[sdiy] Sawtooth vs. Triangle core VCOs

First thing that comes to mind is that triangle cores don't suffer from 
the cap discharge time, which tends to make the VCO go flat at higher 
frequencies.

I would also think it's easier to do through zero on a triangle core if 
that's your thing.  You can also do wave reverse sync on a triangle as 
opposed to wave reset sync on a saw.
