VCAs are apparently in short supply in Toronto, I suppose there’s been a run on them. I had decided on a Malekko VCA and an Intellijel uVCA2, because they don’t take up much room, but then I saw the Bubblesound vca4p, which seemed ideal. Combination of lots of VCAs, small footprint and exp/lin switch. Only one catch, the output is inverted. No thanks. Frames is honestly more than I think I can use and takes up too much space for my little rack.
There’s the stg, which is linear only (I’m okay with that, prefer it over exponential anyways) but I would need to add attenuators. Then I found Dintree, that looks perfect but I’d need to build it myself from a schematic, something I am not currently knowledgeable enough to do. The designs are actually from Andrew Kilpatrick of Kilpatrick Audio, who I think is in Toronto. I don’t mind making a panel but I cannot find any PCBs for any of those designs, some of which look really handy.
Anyone else have any ideas for a small footprint, lin/exp, multi-VCA?
