looking for envelope follower info

There is an envelope follower in Craig Anderton's book, _Electronics
Projects for Musicians_. (I call it "Electronics for Dumb Musicians.") This
book and all of the projects in the book are available from PAiA. Kits can
be bought either as a PCB+parts or simply PCB alone.

I don't know how good these projects are specwise. Annoyingly, the book does
not say what the voltage range of the envelope follower output is. (Note:
this is not a filter nor an amplifier, just an EF.) Anyway, it looks like a
no-brainer to build, which is good for dummies like me. 

Good luck,

Dr. Yo
