Making Stab and Pluck style presets with Ableton’s Wavetable

One of those key sounds in electronic music is the Stab/pluck sound. It’s that quick chord that accentuates house music, techno, and even newer genres like Future Bass.  Over the last few weeks, I have been releasing videos on making this iconic sounds with Ableton Live’s Wavetable synth.  I decided to share my top 3 stab/pluck presets with you.  These are in the Mark Night, Testo, Deep house, Techno, and HOME style.

Here are the walk through videos:

Adding Custom Wavetables in Ableton Live

Since Live 10 came out with Wavetable, I have wanted to load my own custom wavetables. They said we couldn’t say it… well… we can. This article and associated video will walk you through adding your own custom wavetables to Live 10.

Steps to Import custom Wavetable

Before we get into the steps, let’s talk about the theory. As of 3/26/2018 you can only replace the official Wavetables in Live and cannot just upload your own with it’sown folder/name and such. Real bummer… Hopefully, that changes, but for now here are the steps to importing your own wavetables in Live 10.

  1. Create or have a Custom Wavetable to upload. Later in the article I will talk about how to do that, but for now you can download these Wavetables I created as an example. Tables need to be mono Wav format, 16 bit, 1024 samples for each waveform.
  1. Go to
[Wherever Live 10 is installed on your computer]\Resources\Dsp\Vector\Sprites
  • Rename the original wavetables to “name_Backup” so you have a backup you can always revert back to.
  • Copy a new wavetable into the folder, or the example one above.
  • Rename the wavetable to the same as the one you backed up. The name needs to be 100% exact.
  • Open up Live and check it out!

    Gritty Bass – Madeon, Getter, Style Bass with Wavetable

    I love when tracks have a nice lush sub bass that gives room for dubstep leads, and other midbass elements to come through. Freaking love how Madeon and Marshmallow do this in his music.  I recreated that style of sound using Ableton Live’s Wavetable synth. It’s a low gritty sub bass using a subtle formant sound.  Check out the video below:

    Big Pad Chords – Virtual Riot, Odesza, Wavetable

    So bass will only get you so far. You also need chords, pads, and other sounds to make the track feel finished. I am a big fan of lush chords. The kind I hear in Virtual Riot’s and Odesza’s tracks. I made this new Wavetable Preset with that sound in mind. Check out the video below or grab the preset for a $1.

    Electro / Future Bass Wavetable Preset

    Ok… Confession. I have loved Daft Punk forever. Love those guys. There Electro sound is on fire and I have loved seeing how thay have changed over the years. The sound of Daftpunk comes down to the talk box vocals and their bass lines. For years I have tried to decode the analog style sound, and have cracked it with Wavetable. I have also noticed this style of sound in more modern production like Haywyre and Jazzy style chill out. It’s been sneaking it’s way into a lot of Future Bass tracks.

     

    So like always, you can grab the preset for $1 or watch the video for step by step on making your own.
