there may be a default parameter, right? And that seems to be 0. If I have
sync at "0", I hear no sound.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like the sync parameter is able to do hard sync. It
seemed that the "0" value would do that, but, as I said, I hear nothing.

If phase input is linear in chuck, then the code from SuperCollider would
be equivalent, but it is not. And even if it wasn't linear, I tried it with
radian values and did not get the same results.

I suspect it is not really doing phase modulation because it doesn't matter
if I change the carrier frequency, and that is weird.

well, I guess I'm repeating myself, sorry, just anxious in the hope of
