Top menus, File -> Settings -> Main Settings -> OscilSize.

There's a degree of mystery around oscilsize values and when, where and why
certain values won't work. Can't remember who, but someone recently presented
a very reasonable sounding theory that the oscilsize would need to be at least
twice the jack period for the fftw routines to be comfortable.

I'm curious about cases of silent shutdown when it encounters params/factors
it can't cope with. That's not acceptable behaviour, and should be improved.
