Re: Looperlative LP1 - sample rate
The way I understand this is that with 2 points you can find the "sine
equation" at this limit frequency.
As you don't hear the harmonics, it doesn't matter if its a sine, a square
or a saw, you just hear the first harmonic anyway.
I guess it's a bit simplist but ...
