4 inches: a Serge Smooth & Stepped Generator (SSG), a Serge Noise Source and a Dual Universal Slope Generator mk2 in a slim, oscillator-oriented version covering the functionality of what’s sometimes called “VC TIMEGEN” oscillator (and more). The SSG is a complex multi-functional module which can be patch pro- grammed to provide various slew and sample functions. The Serge Dual Universal Slope Generator (DSG) is probably the most versatile module of a Serge Modular system, incorporating a wide range of functions for both CV and audio. Serge Noise Source provides both white and pink noise waveforms as well as a S/H SRC that generates a special (“noisy”) waveform as an ideal input for Sammple & Hold functions to produce random voltages of equal probability.
The DSG mk2 version has been optimized for audio performance and speed/precision. The left side covers a frequency range up to more than 10kHz. It also offers improved tracking and some temperature compensation.
Some details of the Random*Source "Carnivore" module:
- SSG with improved audio rates and "hot" coupler out"
- DSG mk2 ("TimeGen Osc") with improved tracking (up to 4 octaves), temperature compensation, maximum separation between sides, using selected audiophile parts for superior audio performance (up to >10kHz)
- Serge Noise Source
- PCBs in SMT, manufactured in Germany
- 4x4 format (4U high - this is not Eurorack!)
