RSF Modular Model 11

RSF Modular Model 11 Image

This is quite a rare analog modular synth and as a result, little is known about this classic analog. RSF is a French synthesizer company named after Ruben & Serge Fernandez. The Modular Model 11 is a towering modular system very similar to the common ARP 2600. Its basic specs are 3 oscillators in an analog monophonic synth which makes for some great bass, growls and blippy sounds. There's at least 1 LFO, VCF and VCA section with the classic sets of features for editing. A remote 61 note keyboard controls the Modular 11 via CV/Gate--no Midi here. There is a cool phaser effect for thickening your sounds for nice lead synths or wobbly sounds. It also has generous overdriven sounds and punchy ADSR and filter sections. It has 3 audio inputs which can be used to run external sounds through its filters and other modules. Pretty cool, but too rare to ever find.

If I met a girl like that I would do my best to get married to her!

trouble is there are no schematics for them and the french who built these scratched awway the names of the ICs...although I can bet they are CEM 3320s and/or SSM2044s and such...

I met a girl who owned a bunch of modular synths she had a Buchla 100, Arp 2500, Serge Modular, Bugbrand Modular, Chimera BC16, Aries 300, EML 400 with a 401, EML 101 and she even had this RSF Modular 11. I got to play around with her equipment for a bit, but I wasn't too good at it since all I can afford is software but besides the 2500 and the EML 400 the RSF Modular 11 was my most favorite modular she owned.
