thanks again, what izz the best way of testing this LFO switch...oh yeah I
noticed that there are two switches underneath that white cap...are they
both switches??? yep I tested it again.....the 4th voice OSC 2 cuts out
after 10 minutes of operation, although it can still be heard, very faint.
The res and cut-off filter work on the 4th voice 2nd OSC...its just very
faint.....would that be an amp perhaps,,,,as the filter stil works...its
just faint?

oh yeah...guess what....I dont do gigs...too many compromises
