Coincidentally=2C I spent an hour last night making two x stereo to double =
mono cables so I could try out a Doepfer MCV4 to control my 202 (which has =
the Kenton sequencer bypass kit for cv =2C gate=2C filter and portamento)

I plugged it all in at just after midnight.

I got to bed at 0330am.

I need to research more cv mods for this beast. In many ways I prefer the 1=
01/202 for acid as its sound is less tiring on the ear than a 303.

I concur that adding a VCF CV input to route channel 2 back to the filter i=
s pretty great=2C gliding S+H action. I modded the 202 I used to own in pro=
bably 1996=2C and those instructions I used were posted here in 1995!
