(Modular) Synth and Clipping

http://linux-audio.4202.n7.nabble.com – Hi all, In a tentative of giving more personality to the modular synth modules of the avw.lv2 set, I have been looking at clipping. I would like here to discuss here a few assumptions, the fruit of my research and get a few feedback/comments to decide what direction to take. - in some cases (or let say modules of a synth), clipping is implemented more to copie what an analogue system would do than a mandatory part of the algorithm... Let's take an example: 2 sin waves mixed together of amplitude -1/1 will just have an amplitude of -2/2 (as long as they are in phase)... A digital mixer without (HowTos)
