A 4 channel mixing VCA with response curve and bias controls, and a +6dB gain boost switch. A lovechild of uVCA and Linix with a new trick up its sleeve? 12hp and costs $189.

More info here: https://intellijel.com/eurorack-modules/quad-vca/

Looks like it could be the new gold standard for intro rack VCA systems, especially if it can beat veils by taking up less than 12 hp. It looks about that big, though. There's also a mysterious switch behind the level knobs... what could that be? eek!

I think it's 12hp. The switch seems to be a gain boost switch so, MAYBE, this could be used to boost line level signals to the Eurorack level.

Do we need another Quad vca?

The continuous lin/exp transition shows up in relatively few modules and makes it worth it in my opinion for those who don't already have enough VCAS (which you can never REALLY have enough of, right?). Coming from a relatively large American Eurorack manufacturer, the killer detail here will likely be the name recognition and quality/cost ratio.

That would be MASSIVE w00t

Price, size and feature-wise this will likely compete with Veils (and possibly one-upping with bias control) but I think Linix will take the biggest hit from this.

Jeez, and for only $189. Maybe I should ditch my veils confused

If it distorts this will knock the Bubblesound VCA off my to buy list. VC mixer, VCA, Lin/exp sweep. Sign me up.

Well, Veils is an extremely clean VCA also with the capability of boosting line level signals to Euro and response curve controls so I wouldn't be so hasty ditching it before hearing the Quad VCA.

Of course, right when I am looking at getting more VCAs.

Intellijel is Canadian. Have to say, this looks pretty nice, but wont this basically kill the µVCA II at that price point?

Nope. Lots of HP conscious people out there, especially those of us who play out live a lot. I certainly won't be ditching mine.

Wait, is Canada not in North America anymore?... Just because you guys have a cool president now and we have.... doesn't mean your getting out of this fantastic fun club... this will be the happiest 4 years since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f#cking Kaye

??? We have a Prime Minister, not a president, lol

As for North America, not sure what you are getting at. If someone asks an Italian person where they are from, do they say Europe?

Moving on... Miley Cyrus

I understand the previous comments regarding the µVCA versus this Quad VCA as far as HP, but if you can get 4 VCAs in this for less than 2 µVCA's, I see it hurting that product sales a bit.

mighty nice feature set and good price.

VCAs w/o bias controls, however....die earthling.Dalek if you make me add offsets from MATHS, i'll be upset at you. Exxxcellent

OK, PRIME MINISTER... world leader is what I meant. People make mistakes, I'm a human being

I'm pretty sure the level knobs will be bias controls.
