[sdiy] Compensation for triangle amplitude getting bigger at higher frequencies?

Maybe try a little Franco comp in the integrator?

I've noticed that at higher frequencies, the amplitude of the triangle wave gets larger. Like the output of the schmitt trigger is delayed in switching.  I'm using parts of a TL074 in the integrator and schmitt trigger.

TL074 has 13 V/uSec slew rate, which traverses the ~22v in about 1.7uSec, or the +/-5v trigger points in a bit under 1uSec.  Even at a top frequency of 16kHz, that's about 2% of the total period.
