Hello,
I am new here, but already building a Yusynth VCO, almost done;
I cannot find OPA2137, but I have a OPA2134
looking at the datasheet it should be good enough, as far as I can understand, and very similar to the recommended OPA2137.
Any suggestion, please ?
thanks
Jaba (Paolo)

Sorry Yves,

I only ask because I found them elsewhere for about £5, i thought the farnell price was a bit cheap to be the right thing.

sorry

Dear Yves!
Could you please answer if LM358 will be compartible instead of TL072 (instead of much more expensive OPA aforesaid) in OSC (full low-cost for the first time Embarassed )

A LM358 will theoretically work but it is more bound to have offset, the fact is that the VCO will work with a LM358 but don't expect to achieve a good tracking over more than 4 or 5 octaves. The use of a high grade OPA insures an extended level of performance using a cheap LM358 will not.

In other words using a LM358 will result in a low grade though usable VCO, while using an OPA2137 will give a really good VCO.
