Carefull! Maybe this is a feature, not a shortcomming!  It is not
unlikely, that this amplitude drop also is part of the original instrument
sound. It's all tubes, and at times where tubes were expensive, one may
have ommitted the voltage control of the slave osc.

You don't need a vca if your slave osc. are a perfect copy of the master
but without own comparator. Then they will track.
