    anyone know any relatively simple schematics that use one or more LM741 op amps? I'm just getting started in electronics, and I was wondering if anyone could help me find some schematics for audio applications using LM741 IC's. Thanks!!!

    Are you familiar with the standard op amp configurations?

    A 741 opamp is too old (it is 41 years old) and has spec's that are no good for audio.
    The high frequency response fails above only 9kHz and it is too noisy (hissss).
    There are much better audio opamps that cost the same today. They are also available as a dual or a quad opamp.

    Most op amps use the 741 pinout. The 741 is a very poorly-performing op amp by modern standards, but works acceptably in low frequency applications.

    Texas Instruments has a tutorial about everything about opamps:
