Laboratory VCA

The third module in the Laboratory line is this versatile stereo voltage controlled amplifier with some unique features. You can process a stereo sound or any two signals, whether audio or control. The FIXED CV knob when turned to the right causes the VCA to leak the signal through. Turning it to the left introduces negative bias to the control signal, thus burying the VCA’s onset. This makes the tails of envelopes sound more abrupt, yielding a more gated character rather than a natural fade. Instead of a linear / exponential switch, the response character is continuously adjustable with the RESPONSE knob. Whenever linear is too boring and exponential too abrupt, somewhere in the middle is always just right.
