Subject: Re: [motm] VCDO?

Before all you guys say yeah, definately do it, did you read Paul's first
paragraph? Perhaps VCDO quantities won't be so large as to really affect
3340 much, but those out of production chips are needed to repair a bunch of
existing analogs (plus are used in Doepfer hi-end VCO), and maybe someday the
very Synthtech VCDO will someday remain unrepairable do to lack of 3340s.
Seems like there are other ways to do it.

If it were used, I'd like to see the module also usable as a regular (VCO)
analog waveform source too.

However, I still don't fully understand the desire of those who want
wavetable oscillators. They give your nice sounding analog synth an annoying
sterile digital sound that chipmunks when the pitch changes. Also
samplers/wave editors are so much more flexible in that department anyway,
and can be played through an MOTM system. Just my thoughts from someone who
doesn't want any more delays of modules like the Low-End VCO, Mixer,
Multiples, Phaseshifter, VCADSR, Panner/Crossfader(<-please) !
