DESCRIPTION

This is a Block-ified version of something I built a while back for this thread-- http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/these-pendulum-waves-are-inspiring.226932/
It produces a spread of notes centered around an incoming pitch based on the motion of pendulums of differing lengths, which results in some interesting arrhythmic, pseudorandom note sequences. One caveat: my original project used polyphony to generate an arbitrary number of "pendulums", and this does the same, although it was a little more awkward to implement with the monophonic, strictly core-based Blocks framework; it works to my satisfaction, albeit with slightly increased CPU consumption which I've tried to keep manageable, but suggestions are welcome.
