I was thinking of both, in the long term. Hearing this, I might postpone
the to-Microwave part. :) Is there a particular name/method for this
kind of problem? I'd like to try to do my own research, at least until
I'm stumped. :)

Currently I have the functionality to convert between waves in audio and
plaintext representation and harmonics, with optional resampling or
loosing harmonics on the way. I'm working on the Yoshimi output, just
some formatting, and the Microwave, of course. I always wanted to be
able to unlock that.
