Are there any Orange Squeezer modders here?

Hello there.

I'm using an Orange Squeezer guitar limiter on my pedalboard because it doesn't take up any space -- it's in a box that would have to be there anyway. And I rather like the simplicity of it.

Except I might have to violate its innocence in order to gratify my desires. If it could be done respectfully. I want to get rid of that pop on the front edges of notes. Speed up the attack, that is. I've already halved the cv filter capacitor, and that made it sound better by my lights, but I want to go a step further. And, I don't want to just make the cap smaller because that runs into other problems.

My thoughts are to use the unused side of the dual opamp to add an inverted signal to the control voltage rectifier, making it full wave rectification. Thence theoretically I could halve the capacitor again, and besides if the pop is a negative pulse it would allow the limiter to catch it, which it wouldn't in the original configuration.

Your thoughts?
