Anushri -workings of audio input

bonjour à tous!
i tried to applicate anushri’s filter on my guitar’s signal and I noticed that it works only when the gate is high. It seems to be impossible to hear the audio input only. Is this normal?

thanks to the community!

Yes it is normal. The signal chain is VCO (or external input) > MIXER> VCF -> VCA. For the signal to be heard the VCA needs to be opened. Otherwise you would be hearing the oscillators all the time…

ohhh, i’m stupid, so sorry! thanks!
