[sdiy] VC Sallen-Key with a 2164

PS: the first stage in Olivier's circuit optionally switches out the
first capacitor, which is what the Oberheim XPander did. This is the
take weighted sums of the 4 output stages to generate different
responses, so just leave that cap in the circuit like the other stages
for what I propose.
