GEN14 — Stores a polynomial whose coefficients derive from Chebyshevs of the second kind.
Uses Chebyshev coefficients to generate stored polynomial functions which, under waveshaping, can be used to split a sinusoid into harmonic partials having a predefinable spectrum.
size  number of points in the table. Must be a power of 2 or a powerof2 plus 1 (see f statement). The normal value is powerof2 plus 1.
xint  provides the left and right values [xint, +xint] of the x interval over which the polynomial is to be drawn. These subroutines both call GEN03 to draw their functions; the p5 value here is therefore expanded to a negativepositive p5, p6 pair before GEN03 is actually called. The normal value is 1.
xamp  amplitude scaling factor of the sinusoid input that is expected to produce the following spectrum.
h0, h1, h2, etc.  relative strength of partials 0 (DC), 1 (fundamental), 2 ... that will result when a sinusoid of amplitude
xamp * int(size/2)/xint
is waveshaped using this function table. These values thus describe a frequency spectrum associated with a particular factor xamp of the input signal.

Here is an example of the GEN14 generator. It uses the file gen14.csd.
