a higher frequency would be easier to filter out.
..but too high and you'd want to interpolate the peaks.
I'd go into the kilohertz range.

....but as it works anyway ;-)

well, if you didn't perceive a modulation of the signal at 100Hz
there must be some delay, as to filter out the 100Hz component 
would certainly cause one.
mind you only around 10mS or so.

In the same way that using a compressor with a fast setting on a bass
note can cause distortion there's a play-off.

Interesting technique, could be really handy for someone with a minimal 
..and at least as good as Midi with it's 128 steps which also
need filtering.

take absolute value and lo-pass it.
( do-able in Bidule, probably others too )
...or something a bit more complex with hold times and stuff to really
get the fastest response.
