Is this the Harris IC8038 - VCO chip with sine, tri, pulse? I've been given
a couple by one of our engineers, he thought they would be great for emusic
apps. I was planning to use one possibly as a VC/LFO for the tube synth.

Another subject: The FatMan produces V/Hz pitch CV output. This is
necessary as it's VCO's are essentially just linear response
voltage-to-current converters (current sourcing a relaxation oscillator).
Log CV is required for tempered pitch.
