[sdiy] Bipolar Rail to Rail Opamp recommendation

One thing I haven't seen mentioned is the diodes. Using silicon diodes 
the breakdown voltage will be about 0.6-0.7V and for Schottky diodes 
about 0.3V.

Might want to switch over to Schottky diodes then the clamping would be 
around +/- 5.3V. I looked at some synth schematics and 1N5817 seems to 
be a common one.
