This is one of the most popular modular synth circuits and best sounding filters ever. Many manufacturers make their own versions with various additions but despite the fruit, all are based on the Don Buchla design. This one has been designed to perform as a very Low pass filter and has a different resonance circuit that is a little less hysterical than most. This circuit can really scream. The switch is used to change the circuit from a low pass filter into a gate, which is the ‘West Coast’ terminology for a VCA. The middle position of switch is supposed to be half filter & half VCA, for me it is not very interesting but many people like it.

Great, chewy sound, easy buildReview by Joel
I really like the sound of this module. It has great rich quality you really want to sink your teeth into. I find that, built stock, the pot has a very narrow sweetspot in the sweep. It's tunable to a degree with the trimmer, but I would appreciate a bit more fine control. Modulation CV also needs to be attenuated pretty heavily if you want the cutoff to stay in an audible range. But I'm not complaining -- I suspect that these are character quirks in the circuit, and not really flaws. (Posted on 3/12/2018)
