My guess is they're doing the same thing that Dr Moog did with his
synthesizers - use three detuned oscillators to produce waves that are a
bit spread along the frequency range. If I visualize a pure sine wave on
an oscilliscope, I think of it as a thin line cutting through the zero
line. I visualize a Moog sine wave as three lines cutting through the
zero line, each at slightly different times because each has a slightly
different frequency. (Of course, each of them is produced by analog
electronics, each may have it's own minor variations over time as it
produces the wave, so each doesn't have the rigid precision that waves
produced by digital formulas have.

That would be a good idea. I'll have to try that with our sound guy this
Sunday - record a bit of the "Sine Wave" voice and a bit of the "Thick
Sine" voice and see what they look like. He normally converts tracks to
MP3 to share them, but I can have him keep them as WAV files for this.

Thanks.
