Introducing the Pico EF Envelope Follower and preamp and the Pico VCA2 two-channel voltage-controlled amplifier.
No mess, no fuss, put in an audio signal and out comes a voltage following the volume envelope of the sound plus a Gate every time the level crosses a threshold. The threshold can be set with a knob along with the gain for the input which can provide up to +40dB which is plenty for guitar or a dynamic microphone. There’s an output for that as well and the possibility of a bit of overdrive. You also have an adjustable attack time to better match the feel of the input.
Not terribly exciting but certainly useful the new VCA2 squeezes in 2 channels of voltage-controlled amplification with a bit of manual bias on the top VCA. The inputs are normalled to the second VCA so you could use it as a splitter. It’s DC coupled so will take audio or CV. Just what you need in a little system.
The Pico EF and Pico VCA2 are available now and priced at €95 and €85 respectively.
