Well, looking at the circuit, i can honestly say that what you hear is
probably 2 things occuring in the tb.

1. The 4174 being clocked by the slide enable might cause a voltage
fluctuation in the CV, thereby giving you a little bend in the current
note being played.

2. The transistors at the bottom of the opamp. When they start to
conduct, there may be a fluctuation in the CV. Minute leakage into the
opamp may change the CV. Either that, or it may be the charging of the
cap between the 2 bilateral switches. This is prolly youre best bet, as,
for a split second, the cap is an open until its charged. I can neither
confirm nor deny this, though! :))
