Shepard Tone Generator in DIY?

I have long been fascinated by Shepard tones and was wondering whether there is diy generator project. I presume that it would have to be digital rather than use a whole case full of sine wave generators and VCFs etc. I would love to be able to produce Shepard-Risset glissandos from a single module,...

I can't help but notice this... I guess they're a little cheaper than mine (5 for £10.99 inc VAT & delivery - mine in UK work out about £2.90 each delivered vs £2.20 for these) - probably similar quality - but it doesn't say what lengths for example.

At that price it is worth a punt, surely?
