  Firstly I have to say wow, this looks great, loads of really neat features,
well done!

  I've had a quick play and its pretty easy to pick up, but I have a question.
One thign I want to do is to play with 'VOSIM', basically you have a train of
pulses (bell curves) that make up a cycle of audio. You vary the number of,
amplitude and width of each curve to change the 'tone'.

  Now I can see I can use a sine oscillator, square it and this will give me the
bell curve, only problem here is that I get two 'bell curves' for the price of
one cycle, which brings me neatly onto my next problem..
What I need to do is to change the amplitude and/or pitch of each 'pulse' at the
zero crossing, great I can use Zerox, but, how do I then change the value?

 I had though of feeding the output of Zerox into a 'sequencer' which controls
the pitch and amplitude of the sine oscillator, but I can't see a 'sequencer'
type of module..

 So, There are two questions
firstly, Is there a sequencer module planned?
and secondly, if not, how can I get round this? can I use the output of Zerox to
increase a counter and use an 'if' statement to change the values of the sine
oscillator? will the use of multiple 'if' statements be quick enough?

Sorry for the long winded question.
