Anyone know how this compares with the TipTop audio Z2040, worlds apart?

Yes, for the most part they are nothing alike. This one's 2-pole, the Z2040 is 4. This one's made from discrete hand-matched transistors, Tiptop uses LM13700 OTAs. They're no more alike than any two given filters, really. (It's been a while since I owned a Z2040, so forgive me if this isn't a detailed comparison!)

The closest cousin in Euroland would be Paul's E440, although again, still a different animal. (4p vs 2, although at least his is made from transistors like mine.) I'm yet to acquire a '440 so I can't give any firsthand accounts of the difference.

Can the SVVCF do formant synthesis-type sounds? Like the AHs and the OHs.

Not really my area of expertise, but it does take FM modulation quite nicely.

Yep! Plenty in stock. No plans to stop carrying these whatsoever. They remain quite popular.

so I finally built my two, from the first boards.
One is fine, the other gets no signal from the MIX+ IN, Audio 3 IN and v/o IN.

really weird, just curious if anything is in common with those three ins?

they do sound fantastic!!! THANKS!!!!

Tried to find a BOM and any DIY documentation without success, did I miss any obvious links? (checked website and this thread)

Also, would be cool to have a full kit option 8-)
