Serge Resonant EQ and Wave Multipliers 2022

The Serge Wave Multipliers, one of the essential modules of a Serge Modular system, dynamically process the input waveform to produce new harmonically-related overtones. According to the 1982 catalog, "The nearest we can come to describing the unique sound qualities (there are three different sections) is to say that they alter the timbre in exciting new ways, producing interesting alternative forms of signal processing which are unique in the Serge Modular Music System. Since there are three entirely separate and different types of Wave Multipliers in this module, an enormously varied palette of new effects can be synthesized."

The 2022 version in this module is a slightly new take: the top section contains only the non-linear mode of the VCA, but extended by a AC / DC switch for the incoming signal: when sending unipolar signals in (e.g. the regular output of a DSG), the signal is either treated as unipolar (0V to 5V) or bipolar (without offset), leading to different "compressed" waveforms. Middle and Bottom sections now have CV attenuators for maximum control.

Again to quote the catalog: "The Serge Resonant Equalizer (EQ) is a unique ten-band filter designed specifically for electronic sound synthesis and processing. Except for the top and bottom frequency bands, all other bands are spaced at an interval of a major seventh. This non-standard spacing avoids the very common effect of an accentuated resonance in one key, as will be the effect from graphic equalizers with octave or third-octave spacing between bands. Spacing by octaves will reinforce a regular overtone structure for one musical key, thereby producing regularly spaced formants accenting a particular tonality. The Resonant Equalizer's band spacing are much more interesting, producing formant peaks and valleys that are similar to those in acoustic instument sounds."
