In a message dated 00-03-22 16:17:18 EST, you write:

<< For an additive source module, I guess some kind of high-frequency VCO that
feeds, say, eight "divide-by-N" chains that can divide by large numbers. >>

going from this back to the "simpler" ( ? ) idea of using a sequencer :
( as i recall, you were familiar with serge stuff like the "tkb" and for
whatever reason, i can visualize this easier in terms of that unit )
clock it at a superaudio rate so when divided down, you are in the audio
range. then, instead of using the row voltage output, take the gate output (
there`s one for each of the 16 stages ), think of the gate as being a fixed 5
volt steady state. feed each gate into a vca tuned to function best with
control voltages. now, modulate those vca`s in various ways, envelopes or
audio rate, whatever. sum those modulated outputs in another mixer / vca
type module. i would think that the varying level of each stage, when clocked
at the audio rate to use the sequencer as a "vco" would produce a complex
dynamic spectrum. or am i crazy ( not to be ruled out ! ) ????
