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...
