Designing Custom Absynth Waveforms
We welcome back Evan Sutton, from Dubspot, as he presents yet another spot on video tutorial. This time he focuses on the abilities of the oscillators and the waveform possibilities they make available to you. And he tosses in a super sweet Atari cameo to keep you smiling. Some very helpful insights, tips and tricks are shared along the way that should help you in designing custom Absynth waveforms of your own to take your projects to a whole new level!
He begins by explaining how the waveform options differ in the main oscillator modules, and how you can switch between the list of waves and morphed waves when you begin a new session. A morphed waveform contains more than one sound wave, similar to how the wavetable system of Native Instruments Massive works. By creating a local copy of morphed wave, you are able to tweak it to your heart’s content. This is just the beginning of designing custom Absynth waveforms.
Actually accessing the sound waves used to create the morphed waves is where the real power lies in designing custom Absynth waveforms. You can easily assign an envelope to shape the delivery and development of each wave involved in making up the sounds being generated by the oscillator modules. This is such a fine level of manipulation and control that you can literally create anything you can think of, and a whole lot more that you probably never even imagined. And don’t forget that you still have all of Absynth to process these custom sounds!
This is most definitely one to bookmark and check back in on more than once. Using Absynth for sound design is one thing, but designing custom Absynth waveforms in your sessions is a whole new level of awesome! If you have experience with creating your own waveforms, we want to hear from you! And, if you have a tutorial request for us, make sure you shoot us a message before you depart today. Thanks for stopping by!
