Erica Synths Polivoks VCO - DIY Build

ES VCO - Boards 1

Erica Synths have been around for awhile and while most of their previous offerings in the modular world were fully built modules, they do have some DIY kits. The Erica Synths Polivoks VCO or Voltage Controlled Oscillator is one of those modules. 

The core of this VCO is borrowed from the famous Russian synth Polivoks VCO, and original matched transistor IC is the same of that was used in Polivoks. These two things give this VCO a very well rounded and beefy sound. (We liked it so much we have 2 of these). 

The gang over at Synthrotek have made these kits available in all their entirety. They have several options available to purchase (links below), including a fully assembled module if you do not feel like building anything. We opted for the full DIY Kit as usual and began warming up or irons!
