You've heard it a thousand times before: you can never have enough VCAs. But you also never can seem to have enough rack space, either!

Finally, an acceptable compromise exists. The Herzlich Pia Mater is a passive VCA-type circuit, known as the soft VCA, for its it's soft response and gentleness, particularly compared to it's Hard VCA counterpart. The circuit will touch your signals gently, sometimes firmly, as you use it as a VCA. The response ranges from slow to slothful, opening and closing with a gentle slew CV input, and responding more sluggishly to rapid CV changes.

As it is a passive circuit, the VCA veers into slightly experimental, occassionally glitchy and unpredictable territory - but mostly it's just a ton of fun. No super clean stuff here. On the other hand, it is powered entirely from the CV voltage input, and being suspended from your patch cables, no rack space and no power is required.

Also notice that the VCA does not amplify, as it's a passive circuit. Obviously. That won't prevent you from having a good time with the Pia Mater.

The Pia Mater - for when you need more VCA's.
