Due to many questions on how to properly use the EKO, we decided to make a video and a better explanation. Here is:

– EKO Rate CV accepts -5 / +5 voltages (although the negative range is almost -7)

– EKO Rate knob is setup to push the chip into extreme territory and will extend past the “useable” range of the PT2399 IC, meaning that once you turn the knob past 3 o’clock or so, the chip will stop operating and you’ll only hear your dry signal.

– Attenuation, attenuversion, or using an offset will greatly help when running voltages into the Rate CV input. This way, you can tailor the modulation as you see fit. You will absolutely get the most out of your EKO by using modules that attenuate, invert or offset your signal.
