This is an analogue mono-synthesiser based on the Octave Cat (late 70's). The original had a modulation system based on a pair of 3 way source switches and level knobs for each of VCO1, 2 and VCF. This made for a compact 'playable' front panel which still had a lot of modulation options. It did however prevent you from, for example, modulating the Filter frequency with both the ADSR & VCO1. I have taken the liberty of using an 8 way mixer for each of the three mod destinations instead (implementing the exact switch arrangement takes about 10% more resources for no benefit). Apart from that, the architecture is followed quite faithfully with simultaneous mixable waveforms, sync, xmod, re-trigger ADSR etc.
The PWM gets a few more mod sources, the original sine LFO or DC annoyed the hell out of me. The AR envelope can be switched to an AD type, another harmless improvement.
If your stuck without an editor, this one is quite good just to tweak from the front panel. Use the parameter overview tool to see where all the controls are located or just explore.

I never hat a CAT, and really just learned about them recently, but they seem like an excellent little synth. This is a nice patch. Lots of flexibility without changing cords.
