The triangle is a common synthesizer waveform. When selected for the output of an oscillator, it was a more mellow sound than the standard square or sawtooth waves, with fewer and weaker higher harmonics. It is also a popular output for low frequency oscillators (LFOs), as it produces a relatively smooth up and down variation in whatever it controls, while being easier to create than the even smoother sine wave.
