Karplus-Strong ("plucked string") algorithm generator

This implements a simple Karplus-Strong filter/generator. See the documentation for hpluck for more information (and a better implementation). This is initialized by the pluckset function.

From the source code:

float pluck(float sig, float *q)

The source code for the STRUM instrument contains much better plucked-string algorithms. This ugen is pretty ancient.
