First thing to note is that these plugins were designed for use in AMS.
That means the the first 6 ports:

"Exp FM",
"Lin FM",

are audio rate and will show up in AMS as 'control voltage' inputs.
Audio rate here doesn't mean all samples are used and control is
at full audio rate. The inputs are all subsampled.

The others are real control rate:

"Exp FM gain",
"Lin FM gain",
"Form mod",
"LP filter"

and will show up as sliders in the plugin's module dialog.

The sync feature is not what you would find on most analog
synths or emulations. It is a 'soft sync' or in other words
a PLL, not a 'hard sync' that would force the oscillator to
a particular point in its cycle. Its intented use is to make
sure that two or more VCOs stay exactly in tune rather than
producing slow beats. If they are tuned closely enough so
that some harmonic of the first is close to an harmonic of
the second, the synced one will 'snap' to the exact frequency
to make these harmonics equal.

If you use the "Mod" input to modulate the waveform you need to
set "Form mod" to some nonzero value (it acts as a gain factor
on "Mod").

These plugins are now quite old. I've been working on improved
version (which will have 'hard sync' instead), but they are
unfinished ATM.
