first: thanks a lot for explaining the DC effects to you and to Lex. I
did however ask my question slightly ambivalent. I also would be interested
in why and how a [hip~ 5] filter removes a DC offset.

And related to that: What would be the best way to make sure you get
no DC offset? I normally don't use sound input, so are there other
possible sources to watch out for in purely algorithmic patches, which
might generate a DC offset without intention? I see that a phasor
introduces a DC offset, but should I watch out for less obvious offset
sources, maby filters and the like?

Thanks again in advance.
