Using a Doepfer A-143-1 to clock a Wogglebug:

I apologize in advance for what I'm sure is going to be a run of Wogglebug posts.

Mate, you *need* a voltage controlled envelope! That's when the fun *really* starts :)

The A-143-1 can be modded to take CVs from the Universal Vactrol module (forget the D-number), the A-142 is good and cheap but only does decay, the A-141 is a tad on the slow side, the Cwejman is tops but $$$. Best bet: hunt around for a Bananalogue VCS or, dare I say it, a Plan B Model 10. The Wogglebug loves VC A/D envelopes :)

I know it! I've seen VCSs occasionally pop up in the second-hand market on the forums from time to time, but they always go (a) fast and (b) for more $$ than I've got.

That said, CGS just released (or is releasing) a VCS PCB, which seems a little more reasonable on the wallet. Plus, I can practice my soldering!

The M10 is one of those modules that I didn't understand the complexity of when I first got into modulars ("it's just an AD envelope generator?"), but now do and very much want. It's on my "to buy" list-- not at the top (A-156 is next), but it's on there for sure.

Plan B has built itself a bad rep in the past 10-12 months, but ordering their stuff through BCM seems to be working out for people (i.e. they guarantee their modules, do repairs, etc.).

That said, if I could afford to go Cwejman, I'd go Cwejman!
