Intermezzo:
I exchanged the jack sockets on my dotKom SVF filter, from the open jacks to new switchcraft enclosed jacks. Much better! That took some time, though: I'm sure the module was assembled in less time than I spent exchanging jacks. But it's a good filter and it still works after 13 years. Now I just have to do it on the rest of my modules with open type jacks. I've noticed that the number of jacks in a modular system quickly adds up.

Open jacks: Here you can buy them with nut and washing machine(!) :eek:
Some bad machine translating there.

Here are the VCAs finished: 4 modules, one built by Lower West Side Studios, but I've exchanged panel on that one so they all look the same. I've modified the panel graphics slightly. "Out A" is merely OUT and "out B" is DIFF. I was always wondering if you should use A or B (that is, untill I read the manual). Now I get the hint that DIFF is a difference signal.

PCB-side. Can you spot the one built by LWSS?

I've also finished the VC-ADSR! Looks really nice (I think). The design layout is of course inspired by the Moon VC-ADSR, which I find very intuitive. And I went crazy and used a blue led. Will probably change to red after a while.

Wiring on this module took some time:
