Thank you very much, that was illuminating.

However for now I'm was looking for a simplistic solution without the 
slightest care for sound quality, as I'm just using the signal to take 
its envelope in order to detect knocks and the like.

But now I know why it sounds the way it sounds and that with an 
appropriate high impedance buffer stage it can sound way better, the day 
I'll need it :D
