I tried a more elaborate scheme some time ago (for Aeolus): instead
of just inserting on sample, replace N by N+1 samples using higher
order interpolation, with N up to 64. It could still be heard on some

One way to resample accurately with ratios near to unity is to use
FFT based convolution to find the samples at fractional position
a/b and (a+1)/b, then interpolate linearly between those.


Follie! Follie! Delirio vano e' questo!
