I look forward to downloading it and playing with it.

So what values does a sine wave move between? 0 and 1? Rather than -1 and 1?

Yes, a good idea.

Thanks, I'll have a look, to see if I can learn from it.

I agree, it sounds the most sensible way too.

Scary prospect :-)

Probably, that¹s what I hope to find with 'chuck'.

I'll keep an eye out.
Many thanks for you help.
