This Serge Modular Music System SMMS Series 79 is part of the private collection of Moby.

Around 1979, a fourth generation of Serge modules started to appear, complimenting the 1976 modules and replacing some earlier modules. The current Serge panel graphics style also appeared around this time.

The new modules included: Active processor Resonant equalizer 4//6/7/8 step sequencer Divide/n comparator, dual comparator, Schmitt trigger, Wilson Analog Delay, Balanced modulator, Quantizer Frequency shifter, Quadrature oscillator, Dual VCA Envelope follower / preamp and N voice controller.

Also, new electronics were designed for the audio mixer/processor/scaling/buffering modules and the VCA/panners. The "paper face" panel graphics were replaced with metal-ized plastic film.

Throughout this period, systems were available built or as kits - boards supplied pre-built and tested but you wire the panels up yourself. In 1979, Serge offered a standard module configuration - the "System 79". The N voice controller was a polyphonic interface which worked with a modified Casio keyboard. Sadly it appeared around 1982, just before MIDI.

This rare and ultimately unique Serge synth is fully functioning in testing with wear consummate with this synths age. A truly wild and rare piece from Moby's personal collection. The belle of the ball.
