I'm pretty sure that the waveshape CV lets you vary the wave continuously 
from triangle to saw to pulse shape.  The pulse CV input effects the wave 
only when the wavshape is set all the way over to pulse (it allows PWM).

However, I don't think the 3396's variable triangle allows you to tilt the 
triangle in either direction (left or right, making an up or down-going 
sawtooth).  I think it only goes one way - until the wave becomes an up-going 
sawtooth in shape, which then starts squaring off into a pulse.  I could be 
wrong about this, though.  I'm pretty sure the 3396 spec sheet gives 
pictorial examples of the available waveshapes.
