Haven't used one,
but judging from the specs it seems a little dissappointing that a standalone LFO module only goes up to 275hz....

Pretty expensive, too.

Yeah, the price put me off completely.

Especially considering the same thing could be built with ONE XR2207 (or XR2209 or XR8038), a couple opamps for voltage mixers/buffers, and a few pots and switches.

Only thing is, apparently these guys didn't build it that way, otherwise it would have a minimum range of 0.01Hz to 200Mhz. Oh, and it could be voltage-controlled itself.

Hmm, maybe I'd better get the breadboard out... :ugeek:

A Moog CP-251 would do the same thing (albeit with a slower frequency) and even more for less money.
