Re: [Bug 19561] WaveTable is poorly named

Hi there,

I was the one complaining about this :)

My main point was that the word 'Table' is confusing in the context of 
wavetable synthesis.
Maybe you could exchange it for the word 'Set' as in HarmonicSet or 
That way we could reserve the word 'Table' for the higher structure of 
wavetables, should it get implemented.

In wavetable synthesis the word 'Wave' is referring to the 
single-cycledness of the data and doesn't refer to the actual encoding 
(PCM or FFT) of the wave.
So from that perspective it would be cool to preserve the word 'wave' in 
the name for the data.

btw. How does the implementation of the oscillators work? Does it 
pre-render the fft data to pcm or does it do additive synthesis on the fly?
