nant frequency can be swept over a 1000:1 range. At IC1, three are current-controlled integrators. At IC2, four are voltage followers that serve to buffer the high-impedance outputs of the integrators. A third CA3080 (IC5) is used to control the Q factor of the filter. The resonant frequency of the filter is linearly proportional to /abc· Hence, this unit is very useful in producing electronic music. Two outputs are produced: a low-pass and a bandpass response.
