  1. 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.
