Added two new waveforms:
- circle wave: sounds a bit like a very smooth pulse wave, bright and soft
- spike wave: makes very 'thin' and grainy sounds

    I see merit in the spike wave, but the circle wave can be obtained by applying a nonlinearity to the sine wave (or filtering a square wave).
    Next time I have a chance I will add the spike wave as per the patch.

    That would be great... Thank you.

    As for the circle wave, I've tried many times to emulate it, and it was
    harder than I thought. I agree you can get something similar quite easily,
    but the sound has a very delicate balance between 'brightness' and 'softness',
    which is hard to obtain, and which I really love.

    OscilGen: Added spike waveform (lievenmoors)

    - Author sf user lievenmoors
    - spike wave: makes very 'thin' and grainy sounds

    1) If you want the circle wave added as well, there would need to be some wave deforming over the parameters range (I am not opposed to having more waveforms as long as they are sufficiently differentiated)

    2) A quick search did not yield your true name, so for now you are in the AUTHORS.txt file as "lievenmoors". If you want this updated just let me know what you want it changed to.

    Hi mark,

    Thanks for including the spike wave. As for the circle wave,
    I'll see if I can make it more interesting by making it elliptic.

    greetings,

    Lieven Moors (is my real name).

    Whoops, first time I have heard of that name.
    Capitalization/Space added.
