I´m not sure if that qualifies as a Subtractive Synthesis... More additive synth... But nice sound neverthenless =)

Well, i filter harmonics of a fundamental LFSaw (E because it sounds wider). I though it is the definition a substractive synth ? Btw, i implemented this following this www page : http://www.angelfire.com/in2/yala/2ansynth.htm Glad you like it .
