'[OT]: Baker clamp'
I know this is way off topic but all the help will be appreciated.
Can someone please tell me where i can find info on a baker clamp.
I do know that it is used in audio amps to prevent latching, thats it.
A circuit design with explanation will help.

One regrets more the things that you
did not do than the things you did do.
A Baker clamp prevents the transistor from saturating, since transistors
are slow coming out of saturation.
The simplest implementation uses a Schottky diode from base to collector
so if the collector gets negative enough it pulls the base drive away. The
Schottky has a low forward voltage so it works with no other parts needed.
Other implementations use more parts.
I've never used them in audio, but lots in video for sync separation.
