[sdiy] how to calculate cutoff in an OTA filter?

I think Guy means that if you’re looking for the unity-gain point, you need to take into account the voltage divider at the input of the OTA. There’s a big attenuation going in, so the gain required to achieve unity gain overall will depend on the component values you choose to bring the input down to the right level. However, it *won’t* depend on the input level itself.

Is that right, Guy?
