An updated version of my THAT2180 VCA module.


Unlike some others, this module is built around the THAT2180 Blackmer cell IC - I find it easier to use, and less prone to self-destruction, than the V2164. There are a couple of different versions of the THAT2180 (A and B) but unless you're looking for insanely low levels of THD the C variant gives the best bang for the buck, so that's what I've included.

Unlike the previous incarnation of the module, this one now sits behind a 4HP panel and the layout has been slimmed down a bit too; there's a signal in (obviously) and a single CV input with an associated attenuator. Should you need to perform any additional calibration, there's a trimpot on the rear of the module.

THIS IS A PCB/PANEL SET - the following parts are included:

  • THAT2180 VCA circuit board
  • THAT2180 VCA front panel (4HP, FR4)
  • THAT2180C IC
  • Power cable

It is up to you to source additional parts, build the module and calibrate the end result. You can find the full BOM and schematic at:
