r-57 dual vca preamp

R-57 Dual VCA Preamp

apparently, some people are not happy with the sound of metasonix modules. which "aren't loud enough". or something. so, we created the r-57. it's loud enough. it replaces the r-51 vca. however, if the r-51 could be compared to a rose-scented roll of premium extra-soft serviettes, by comparison the r-57 is a double wall of 20-grit sandpaper. rose-scented, even.

"this goes to eleven" my ass. this goes to heaven, and hell.

it's a dual vca. each channel can also be used as an instrument/mic preamp with up to 50+ db of gain available. it can be set for a sweet and happy clean sound, it can do some meaty tube distortion, or it can be set to rip your scalp off and pound your balls into a nice sausage meat to add to your lovely omelette. plus, the invert switch sets channel 2's cv to operate its vca oppositely to channel 1. that allows the r-57 to be used as a lovely stereo panner/crossfader.

beware. this is not intended to be a nice, neat, clean, sweet and virginal vca. it is what it is. it has a few warts and it will not reward idiotic usage. big hug!

power requirement: ±12v dc, 300 ma after warmup (800-850 ma cold startup is required for 3-5 seconds). tiptop uzeus and "happy ending" power supplies cannot run the r-57 and are not recommended. most doepfer®, monorocket®, analogue systems® and other third-party cabinets should have no trouble powering the r-57.
