Right, the signal gets inverted quite a few times actually. It seems
to me that with a fully open filter the signal comes out inverted.
The existing inverter in the feedback loop (IC40B) can't just be
switched out, switching it to non-inverting mode isn't good either (on
some modes you'd invert unfiltered signal, on some not). So you can
use an extra inverter.
In fact would it be a good idea to just switch whether the feedback
from IC40B / SP19 goes to the inverting or non-inverting input of
IC41A? It looks like the right way to do the mod to me, correct me if
I'm wrong.
