VCA2 inoperable

Setting up a patch in Modular V3 3.12.0 (AU) where I’ve got the first osc controller doing one thing and the second osc controller doing another. I want different decays on each and so I’ve got FILTER 1 and FILTER 2 going to each of VCA 1 and VCA 2. Problem is, VCA 2 is simply dead. I can reroute the second osc controller’s osc’s output through either FILTER 1 or FILTER 2 and connect whichever of those to VCA 1 and I hear the expected output but VCA 2 simply doesn’t pass anything. Yes, both VCAs 1 and 2 are set to Keyboard Trigger On.

Problems with VCA 2 seem to go back at least sixteen years (here and here).

I’m attaching the patch file for reference.

In that preset, the volume of VCA2 is turned all the way down. When I turn it up, I hear both voices.

Where on the panel does VCA 2 turn up/down?
