the *number* of wavetables gets large, right? is that what you mean?
yes, bad wording
it doesn't have anything to do with the size of the wavetable.
with gigabytes of memory and 64-bit addressing space, i am not sure
what is "prohibitive". a regular sampled note can easily take up 1/2
meg. how many 2048-point wavetables can you fit into that space? or
in a meg? or 4 meg?
true, but personally I am not a fan of synths that take up much memory
and that was
one of the reasons it wasn't implemented in the final product

more unnatural than flat?
Thats a matter of taste in the end, at least I was a little bit
dissapointed with the results of my experiments
