True, what you really would need is a sweeping filter that opens/closes the
high frequencies quicker than the lows. This means that turning the signal
"on" is like sweeping a HPF from high frequencies and down, whereas turning
the signal "off" is like sweeping a LPF from high frequencies and down.
Makes for a great electronics exercise! ;-)

But - for optimum timing of all frequencies it's not an ordinary filter
sweep where the cutoff frequency is moving, but a filter that gradually
alters its slope. :-S
