What’s the most fun you can have with two sine waves? Here are a couple of ideas. If you split them by four octaves, distort and filter, the mess of overtones can be appealingly screechy. But if you take the higher-frequency sine out of the audio signal flow and instead use it to phase-modulate the lower-frequency sine, with the same envelope controlling the filter as the level of the modulating wave, you get a big organic glassy bass sound. Nice!
