Single Function Oscillator in Max

A while ago, I wrote about Tweetable, One Loop, One Function, Simple Arduino Music. I wanted to explore this in software – specifically, using an table-based oscillator. You can download the Max patch here.

Basically, there is an index of an oscillator buffer. This index is generated by the uzi 8192 object, and is sent to an expr object. The expr then calculates an output sample value for every buffer index, based on the function (expression) object. Finally, every sample value is loaded into the buffer~ object, whereby these samples are linked to an oscillator (i.e. cycle~).

i love the sounds this creates, very unusual. is there any chance of getting the patch in a max/msp v4. or pure data format?
