Re: Link to Oakley filter schematics

The filters in the Dual Filter Voicing Unit are geared more towards the 
guitar range but w/ some minor component substitutions it performs 
admirably for other uses as well.  The DFVU is primarily an 
boost w/ 2 active filters in the overdrive section.  Being an overdrive, 
will sound best driving the front end of a tube amp, overdriving the tubes 
to create distortion.  It sounds pretty good, but if you're looking for a 
conventional filter w/ a wide frequency range, this will probably 
disappoint.    OTOH, it's cheap and easy to build.  I would say go for 
it.  I would recommend picking up a copy of Electronic Projects For 
Musicians if you don't already have one (not just for this, but it is a 
really good reference for music electronics in general).

You have not yet reached the height of your depravity.
