Howdy forum!

Super has some new modules up for sale. First up is VCAs:

VCAs: 12HP Quad Linear Voltage Controlled Amplifier and Mixer

4 clean VCAs based on the V2164, with normalling connections to support any combo of channels as a mixer.

http://www.supersynthesis.com/products/vcas

Text from our website!

VCAs is four Linear Voltage Controlled Amplifiers. Each channel consists of:

20mm slider for initial gain
DC coupled signal input
latching push button to invert signal input
0-5V linear control voltage input
bi-color LED indicating signal amplitude and polarity
DC coupled signal output
The input jacks can be normalled to 0V or 5V, selected by the jumper on the back of the module (5V-NRML)

The arrows on the panel between output jacks indicate VCAs' normalled mixing scheme. When a patch cable is not inserted into an output jack, that channel's output is mixed into the channel on its right. For example, when only patched out of the furthest right channel, VCAs will act as a 4 channel mixer. If patched out of the "second" and "fourth" channels, each pair (1&2, 3&4) acts as a 2 channel mixer.

These features together allow for standard VCA duties, voltage controlled mixing, positive and negative offset, and manual DC output.


These are some extra handy VCAs, and y'know, sliders w00t




PS! Super is looking for help with some demo videos of our modules. If this is something you're good at, we'd love to hear from you. send me a PM or email

Looks good!

Do the sliders act as manual VCA level (offset, bias, gain) control or cv attenuators?

^ Wondering the same. I've been looking for a mixer with sliders to add to my control case. This will probably be my next VCA, really like the features.

Also like your logo! Makes me think of the retro-futuristic OB-6, or Aperture Laboratories thumbs up

More modules with sliders please! Love this.

What is the hp width on this? This possibly could usurp the Erica Synths Quad VCA as my next purchase, simply because of sliders instead of knobs, as long as the width is the same size.

yep, the sliders act as manual VCA level.

You know it! Super is committed to slidey town, and will certainly keep you all posted w00t

I got my VCAs a few weeks back and I'm quite enamored with it. love The sliders feel great. The latching 'invert' buttons light up and the glow is quite soothing, haha.

I made a video highlighting how nifty the signal inversion is, and used it to demonstrate audio ducking:

Reviving a dead thread!

I'm having trouble visualizing why you would need the input jack normalled to 5v. Is it so that you can use the module as an offset generator up to 5v? If thats the case why would you ever want it to normal to 0v then?
