[sdiy] HP from Ladder

I traced the ladder inputs from my modular, the 303 filter was similar:


The notch is a simple grounded wiper on a pot with associated resistors. It's pretty boring TBH, a switch or cascading 2 like the MS20 would be more useful.

Well hang on, how does it work in the Sallen-Key topology like in the
Steiner Synthacon?  I know that's not a ladder - it looks like one
opened out flat to balance the diode chain, but it's fed differently -
but there must be some way to do it.

The neat thing about that is it has both lowpass and highpass *inputs*
so it can act like a kind of frequency crossfader:
