    Hi, can someone tell me if this is a sawtooth wave (or atleast getting there) i know there is not enough harmonics Thanks!

      It looks like a sawtooth. I changed your patch so that it actually generates the waveform. Doubleclick the buffer~ to see it.

      really appreciate the help, can you explain what the trigger does and why the buffer is set to 24 and also the -1. Thanks

      i would use something like this to sum an "arbitrary" number of partials into a single sawtooth-waveform. volker.

      np :)
      The trigger makes sure the second argument of pack is set before the first argument. This is because the first argument triggers the pack to send its output.
      The 24 is because the buffer needs to know how much samples it is supposed to hold. 24 is in milliseconds, with a samplerate of 44100 Hz this amounts to (a bit more than) 1024 samples.
      -1 after uzi is because uzi's third outlet starts outputting at 1 while the sample index in peek~ starts at 0.
      This can all be found in the tutorials and help files. I would advise you to do the max and msp tutorials. There's a lot info you might find useful.
