Hey, I've got one of these on a kraftzwerg synth. I like it it's got some nice features for instance you can gate the VCA with an envelope and then modulate the gain level with an LFO at the same time, also the dual CV inputs make it ideal for some more complex forms of Ampletude Modulation and waveshaping. One thing I like to do with mine is fm it with a square or saw wave and then run a ringmod output into the upper input and then control the level of shaping with both the CV and Audio knobs. I would definitley reccomend this as a VCA and I might end up buying another one in the future.

Also the three audio inputs are a real plus. There aren't that many VCA's out there with the ammount of mixing that this one can do.

Thanks ex. Sounds like they're a good buy next to the doepfer modules.
Are they switchable exp/lin?

I have one and I like it a lot. It's very versatile as a primary VCA.
