[sdiy] SH1000 problems..envelope

What a peculiar circuit...lots of transistors interacting and poorly 
labelled stuff on diagrams so you have to play wire tracing games on the 
big diagram.  It burned me up last night til too late.  DOES ANYONE 
know...if this is 'normal'.  This SH1000 has a variation in the baseline 
voltages on the envelope sliders (there is a common leg on the A, D and 
R) depending on whether various VCA tabs are selected.  If NO VCA tabs 
are selected then the voltage is so shifted on mine that there is no VCF 
eg control even though that tab is selected.  However the growl and wow 
function.  Does anyone know if this is supposed to be for some bizarre 
reason?  There are too many possibilities still in my mind as to what 
might be causing this.  ALSO the attack time seems kinda short.  I tried 
swapping the middle board AR-1 with another unit we are scrapping and it 
was worse not better. -Bob
