Happy Nerding 3x VCA 1/2: Demo, Overview, Mixing, and Enveloping

Published on Sep 20, 2017 Learning Modular

"This is the first of two movies on the Happy Nerding 3x VCA – three linear VCAs with bipolar attenuators (“attenuverters”) and offset controls as well as internal mixing in just 6 hp of space. This movie focuses on using VCAs for normal enveloped amplitude duties, as well as voltage-controlled mixing in a performance context. The video breaks down like this:

0:00 live mixing performance demo
0:49 module overview
2:48 patch breakdown
4:10 voltage levels & response
6:04 voltage controlled mixing
8:45 summary

For more details about using the 3x VCA (including the second movie in the series, which is exclusive to my Patreon supporters), I encourage you to join the Learning Modular Patreon Tribe: For more on the Learning Modular Synthesis Eurorack Expansion Project for those exploring what module to add to their system next, visit"
