nope ,in fact ;

I wrote to someone , as answer on same Q - main reason is that I just like how pronouncing Pumpkin is sounding , then is funny creature , then Pumpkin ( I realized similarity much later) is really made for pumping juice in F4 and similar lazy bstrdz .....

besides that - main reason is that entire (leave Papa's brainchilds out) world of FiFi and FiEnd is just sick serious , pompous and greater than life .
so we must use any chance to mock it

Mods - sorry for OT

That's very good, ZM!
When not playing music or messing with one's own amps, the Papa-forum is a friendly, good place to be. Nice atmosphere here!

For me Maxinquaye is Tricky's best work (leave out the Massive Attack stuff). Pumpkin is quite romantic!

Default Burning amp as front end?

What I will ask, and it's probably more complicated than I can figure out without substaintial help. The simplified schematic looks close to the BA-1 and BA-2 front ends. Is it possible with some tweaks (maybe from the master and other giants) to use the BA-1 front end here to build a nice sounding amp?

So I want to post my comment on the "special 6-pin, lateron 8-pin" device: It's an OpAmp! It is used to care for 0 Volt dc offset.

But I want to throw in another idea: Why not using 2 F3 Amps, throw out the coupling cap, and build a dc correction via OPAmp??? Next could be the removal of the regulated supply, if used in this operational mode... Well, needs sym input, but who cares...
