thanks for that ridiculously fast response colin. i saw a post about the MAX1044 on this same board, but is that the only method or is there a more discrete way to do it with more common components like opamps and caps?
i also edited the post right after you posted, wondering if the soundlab will run off ±4.5v
I'm prety sure the soundlab won't work on +/-4.5V. There is a tiny chance you could use something from here (the 555 circuit)http://www.experimentalistsanonymous.co ... 0Ideas.gif
But the 1044 is by far your best bet.
