I've only recently become aware of that particular instrument,  and yet there 
are a whole *bunch* of designs for similar stuff out there on the 'net,  of 
varying design but most of which are pretty simple to build,  just hook 'em 
up to your scope.

What Memorymood caps are you finding problems with,  BTW?  Been a long time 
since I worked on one of those...
