Thanks Stewart!

Ok, so we use the standard flip-flop to give us a sub-oct square, and then we use the square to flip every second cycle of the main o/c's ramp output to give us a sub-oct triangle. And then we use sine shaping on the triangle.

How good is the flipping, typically? Don't you get glitches in the triangle? I suppose if you're sine shaping it and you know it's a low frequency, you just add plenty of smoothing caps after the sine shaper and call the rest character!
