A lot of additional functions are available as internal pin headers (e.g. VCO outputs, linear FM input for VCO, hard SYNC input for VCO, VCF outputs, LFO outputs, LFO connections for optional reset/direction features, ADSR outout, inverter input and output). Important note: warranty is void if a defect caused by wrong wiring of these additional pin headers is discovered !
