Q148 VCA++ Packs Five Functions Into One 5U Module designer Roger Arrick has introduced the Q148 VCA++, a 5U module that combines a normal VCA, a left-right panner, a clipping monitor, a tuner, and a headphone amplifier all in a single-space module.

Arrick says that the Q148 VCA++ makes a great final output module for studio or live work.


  • The VCA offers both manual and voltage control. When patching in a control voltage, the VCA knob becomes an attenuator for the control voltage and becomes your volume control.
  • The panning section gives you manual or voltage control of where the sound goes – left and/or right.
  • The tuning section provides an A (440hz) or C (523hz) standard for setting oscillators.
  • An LED indicates when the signal is getting close to the natural clipping level of the internal circuits to prevent distortion and help you set proper levels for the best signal-to-noise ratio.
  • Stereo headphone amplifier with a volume control.

Pricing and Availability

The Q148 VCA++ module is available now for US $212.

  1. Nice to know the t-shirt Mr. Arrick is sporting shows he supports a right wing hate group that hides behind a pro law enforcement facade.

    Guess I wont be purchasing dotcom in this lifetime.

  2. It’s an American flag with a blue line. I bought this tshirt in support of the police who were murdered by a sniper at a black lives matters march in Dallas last year.

    1. And the swastika is just few black lines tossed together. Research what you support.

      My $0.02 – No such thing as a “Blue” life. You choose to be a law enforcement officer. You do not choose how much melanin is in your skin.

      From the wiki for “Blue Lives Matter”

      Some critics of Blue Lives Matter claim that one’s job can never reach a deep identity significance and source of solidarity that one’s racial identity can.[14] Others claim black identity and history is constantly under threat of erasure while police officers do not face this threat.[14][15] Another source of criticism is police officers are typically respected and honored in communities while African Americans in urban areas are suspected of being thieves and freeloaders.[14][16][17] Finally, some claim supporters of Blue Lives Matter are intentionally or unintentionally supporting a system of discriminatory policing and racial profiling.[18][19]

      Some critics of Blue Lives Matter laws claim the laws are redundant as attacking or killing a police officer would already result in a harsher punishment than attacking a non-police officer.[20][21][22] Others, such as St. Martinville Police Chief, Calder Hebert, say these laws will make a resisting arrest a hate crime[2] which has drawn criticism as hate crimes are crimes in which victims are targeted because of identity-based characteristics such as race, sexual orientation, or gender.[3][23] Finally, the ACLU claims there is no evidence to suggest these laws will make police safer as violence against police officers is down.[24][5][6]
