After initial panic, I've spent some time on the jupiter and I found
that my
initial description was uncorrect:

Is not true that no one of the adsr2 parameters works, cause if I set
the vca
control amount to max, than Release works as a sort of aftertouch, cause
overall volume is near zero, and also Attack works (I hear a little
increase of volume, not just the "click" that I got when Attack is set
to 0. I
think that probably even Decay works, but I can't hear it cause the too
So: it looks like only the Sustain doesn't work (only one voice)..
Do you still think that could be a faulty IR3R01.?

Suggestions welcome!
