THIS IS A PCB/PANEL SET - you will need to source appropriate components to complete the build. It is assumed you know how to read a BOM and a schematic and troubleshoot any potential issues

This is a version of the Roland-inspired 'swing' single-transistor VCA that was used in the 808 drum machines and similar.

Don't expect high fidelity, because you won't get it, since the transistor will introduce some rectification and clipping into the input signal - that said, it does work really well on percussive patches and anything else where you want to dirty up the sound.
