hello all,

i'll keep this on the list as a few may be interested:

as per the schematic, C18 is 100nF - this gives you roughly 0.2Hz - 25Hz,
you need to add a switch then a 1uF capacitor in parallel with C18 to get
down to around 0.01Hz
i just tack soldered some wire from pad one of C18 to a switch, then to the
1uF cap and back to pad two of C18
with the switch open you get "slow", with the switch closed you get "slower"

thanks go out to Tony for helping out on this and other demanding mods i
keep wanting to make
for instance, we can't get Lumex LEDs here in the UK (please somebody prove
me wrong), but we can get LEDs that look similar, only there isn't a
bicolour version - so for the LFO i also ∗had∗ to go for the classic Korg MS
style LFO indicator (stick a reversed 1N4148 in parallel with the LED)
