Okay. Isn't audio rate modulation unmanageably messy whatever method is used? Seems it's the last bit of analogue behaviour that digital synthesis can't quite replicate properly.
Well, audio rate modulations are typically also quite gritty on the real stuff. A bit of moderate aliasing doesn't really matter IMHO.
