Hi JH,
Just trying my hand at the transient gate stripboard project, as it sounds like a very useful unit for a drum fanatic like myself.

Just had a question though - there are some 1uf and 10uf caps that aren't marked as polarised on the schematic (near the inputs for example). Are these electrolytics or do I need some big polyester ones for this job? And if they are elctrolytic am i right to presume the + would be where the signal is coming from and - where it is going to?

Thanks
Joe

I'm using non-polarized electrolytics here.
These can be replaced with any other non-polarized capacitors of the same capacitance, of course. Or with the usual replacement circuits, like 2 x 22uF polarized electrolytic back to back for a 10uF NP.
