hi - this is mainly for peter grenader but i thought i'd put it on AH in
case anyone else is interested...

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/analogue_systems/message/347

so, i read the post in the analogue systems yahoo group about modding
the rs350 to give it a greater range of lag rates. this is interesting
to me cuz i was considering getting one myself, but i was concerned that
as it is the maximum rate of 100ms/V might be too slow for me (the stuff
i come up with seems to be getting faster and faster at the moment >:D )
i've only ever used a circuit like this as a portamento control in a
monosynth and i'm used to being able to turn the rate up until the
effect is pretty much inaudible. two questions then:

1) how hard would it be to do a (functionally) similar mod, except with
the switch settings being 'fast', 'normal' and 'slow' instead of
'normal', 'slow' and 'uber slow'? the latter as described in peter's
post sounds within my capabilities.

2) ok, not really a question but what do the rs350 owners out there make
of this module, mainly in terms of what i mentioned above but also in
general? you like? 

cheers!
