Sine calculation

Type : waveform generation, Taylor approximation of sin()
References : Posted by Phil Burk
Notes :
Code from JSyn for a sine wave generator based on a Taylor Expansion. It is not as efficient as the filter methods, but it has linear frequency control and is, therefore, suitable for FM or other time varying applications where accurate frequency is needed. The sine generated is accurate to at least 16 bits.
Code :
for(i=0; i < nSamples ; i++)
{
  //Generate sawtooth phasor to provide phase for sine generation
  IncrementWrapPhase(phase, freqPtr[i]);
  //Wrap phase back into region where results are more accurate

  if(phase > 0.5)
    yp = 1.0 - phase;
  else
  {
    if(phase < -0.5)
       yp = -1.0 - phase;
    else
        yp = phase;
  }

  x = yp * PI;
  x2 = x*x;

  //Taylor expansion out to x**9/9! factored  into multiply-adds
  fastsin = x*(x2*(x2*(x2*(x2*(1.0/362880.0)
            - (1.0/5040.0))
            + (1.0/120.0))
            - (1.0/6.0))
            + 1.0);

  outPtr[i] = fastsin * amplPtr[i];
}
