ok. analog synths have been around for 30+ years (and i'm sure that regular
function generators have been around longer), but why is it that we're still
stuck with the same 4 waveforms (saw, tri, sine, pulse) from day one? isn't
there anything else that can be done to get some 'alternative waveforms'
(other than using ADSR and LFO modulation)? i mean, i'd much rather use the
4 waves than sampled waves, but isn't there anything that's been done to get
some more timbral variation lately?

sorry if sounds like i'm whining.

three things to remember about me:
1) i'm not a dj, (but i play one on TV)
2) i have no intentions of becoming a dj, (or an actor)
3) i'm not a washer and dryer repairman either
