VCF-1 Kit


In stock

SKU: VCF-1-K Category:


This kit contains all components, PCB and front panel to build the Vactrol VCF-1. A 12db Low-Pass filter with a unique character.  The vactrols are DIY as well, it’s easy and gives a unique character to the filter.

The build guide can be found here.

This is a kit, not a fully build product — think of it as IKEA for the modular – and requires you to know how to handle a soldering iron as well as having basic knowledge identifying and orientating electrical components. Some soldering experience is recommended. It’s not a complex build, and easy to troubleshoot, so it’s certainly suitable for DIY startes.

What you’ll be needing to build this successfully:

  • A soldering iron
  • Some solder
  • Wire cutters
  • Wire stripper
  • A multimeter isn’t necessary but can be handy to verify resistor values.
  • An oscilloscope isn’t necessary, the filter can be easily tuned by ear, but it feels way more ‘pro’ using a scope.
  • An Eurorack compatible power supply (+12v/-12v)

Built time: Approx. 30 minutes to 1 hour.
