Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

I tried a search for this, but to no avail...

My Boogie, with cutoff all the way down (ccw) and res all the way down (ccw), still lets a bit of sound through. Never seems to fully "close".

This is regardless of which output is used.

Normal?

No. It should be completely silent.

I'm no expert, but at a guess, could this be a faulty vactrol?

lag progress posted about leaky 6dB and 12dB

The 6dB out on my Boogie closes after a short gate in but there is a tail of low level signal which fades over 4-5 seconds.
I'm supposing this is not normal behaviour. Any comments?

The 6dB output on mine leaks slightly as well - not much, but it's there. Never really bothered me that much tho...

The Malekko product description does say that there might be "bleedthru" from the 6dB out.
I think what I'm experiencing is not a constant low level leaking.

I'll check the outputs again later-maybe even a short vid.

The trimpot on the back will make it "close" more

m'kay, so yes, the trimpot does allow more "closure", however, it is clearly marked that if I move it, Josh will show up at my house and do bad things to me and mine. woah

Well, I did it anyway since he baited me to do so on a public forum. hihi

There is a clear balance here between having the 6db jack close all the way and sacrificing the nice throaty top end sizzle when opening the cutoff all the way...so, I ended up leaving it pretty near the stock setting as I am loathe to lose that lovely top!

All things withstanding, I publicly thank everyone and Josh for sharing the skinny.

How many of you find Borg 2 leaky in VCA mode?

I recall dieter saying that LPG leaking was typical of vactrols.

Currently i think mine is tuned well, since i can push the cutoff higher with CV than the panel pot will go. I wouldn't wish to tune the center frequency down any more.

If its normal to all borgs, cool.
