I don't know how long ago it was that you tried it, but I gather that
Richard has worked on an EQ/buffer thingie to get rid of the harmonics that
might interfere with the signal - I interviewed Alain Caron about this 
ago, and he was smitten by it for his Yamaha/Axxon system - he said the
analogue sound of it with the buffer on was horrible :o)
