Major cool Dave. I will be trying this tomorrow night and reporting to the

Here's a thought: Suppose one wanted to add this mod to the VCO without
changing the circuit board. Looks to me like it could be tacked right on
the back of switch # 3 in series with the orange wire (although that would
not be the prettiest thing).

Paul, A CDR with audio from Dave B and Larry H MOTM set ups in in the
mail tomorrow morning. I will be burning it tonight. All the sampling is
already done.

MOTM-300s soft syncin' across a tuning range of up to 4 octaves. I'll tell
you what I found - your mileage may vary, of course. I'd like others to try
this - it's 100% safe since I didn't mod the VCOs at all.

not. Let's give Paul some data to work with. What resistances work for you
(or does adding resistance NOT work at all)? Please DO NOT mod your VCOs -
I don't want somebody to tear up a trace and I DON'T claim that this is the
permanent fix.
