In any case they do not sound more 'vco' then the dco's from the Schmidt

Re: LinnDrum LM-2 clone in progress

Well,well,..that's is cool,...but its the LM-1 you should have chosen.

An LM-1 clone you will be able to exploit it to the max and sell much easier (also to collectors!) VS the 'less desirable' LM-2.

I’ve not A/B’d them with originals, but the Xvive ICs sound great in the Oakley ADR30 delay I built.
From the six i ever bought i had to throw away 5 ,that noisy they were VS MN3005 :/

Depending on how you tweak the compander circuit you can get different results.
I believe the post is "hinting at" an SMD version in (Euro? 4U?)
SMD,definitely i would also call it a 'malfunction' lol :lol:

Re: SSM2056

Be careful with SSM2056 (and SSM2050) when you use the ADSR CV controls inputs at the same time.

Best not to use for diy project unless you have a big stock of them.
