FWIW: In SSM the whole frequency range maps from -1 to 1 - so an un amplified
oscillator modulating another oscillator sweeps the entire range. 

This could be changed now, as the signals no longer get clamped to that range.
It would throw off all the FM synth patches I have though :)

On another note, does anyone use Beast/BSE? [http://beast.gtk.org/] It looks
promising, but development seems to have been quite slow. Might be worth
looking at for the people who were after a buzz substitute.
