The "sinoid" made from multiplying two triangle waves 90 degrees out of
phase has twice the frequency and an amplitude which is 1/8 of the square of
the amplitude of the triangles.  It is visually very close to a sine.  I'm
now curious about how this would stack up against the more normal sine
shaper output.
