1V/OCT The Centre, New Serum-Inspired Eurorack Wavetable Synth Module


1V/Oct has launched a Kickstarter project to fund production of a new Eurorack wavetable synth module, The Centre.


Software synths often pay homage to hardware ones but, The Centre is a Eurorack module that turns this idea on its head by taking inspiration from a VST plugin – Xfer Records’ Serum.


Could this wavetable synth be the closest you will get to a Eurorack version of Serum?


It became life as a prototype wavetable oscillator, but has ended up as a fully-fledged synth with LFOs, LFO shapes, envelopes, digital filters, voltage-controlled amps and effects.


Developer 1V/OCT says that, while it doesn’t try to mimic Serum, The Centre has a similar sound, and can import Serum and Dune 2 compatible wavetables.




  • Polyphony (up to 4 voices of polyphony all controlled independently from V/OCT inputs)
  • Wavetable Oscillator with Unison/Detune/Warp
  • LFO with Sine, Square and Triangle output that can be freely controlled
  • VCO standard high resolution oscillators with Sine, Square and Triangle
  • Low Frequency Shaper – Shapes – shapes for low frequency modulations (Serum file-format shapes can be imported)
  • AHDSR Envelope
  • Filters (Bi-Quad and Diode Ladder)
  • Drum Racks – MIDI powered drum sets playing sampled drums
  • Sample playback controlled by Gate or MIDI
  • Clocks, MIDI clocks, gate dividers
  • Ring Modulator
  • Wave Folder
  • Digital VCA – Voltage Controlled Amplifier
  • Simple Multiband Compressor
  • 3-Band Equalizer


The Centre is available to project backers as a Eurorack module or as a compact semi-modular synth. It is available to project backers, starting at about $390.
