Someone posted an interesting link on the mailing list.

I had to try this, only 14 sections (thats how many voices my piano patch gets) you could expand if you go simple tones or external midi.

I use the sine frequency doubler trick to get 2,4,6,8,10,12,14th harmonics,
The rest are synched LFOB's

That's a really nice version of it g2ian. It's really cool how it seems to move through different chords, and those note clusters seem to hit at just the right time.

I love it when mathematically generated music sounds really nice Very Happy Something about a formula generating beautiful music is really really cool.

Thanks Afro

It occurred to me that my first attempt, using frequency multipliers, might not be the best way to get the end result.

This perf has a version that starts with a high frequency clock and divides down by big-ish ratios. Like the way DCO's work.
Managed to get most of the first 12 harmonics from one master clock, 7th is not perfect and 9th is missing but the rest are bang on.
This technique also makes syncing to other elements more practical than the first.

The RndClk and LevAdd in the top right provide dynamics and pause the note stream.
