Capacitor reset with FET/analogue switch

I actually used a 4066 in my little sync circuit for my mini...
Must admit I didn't bother to think if it would withstand the
current spikes. Anyway it seems to work fine...
Maybe the 4066 will die in some time ?
If you check out the schematics of a minimoog (with the new
oscillator boards), you can see an example of a FET (think it's a E112)
used to reset the cap.
But then, I don't know the audio range of the mini:s oscillators.
As Don pointed out, this will probably not work if you want
full audio range.
PS. Yes I know I should have delivered the schematics a long time ago.
I'm still having trouble getting the schem out in a reasonable
format. I'll try using another CAD-system. Also I've come to think
the circuit could be improved alot, it's far from perfect. But I
haven't got the time to try my new ideas yet... D.S
