goes to show that you shouldn't call automation data "CV", because it
gives people the wrong ideas (hell, even my mailer is getting confused
and thinks i should be attaching a file :-D)

there are synths, and there is parameter automation. using the latter
for amplitude modulation in the 20-20k band is just not a very good
idea, and should not influence a design discussion...
