Hi Tom,

You are very close of what I'm looking for.
My first wishes would go to an 'enhanced' Moog ladder VCF
with addwed features.
I just have to do my studies now...
First I build a lowpass ladder filter on breadboard
and buffer any of the 4 matched transistors stages
with FET opamps, then see what I can do with all
the 4 opamp's outputs to generate HP, BP & notch simultaneous outs.
The electronotes will be VERY handy !
