The mod does slightly distort the wave shapes for Pulse and Saw. It's apparent on the scope, but not by my hearing - so pristine after many years standing next to crash cymbals.thomaskobrick wrote: ↑Tue Feb 11, 2020 1:52 pmOn AC-coupling the filter inputs - is there a compelling argument against doing this mod? My instinct is to keep it stock and then see what the effect of NOT having the mod is, and then deciding later. But I also know once I get it cased up I’m highly unlikely to do an additional mod as I will be on to my next adventure (and hopefully using it!).
Anyone skip this mod and happy they did? Or should I just do it? Is this “thump” that the mod removes ever a desirable side effect for anything? Any regret applying the mod?
If you are on the fence, at least consider how much work would be involved if you left it out and then later decided you wanted it. You would have to take the entire thing apart, panel off. My whole build process is predicated on not having to take the panel off, once its on there with all 81 little nuts. If you ordered slider dust covers, you will come to loathe putting the panel back on, believe me.
Maybe.... cut the traces, add the caps and add little shorting wires to defeat them, on the back of the PCB. These would bow out from under the cap footprints. You will start with stock, and if you decide later you don't like VCA thumping and pops, (and smoking your sub-woofer because you drive it with an old Crown DC-300) you can open the case the cut these jumpers to effect the mod.
