rene ms20 filter
Korg MS50 VCF clone

Looks like a good bit of work.  How did you make the PCB?

After a few problems and a freind trying to sort out the switchs on the mix section of the chip i found and update and sorted and now it works ... i have also updated the power supply as i had so much mains hum and i found it was the transformer so decided was easyer to just wire it so it runs of a 9v adaptor and works great .. also i add some graphic
here a update the project is done now looking at bending it later ...
