Hi Neil,

For the env gen? You mean this one? -


The interp for that doesn't use the formula above. It does the offset and scaling separately, because I didn't know better at the time I wrote it. There may well be a rounding bug, since mostly it doesn't round at all - it truncates. What have you spotted?

And thanks for taking the time to look - appreciated.
