I (finally) completed my assembly of the sawbench synth and this is what I am experiencing:
The light chase sequence at the beginning happens as described but it takes almost a minute for the vco to calibrate and the LFO light to go on as opposed to a second. as described in the manual. Inputting midi from either a keyboard or sq-1, all I hear is a "thump" sound that is very drum like but there is no fluctuation of pitch. In general, none of the knobs are responsive to alter the sound other than VCA attack; if it is not in the far left position, there is no audio.
Besides re-checking my soldering, I am at a loss with where to start diagnosing this.
