Creating FM wavetables
FM synthesis is a synthesis method used in many synthesizers such as Yamaha DX series, Ableton Operator, Elektron Digitone, etc.
The FM tone is created by modulating the carrier oscillator with a modulation oscillator.
FM stands for frequency modulation, but it is actually phase modulation.
Creating PWM wavetables
for loop syntax
The for loop syntax is a way to loop through the array elements in order. By iterating, multiple files can be generated in sequence. This can be used to generate multiple single-cycle waveforms.
The above code loops through the numbers 1 through 5. When executed, it generates five sine waves from the base note to the fifth overtone in sequential numbers.
Learn how to use Octave to create Wavetables.
I will show you how to create a Wavetable in Octave, a numerical calculation software. The waveforms you create can be used with Serum, Ableton Wavetable, or any other audio-importable wavetable synth or sampler.
Learn how to convert a wavetable to an Elektorn sampler. Other samplers are also applicable.
This section shows how to resize wavetables in Audacity. As an example, a wavetable with a length of 256samples per single cycle waveform is converted to a length of 1024 samples.
By multiplying the speed by 0.25, the length of the waveform is increased by a factor of 4.
256 x 4 = 1024 samples
Now you can use wavetables you created in WaveEdit in Ableton Wavetable.
AMS files are multi-cycle waveforms that can be generated from Ableton Operator's additive synthesis editor. It can also be used with Ableton Sampler and Simpler.
