This has me thinking...
Would it make any difference if it could tilt all the way ?

You would get the same harmonic content with the same deviation from the
triangle starting point, tilting either forward or backward - one wave is
just the other in reverse.

Would applying a rectified modulation waveform to a vco with only unipolar
modulation of tilt sound the same as applying the same modulation waveform,
unrectified, to a bipolar tilt input ?

Would this also apply to PWM ?
