Hi Eric

> Marc--thanks for trying tubes!

It is  really a pleasure to "play" with tubes and i love the challenge !
Now i am thinking about a modular ...

May be a good idea, but are they still produced?
The only one i have are "vintages" ...I have started a collection...Anyway
they are Magic !

Absolutly :) Tube synth sound is very different from solid state. It is
exactly  the kind of sound i love and i was looking for ! Fat,dense, a real
character who make those modules inimitable :)  I love the increasing
amount of distorsion when the VCA is close to mute position. The VCO sweepy
response, and the waveform morphing from square (lo pitch) to saw/tri (hi
pitch) is great  !

Thanks !

Best Regards
