  4. Get Six Channels of Clean Sound with the Zlob VnIcursal VCA: The Smallest VCA in Eurorack

    The Zlob VnIcursal VCA is a compact, 8HP module that offers 6 channels of OTA-based DC coupled linear VCAs for audio or CV, making it the smallest VCA in the Eurorack market. It doubles as a voltage-controlled mixer, with LED feedback on each channel's amount of gain. The latest VnIcursal version 666 has mostly resistor arrays, simplifying the build and reducing build time by 30-40%. It also reduces bleed and crosstalk issues sometimes present in previous versions. Although analog VCAs can experience some bleed or noise in certain situations, it is highly DIY-friendly and a great addition to any eurorack setup.

  8. Exploring the Creative Possibilities of the Abyss Devices LPG VCA Eurorack Module

    The Abyss Devices LPG VCA Eurorack module offers creative possibilities for sound sculpting with its dual passive LPG and vactrols in sockets. It comes with handmade vactrols made of carefully selected parts, which can be easily experimented with or DIYed by swapping them out of the sockets. The module also features a fall trimmer that controls the vactrol response curve and volume, allowing for a range of natural long vactrol response time to very short decay. Additionally, the module functions best with short triggers to produce a snappy sound, and an LED monitors the CV in socket signal. Inserting CV from LFO, ADSR, sequencers, and other sources into the CV in sockets allows it to be used as a VCA. Finally, the module has no power consumption and a muted output when no CV in signal is present.
