This course will help anyone who wants to use Ableton's Wavetable synthesizer to make music or complete sound design projects. This course is appropriate for all levels.
Learn Wavetable Feature-By-Feature
Ableton's Wavetable synthesizer can seem overwhelming at first glance. But, it still relies on the holy trinity of synthesis tools - oscillators, filters and envelopes. However, Wavetable contains many unique and powerful features such as LFO attack, envelope loop modes and a limitless modulation matrix - perfect for crafting evolving sounds!
Sound Design Using Wavetable Synthesizer
Where subtractive synthesis suffers from timbral ranges that are often too simple, wavetable stacks up more timbres than you could ever imagine using! Where FM seems mathematically demanding and abstract, wavetable is tweakable and allows artists more intuitive control during the sound design process.
Not Subtractive. Not FM. Wavetable!
Wavetable synthesis is a powerful tool that excels at creating "other-worldly", "unnatural" sounds and timbres. Learning to use Wavetable will expand your sound design and patch design repertoire significantly!
