In the Shaker's setupNum() function (uget_stk.cpp:12387), the
frequencies of each resonator are set depending on the instrument
type.  It looks like they are set to specific values depending on the
instrument.  This is probably because they are designed to emulate
very specific sounds.

You could probably get some interesting effects if you modified this
code to multiply all frequencies by a variable such as freq, so that
you'd have control over it at runtime.  But the answer is, I think in
generate .freq() is not used for Shakers.
