THAT VCA question

Greetings,

Can a THAT 2181 VCA be substituted for a 2180? I have looked at the data sheets. Aside from the fact that the 2180 is described as being "pre trimmed" and the 2181 is described as being "trimmable" i can find very little difference between them.

It's to close to call with my limited knowledge of the product so I seek your advice.

I'm building a ADSR/VCA.

Thanks a bunch!

Yes -
As far as I know, the only difference is that with one of them you can add an external 'trim' pot.

No. Although the reverse is probably true.

You need a trimmed part in the ADSR core. So you either do it with a 2180 and no trimming or a 2181 and trimming. No trimmers are provided on the board so unless you feel like adding a trimmer and a resistor or two, I'd stick with the 2180.
