well ahead of you man. The cap was picked very carefully. i tried probably 30 different values and polys as well. The Polys dont discharge fast enough, you get a leftover noise in the background from the snare between hits. it sounds like a kind of distant reverb, but in a bad , leaky kinda way.

you seem to know your electronics also too...its good to have you on this thread man!
