When you say 512, are you talking about phasor or an tanh distortion?

well, yeah, it was a digression from the previous topic, that's why I
changed the subject. This is not related to tanh~ at all... so I meant 512x
oversampling to get rid of aliasing in phasor (actually sawtooth made from
phasor) signals.

Its very different : a sawtooth have an infinite number of harmonics, but

yeah, I know it's got infinite harmonics, and that a band-limited
oscillator is better. But this is also because I'm using this to measure
the efficiency of the anti-aliasing filter, how good it works and all
