the sample you use contains both of the following things: a band
limited step, and a negated naiive step. The negated naiive step
cancels out the one from your naiively generated accumulator saw wave.
This gets only cancelled out on one single audio sample. Essentially
the abrupt jump gets moved by one sample over (depending if it's a
falling or rising saw), and where the jump was previously, a sample of
value zero is put. Then, the band limited step replaces that zero
sample and also influences one sample before and one sample after.
