Sure Paul,

In my limited experience, it seems that the filters seem to be the one
single element that makes the biggest difference in sound in a synth with a
fixed architecture (well other than modulation routings). So, it seems to
reason that having different types of filters would broaden one's modular

So, count me in. I think I will require one of every filter you make and
two of the ones I get, use and really like. I like the sound of my MS-20.
But, I like the filters better in my Micromoog.
