That idea assumes the user creates a 'curve' that is itself sufficiently
oversampled (has way too much data than needed).
If you want to do it right you should provide an interpolator for undersampled
cases and a bandlimiting filter for oversampled cases.
In other words, you should do proper resampling with audio-rate parameters.
Only if the data is played back at its original samplerate can you assume the
data is a valid sample.
Since it is an audio rate controller you should always see it as a signal and
apply signal theory.
