Notch down? Pardon me, it's you who slams Neil en masse, perhaps you
should CALM down? Dixon is mature enough to handle personal attacks
himself. Dixon no saint,have bashed people on e.g Muff's.

I went baffled Neil dissing my guess works while doing his own guess
works pretending to know 99%. But now everyone has calmed down
and everything is fine at the SDIY temple. ;-)

Silly argument since "now" Neil have studied the design and clearly
says GND in and outs, evidential.

See, there you are! "Tada".

So why do Rossum connect output to GND via a resistor (although small)
and so did Sowa in one of his VCF's (10K). But Sowa changed his mind
in his latest post it seams.

Just tried try address the fact prior 2164 datasheet
didnt give guidance at all with unused VCAs.

Oh, the drama at SDIY temple mound among the priests.
