Morphing Waveforms In Absynth 5
This Morphing Waveforms tutorial teaches you how to create your own morphing waveforms using Absynths Morph tab and also how to import waveforms from other sources and combine them to create an endless amount of sonic possibilities.
Hi There welcome to this tutorial on how to create Morphing Waveforms using Native Instruments Absynth.
Morphing Waveforms are basically 2 waves which morph together to create a 3rd morphed waveform which is a combination of the 2 original waveforms. These waves can either be from the factory preset waveforms, drawn in or even from an audio file.
In this tutorial i show you how the waves can be combined, mixed and changed in a simple and easy to follow video.
I walk you through using the OSC Main A Transition feature which allows you to go from 100% (wave 2 only) to 0% (wave 1 only) and everything in between (50% is an equal mix of both waveforms).
Morphing Waveforms is a great way to learn how waveforms interact by drawing in your own waveforms. I show you how to do this in detail and also how import a waveform from an audio file (although its only the first 1064 samples which are imported) which can give you a huge library of waveforms to play with.
Using the Anchor points you can select certain parts of the waveforms to change and/or adapt which gives you loads of possibilities. You can have a maximum of 4 anchor points for fine detail work.
You can also change the waveforms by using Mutate then you just end up with so many different waveforms to use that the possibilities are indeed endless. You can change the spectrum of the waves also in the spectrum tab.
All in all Morphing Waveforms is great fun and extremely adaptable and has endless possibilities. Using it can be a little confusing at first and may seem a little “geeky” but once you get the hang of it you may start wondering how you ever managed to live with out it.
Thanks for watching and enjoy the video. See you in the next tutorial.
