Polarised versus Non-Polarised Capacitors

Author Polarised versus Non-Polarised Capacitors

I've just realised as I'm about to build the Ring Modulator module that I've used non-polarised 2u2 electrolytic capacitors in place of polarised ones in the Slim VCO B, SVCO Octave Board, COTA, SVF and now the Ring Modulator boards. Is it okay to use these or should I swap them for polarised versions?

Once upon a time non-polarised electrolytic capacitors were pretty crappy things. That may have changed but better performance and greater longevity will be obtained if you use quality made polarised devices. However, since 2.2uF electrolytics are primarily used for power supply decoupling in my stuff I think you'll probably OK leaving them in there.
