I've been out all day, so I missed most of this..I'll go have a look.

It has other problems too...;-) See my last post.

That was the whole point. It's 3 friggin transistors...hehehe

I tried lot's of stuff. I liked 1.0 uF (non-ele) the best. 22uF (ele) were
nice too. 0.1s
were just a compromise. The filter still sounds basically the
