Nice video. there are a few things here that I didn’t know about, including pulses which i must have overlooked when I started out with VCV. I have a couple of questions:
What does the DC toggle on Amalgam actually do?
I get clicking with Vactrol. Am I doing something wrong?
thx

thanks! and thanks for the answers

  1. DC button in Amalgam allows you input a positive voltage signal, a CV signal (SquinkyLabs Waveshaper also has such button).
  2. I also get clicking with Vactrol in some situations after recording of this video. Especially with low pitched stuff. I don’t know how this thing really works. We need to ask Skylights himself. I’m also very interesting.

I’ve opened a ticket on Github ref: The Vactrol ‘clicking’ issue
