. Might give this a whirl. Cheers. Jonno

Thanks Ben, that's something I've just been trying to research, great timing!

Thank you for the helpful video, must try!

I really appreciate these kind of helpful videos - thank you!

yes, thanks. I saw this a few months back and going to do this with my current build, pics soon

I did that trick and yes, really liked it. I plan on using a capacitor each time I use a piezo. Thanks for the tip!
