i think i know what you mean.� but then, i guess the moral of the story is that 
a piano note is not sufficiently periodic to qualify as "quasi-periodic".� 
which means that wavetable synthesis is just
not good enough for it.

but the partials *are* quite harmonic.� and the higher overtones deviate from 
their harmonic values by a small and gradually increasing amount.� and the 
lower harmonics (where the great majority of the energy is) are still quite 
harmonic.� it *should* be decently harmonic after the
attack transient.
