Winner of the quad VCAs battle
Laura Palmer, 14.07.2020
It was hard to choose the right VCA for a very compact travel case.
The Nano ALT is literally the one module that could deliver the most features with the tiniest HP footprint. The build quality is fantastic, and it came with a set of Befaco's knurlies.
Ash I've called this the winner of the 'VCAs battle', let me mention the other modules that shared the podium with it, which will reveal the qualities of the NANO ALT.

-Silver medal goes to Malekko's Quad VCA. It has the same HP as our gold medalist, it has mutes (which is a big bonus), BUT you have to share two knobs for four different channels, not handy at all.

-Bronze medal goes to Intellijel's Quad Vca, its only fault being too big.

Conclusion:

If you need some VCAs and you don't have much space, ALT NANO is the module for you.

Good for it's size
raindeer, 03.08.2020
It's fine. Definitely does what it is supposed to in a small space. Obviously if you have three VC channels going in and out then that's going to be 9 patches cables all going into a tiny space, but that's what you get with a 8hp module. Cascading outputs is really useful.

I'm not sure what the maximum gain is but I would have preferred a greater range of amplification for mixing. As it is there does not seem to be a huge range between halfway and max.

Very satisfied
dokk, 07.05.2020
The article was shipped very fast.

Very helpful module, since you can mix 4 different inputs (audio or cv) but also because you can cv-modify (with attenuators) the inputs so to have interesting modulations.

The only drawback is that the 4th channel has no attenuators, but I already new it before buying.

Very good!
