Yes, I always prefer to have adjustable hardness/softness as well. It's
handy with a sync parameter reaching from 0 - 100 % sync, where 0 % is no
sync, 100 % is hard sync, and anything between is soft sync (with the
parameter set to X, the oscillator syncs if it has passed at least 100-X %
of its period) (A common soft sync amount in synthesizers correspond to 10

I'd still call it just 2 sync types though. :-)
