Product information "Serge Modular - Paperface 50 System (Helios/TKB)"

The legendary Serge Paperface series is back and available for the 50th anniversary as "Paperface 50" reissue based on the original circuits. This System compiles the Helios Panel and the TKB.

Serge Tcherepnin, Rich Gold and Randy Cohen developed the first Serge Modular systems at the California Institute Of Arts in the early seventies and sold the "Tcherepnins" out of its garage, it was like the famous "jump into cold water" for the three developers. 50 years later, the legendary Paperface series from 72/73 returns with the original circuits. Serge Tcherepnin himself added and updated the VCOs with temperature compensated 1/V-octave inputs, PWM, a new metronomic clock and balanced outputs.

The Serge Paperface 50 system consists of two panels. One of them is the powerful Serge Helios panel. It delivers the brute-force, sometimes boisterous Serge sound in fresh perfection and provides an exciting basis for experimental sonic adventures. The Serge redesign of the two VCOs from 1973 offers temperature compensation as well as exceptional tracking over six (+) octaves. The Oscillator+ also features a pulse output with pulse width modulation.

Beside the Helios-Voice the Random Source Serge TKB ("Touch Activated Keyboard Sequencer") finds place in the system. This is the refined version of the famous combination of touch keyboard, 16-step sequencer and programmer that first saw the light of day in 1976. The TKB consists of a touch-sensitive (capacitive) keyboard, four knobs per stage and a total of 30 patch points for flexible programmability and integration into existing setups. In addition to the original functionality, the following special features can be found, among others: Glide function (when on, row B controls the amount of glide for output A), Buffered gate outputs, LEDs to indicate vertical stage, vertical reset, KEY V-output calibrated to semitones, note priority (optional), maximum sensitivity/smooth pressure output.

Both panels are manufactured in a super-slim boat with noble wooden side panel finish and are delivered pre-calibrated. Power is supplied via Mobile PSU power supply including Meanwell AC/DC adapter (please do not use any other adapter!) and XLR-4 cable (all included).

  • Reissue of the legendary Serge Paperface system consisting of Serge TKB-Sequencer (Panel 1) and Serge Helios-Voice (Panel 2).
