Free Wavetable Synth in Simpler

I’ve been playing with creating my own waveforms to use in Simpler for production and been loving it. By creating a waveform and then adding it to a Simpler you can create really uniquely shaped sounds with a lot of character. It’s been amazing in my music to create thick and rich soundscapes.

Basically I created and modulated a bunch of small wave forms. Like a sine wave, square-wave, and such. I then used processing as well as warp markers to shape the sound how I wanted it.  After having this huge 81 unique samples I can then drag and drop them into ableton’s Sampler to make a synth from it. Then adding effects to the chain I now have an awesome new instrument.

I have collected the waveforms into a single Ableton Project folder as well as a zip file of all the waveforms (for any daw). For ableton I have created a custom Instrument rack to use the Waveforms as well as a custom Audio Effect Rack. Check out the video below that does a walk through, and download the files to start playing with this. It will add a whole new level of sound production to play with.

Here is a video with a walk through.

      Hey stoersignal! You should be able to just enter “0” for the amount without putting in your credit card information.

    Thanks for the very inspiring pack. I downloaded it successfully but on opening, it asks me for a installation destination for the cycle wavetable project: where do you put it so that it opens in Simpler?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    What a great tool!!!!

    When I warp the waves in a clip then drag that clip into the simpler, the wave reverts back to it’s original shape. How do I import my altered wave into the simpler? Am I missing something super simple?

    Such a neat resource! Thank you so much for this!
    Recently bought the Korg iWAVESTATION app, which uses Vector Synthesis like its namesake (Korg’s Wavestation, from the 1990s). Long been intrigued by wavetable synthesis, in part because it sounds particularly fitting for wind controllers like my WX-11. Noticed several references to different shapes but never really had a tool to use them without having to code in something complex. So this is all very valuable indeed!
    Using the Lite version of Ableton Live (bundled with Korg Gadget), couldn’t use your project directly. Ended up importing each wavetable in an individual Simpler and saving it in my presets after a bit of testing. Warped a few of them, getting very interesting results. Lots of room for experimentation.
    Haven’t tried them with my Wind Controller, yet, but they do sound like they could produce really neat results with breath control. Especially through a chorder like mucoder tonespace. In some ways, your samples provide me with a significant part of the value from the Wavestation.
    Because several of the samples produce similar results, switching between several of them could make for relatively smooth transitions.
    So, thanks again for letting us download these! Will check if you’ve done anything with them more recently..
