Continuous Order Polygonal Waveform Synthesis

A method of generating musical waveforms based on polygon traversal is introduced, which relies on sampling a variable polygon in polar space with a rotating phasor. Due to the steady angular velocity of the phasor, the generated waveform automatically exhibits constant pitch and complexly shaped amplitudes. The order and phase of the polygon can be freely adjusted in real-time, allowing for a wide range of harmonically rich timbres with modulation frequencies up to the FM range.
