well, i had the same idea a while ago, maybe i only sent to the Bode list, i
don't remember anymore. i guess my idea was more like this:

     __       __
 /\ |  |  |\ |  |   /\
/  \|  |__| \|  |__/  \ etc, etc...

tri, square, saw, square, etc. maybe even throw in a sine every now and then.

i thought it might be easier to have a third osc at the same or half of the
frequency, control the timing that would flip-flip between the waves, so
that it changes every cycle. the lfo and env mod to that sounds interesting
though, maybe use and env to control the freq of the control osc.

anyway, let me know what happens, i'd like to know how it sounds! :)

 three things to remember about me:
 1) i'm not a dj,
 2) i'm not planning on being a dj,
 3) i'm not a washer and dryer repairman either.
