Epicycloid Engineering - Voluptron

A stack of logarithms

The transistor and diode ladder VCFs have been around almost since the dawn of the synth era, but depended on precisely matched semiconductors, temperature control, and the occasional beating. With the right kind of nonlinearity, vacuum tubes can do the same thing but without the hammer.

The Voluptron has a 4-5 octave cutoff frequency range (or more if you're willing to go beyond the bounds of 1V/oct CV). Its resonance capability extends up to self-oscillation, and at lower frequencies the audio signal can adjust the cutoff slightly — FM synthesis with a vacuum tube circuit.
