[PD] acieeed?

Have to admit that those Blop oscillators sound pretty damned good. One 
problem with PD is that there's no simple [+ anti-aliased] way to make a 
square, triangle or PWM oscillator. I can't recall which waveforms get 
used in Frank's thingee [triangle and square are pretty 
acieeeeed-sounding, tho...], but they won't sound nearly so phat if you 
"home-brew" it w/o the Blop oscillators. Vcf303 could probably be 
replicated with the vcf~ object in main PD, but again it might not be so 
fine tuned. Also might take a different range of control numbers. Try it 
out and see. Somebody else might have made some cross-platfrom, 
anti-aliased multi-wavefrom osciallators. Might be good if they chimed 
in right about now if they have ;-)
