Eurorack Germanium Fuzz Module. CV controllable Germanium Fuzz with selectable Diode Clipping Section

Named after the first two Stardogs to fly into space and return safely to earth, BELKA and STRELKA is a Germanium Fuzz module with selectable clipping modes and CV control over Gain Stages 1 and 2. BELKA and STRELKA features NOS Russian Germanium transistors in the gain stages and NOS Russian Germanium and Silicon diodes for clipping. The clipping section also features hard and soft LED clipping as well as a purposefully mis-biased transistor that sounds so squirrelly that we had no choice but to name it after the Stardog Belka (squirrel in Russian). The BELKA and STRELKA module also has an adjustable feedback function that blends a portion of the output straight back to the input of the module. Lastly, the Starve pushbutton, when pressed, disconnects the first gain stage from the +12VDC supply and lets it fizzle out as the charge on the starve capacitor discharges
