I quite like [expr~ tanh($v1)] - but it isn't especially cpu efficient.
To hear it in action, just about every sound in this has been
through several [expr~ tanh($v1)] ::
Otherwise, I think there are some theorems about waveshaping and the
amount of oversampling necessary to avoid aliased frequencies and that
nasty digital sound...
