[sdiy] function generators as slave oscillators

Has anyone tried slaving a standard function generator to a VCO or other audio signal by feeding it into the function generator's trig/gate input? I've found it to be a fantastic source of strangeness if you have a sufficiently fancy function generator. The output waveform isn't constant over pitch, so you get a sort of fixed formant filter effect, and this can be modulated using a sweep generator or VCG input. I look forward to making some weird recordings this weekend. I have two Waveteks that are capable of all sorts of nonsense.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
