Hi Derek,

Well.. you'll see that patch that I sent wasn't much more than a mod  
of the pix_sig2pix~ help file.
However, there's a ton of variations once you add various types of  
oscillators and other features.
Previously, I was doing all of that but was missing the sync aspect  
so images would "float" around.
That's fine and of course can still be done by modulating the  
oscillators but at least there's a bit more control this way.
Also... this all works quite nicely by using some type of external  
controller - e.g. a row of knobs, to fine tune elements.
