hello db+

Phase is not a continuous control input for the current oscillators. It can
only be set by calling set(). You cannot connect to a phase input.  More
discussion here:


Instead of doing phase modulation, you could do frequency modulation. It is
different but you can get similar effects. Perhaps because the derivative of
a sine wave is a cosine wave which is sonically equivalent.
