Directly connected everything as the specs are the same as ae modular. Don't have pots yet, but my breadboards arrived today, so I had to do something. VCDO1 and VCLFO10 chips. Somehow the note input is reversed. Enjoy, I think they are cool.

Ha! That’s cool! I just received the same two ICs last week as well. Won’t have time to build something with them until September unfortunately, but I’ll stay tuned for your module creations in the meantime
Cool! I've got a while ago pentanoise and VCADSR. So far pentanoise is a super simple chip to use and it works well, but with VCADSR had some issues and it doesn't seem to be working at all, had checked soldering part a multiple times - no results.. I saw they finally got one shot event generators, was curious to get one and try it out, just need to find some free time. Altho I still have tap lfo chip laying around electricdruid.net/product/oneshot-event-generator/
Anyways, looking forward to see your further tests!
I am on vacation right now so the next week nothing will happen. But i'm still waiting for the potentiometers anyway. Made a circuit for V subtracting with an opamp as the vco needs 5 to 0V instead of 0 to 5V to get the right notes. Meanwhile I tested to print a first test for the frontplates.
Finally managed to solder another chip. It's Tap tempo LFO. And I love it! Here's a short video (sorry the volume is a bit low):
Love the idea of being able to tap tempo with a simple push button and - it has a random levels option! Other than that, this LFO has a lot of different waveforms: ramp up, ramp down, triangle, square, sine, sweep, random levels and random slopes. Control knobs: Frequency, waveform, Depth, Offset. Has an external sync option. Easy to build, simple schematics. Highly recommended.
