VCF

Voltage controlled filter that I built for my techno rack. It’s based on “Korg late MS20 filter” by René Schmitz.

René explains in the description how to add the high pass input. I didn’t manage to make it a switch, so there are two separate inputs for high pass and low pass 🤷‍♂️

Then I accidentally found out that if I remove one of the diodes in the original design, the resonance gets a crunchy color (which I find particularly nice for bass voices). So I implemented this function with a switch: Soft and hard resonance.

What’s new? Optimized footprints, panel design and documentation.

Wait, there's more?
