Corsynth C108 Dual VCA
NoiseBug Price : $220
Old Hickory Nik says: "This VCA is different from the majority of VCA's out there... When an Exponential onset Attack stage from most ADSR's or Saw LFO's are presented to the CV IN on the C108, normal behavior is a Hammond B3/M3 style Percussion. To circumvent this, utilize an envelope with a (variable) Linear or Logarithmic Attack stage, such as the C106 Dual Voltage Controlled AD & More, set to anything but Exponential."
The C108 Dual VCA is a dual voltage controlled amplifier with selectable linear and exponential response.
VCAs are one of the most important modules in a modular synth. In addition to the more obvious use, that it’s volume control, a VCA allows to add voltage control to any modulation input helping to create more interesting and time evolving patches.
A signal input.
An initial gain control.
A voltage control input with a level potentiometer.
A switch to select the VCA response, linear or exponential.
The VCAs in this module are not only attenuators, they can also boost the input signal. Using the initial gain potentiometer and a five volts CV signal, the VCA has a maximum gain of 2 (doubles the signal amplitude). This is very useful for signal processing or to boost external signals.
The C108 Dual VCA is built using high quality electronic components, Switchcraft jacks, Cosmo knobs (the same used by Moog Modular) , anodized aluminum front panel.
