Tried them out today, they are great !!! Sean, thanks for developing them !!!
I recommend to all AlsaModular-users to give them a try. I know from my real 
analogue synths that Hard Sync is very useful for designing cool sounds. So
I'm very happy that this is available now in software as well. I hope to soon 
find the time to do some larger patches with the blepVCO's.
