STS : It's probably easier to find some used models at a decent price. The Animal is powerful, but I'd recommend the Creature/Audio Interface setup if you can live without a waveshaper. Having a ResEQ and DUSG (over regular oscillators) makes it even more fun and flexible than the Animal in my humble opinion. Plus an extra VCA/comparator, plus a preamp detector... You really get the LEGO block experience of a Serge modular in a small setup.
There is a Creature/Audio Interface on Reverb right now too...
And a Blue Fun Station... :hihi:
Which looks like it's direct from Rex. Didn't know he was selling online. Too bad I'm still paying off the last batch of Serge I bought. There's also an Animoo, which is kind of tempting.

Yeah, keep an eye on Rex's Gear Locker. He puts things up from time to time and not always brand new panels or systems.

Those green Pomonas make it sound extra sweet.
