Another option would be to buy a lowpass and highpass from a brand like
Doepfer and use them in serial.  Voltage control of bandwidth could be
accomplished by using a single CV for both CV inputs but inverted for one of
them.  That signal could be an LFO, ADSR, or anything.  The other CV inputs
could take a single multiplied voltage as from an ADSR or whatever.  Given
the price of Doepfer filters, we're not talking about such an expensive
proposition.  $92 for an A-120 lowpass, $111 for an A-123 highpass (but
probably better to get two A-121 multimodes at $123 each -- -12dB slopes and
lots more options).  An A-175 dual voltage inverter is only $49.  Altogether
you're talking around $300.

At any rate there's no such thing as a $450 anything from Serge per se, is
there?  You'd need to find about $2000 worth of buddy modules to fill out
the panel.
