    Hi all,

    I'm talking about the typical 0.1uF capacitor between the Presence pot and ground. For caps like Sozos, should the foil end be towards the pot or towards ground? I've seen photos with both orientations, but would like to know which one is correct.

    Thanks!

    whatever floats your boat?
    the lowest impedance to ground is, well, ground.

    I would put ground to ground. Probably won't make much difference either way, but every little bit helps.
