But this is still not bandwidth-limited, is it? So it's use for audio
would also be limited to situations where either you would use the PWM for
controlling a "proper" audio oscillator, or where you don't really give a
scheiss about aliased frequencies and audio birdies.

I haven't checked your [square~] yet, but if it is antialiased it would
fill a big missing void in PD's audio arsenal.

Otherwise, I still suggest to use the BLOP plugins for LADSPA with
[plugin~], which sound about as real as you can get, but still only seems
to work under Linux.
