Hi Paul --
Let's see if I follow what you are saying. You mean that as a waveform is
changed dynamically by a shaper that the harmonics change in amplitude but
not in phase? I must admit I never even thought about that. Certainly,
when you sweep a filter there are strong phase changes. Maybe this is part
of why filter sweeps are "stronger" than shaper sweeps.
