BASTL Instruments Aikido

BASTL's Aikido module is a four-channel VCA with integrated sidechain, envelope followers, and intuitive normalization for effortless routing in the studio or for a performance. One of the coolest features is the Spectral Envelope follower that lets you choose treble, mids, and bass frequencies for the envelope follower to listen to, which allows for a more interesting voltage extraction. A standard envelope follower output is also preset for standard, no-frequencies-barred CV generation. If you need a flexible VCA with options aplenty, BASTL's Aikido might be what you need.
