From Tim himself,

" I first tried the 10/50 cap that couples the filter output
to the VCA in, partly because it seemed to be shorted, and also I could change it without
tearing the circuit board out. No change. Time to tear it apart. My next guess was the 3
.033uf and one 470p caps that are in the filter circuit. Put it back together & crossed fingers.
Success! All 4 caps measured ok, but one or more must be leaky. Pretty unusual for those
kind of caps to go bad in a low stress circuit like that, but stranger things have happened.
Anyway, 50 cents in parts and it's good."
