Voltage-controlled Amplifier (VCA)

An amplification circuit whose gain is controlled by an external voltage. VCAs are commonly used in synthesizers to create the volume envelope of sounds. VCAs are also commonly found as the level attenuation devices in compressors, companders and limiters. Some automated mixing consoles also make use of VCAs for controlling signal levels.
