To allow bipolar pulse waves as gate signals (without blowing up the tranny)
of course! (I answer all these rhetorical questions in the hope that there
will be some sort of prize eventually -- even if it is only due to tenacity)

But I still wonder if the audio signals of the 303 would have a quick enough
transition time to predictably gate an EG (anybody?) -- I hope this will be
tried and a report will be made to the list.

Did someone say EG? See my next post!
