Hmmmm. Not sure about intuition.  A sine wave with 16 sampled points
will end up like a linked list of edges.  Saving that to file and
resampling at 128 will only add points to the straight lines.  It will
not create curves as per the original.  It cannot.  How would it know it
was a sine wave and not a guitar tone when it had to process basically
what was a robotic tone ?
