Hi Peter,

You could have a look at this simple example (need Chrome Canary):

You can draw the harmonic components of a periodic waveform by clicking and
dragging in the view.  You can also change the pitch of the oscillator with
the knob.

I'm not sure that the JS code for this represents a quick and short example
(I'll have to create some more straight-forward tutorial code later).  But,
it might be helpful to understand how a periodic sound changes based on its
harmonic components...
