That'd also be a lot less smooth, right? You'd get a mountain range
instead of a safety scissor edge. And SubNoise is sample rate
independent if you take the sample rate into account when you set its
rate. :D

This is the 1 Hz weirdness I noticed, by the way. The lines are noise
generated at 5 Hz, 1.1 Hz, and 1 Hz. You can see the unnaturally long
plateaus that get way out of hand at 1 Hz.


But the 5 Hz shape looks pretty nice.
