Additive Sine Bank Synthesizer with lin. Interpolation between Partial Data Sets

While reading some tutorials by salamanderanagram (Donald Phillips), I came up with the idea of using the event table and its Y-interpolation to morph linearly between different partial data sets. Although the basic concept is working, the overall experience (at least for me) isn't as inspiring as I expected it to be.

Werkbank can be pretty CPU demanding: the more voices / partials, the higher the CPU usage. If you experience audio dropouts, reduce the voice count in the instrument settings and/or the number of partials.

If you encounter problems, please use the comments section.

Initial inspiration and basic structure by salamanderanagram (Donald Phillips):
Thank you!

Version history:
1.5b (2017-02-26)
- fixed some active labels and changed the overall color a little bit up

1.5 (2016-09-21)
- Reaktor 6 GUI-update
- Added random partial source, mostly useful to set a random phase per partial

1.4 (2014-11-15)
- bugfix: sometimes the c / p / - (/ saw / square) operations weren't triggered properly

1.3 (2014-11-11)
- Got rid of the visual partial animation (driven by the display clock, it looked quite laggy)
- GUI overhaul
- Reverb

1.0.2 (2014-08-29)
- Fixed the size of the ratio copy buffer (values greater than two were cut off)
- Fixed the horizontal scrollbar mb-reset (stupid: poly module in mono structure)

1.0.1 (2014-08-25)
- Polyphony

1.0 (2014-08-21)
- Initial release

Nevermind. I found that if I stretched the tail on the "A" envelope I could achieve what I wanted.

Fascinating Synth. I am trying to control the sustain/release so that I can have some gradual fade when I let go of a key instead of a steep cutoff. Any pointers here?

I'm finding that while this can use up a lot of CPU resources, the sound results are totally worth it!! Thanks for sharing!!

It's been a pleasure. Adding polyphony was fairly easy.
