Thank you kindly Hermann, I hope I'll be able to join you guys at a
later date.  In re circuit emulation, I have to concur with Fons:
meaningful nonlinear full-circuit emulation (i.e. employing more than
just a single isolated idealised nonlinear component) appears to be
too demanding for realtime application on current hardware (and I
think the problem doesn't lend itself well to parallelisation so the
current trends in CPU progress won't help much) and if you stay linear
I think you're better off with traditional optimised digital filter

Not to say it's not a great tool, but I see its value more in gaining
insight than realtime processing.

Cheers, Tim
