Creating Modulated Sounds With Wavetable Synthesis
In this video provided by Future Music, we see how a wavetable VCO can be used to create unique, modulated sounds. The VCO featured in the video is the Synthesis Technology E350 Morphing Terrarium. From the E350 site, we learn:
“the E350 implements a proprietary smoothing/anti-aliasing algorithm that allows the two outputs to be a continuous blending of one wave to another. The algorithm calculates 128 “in-between” waveforms, so that the 192 “basic” waveforms are really expanded to over 24,000 individual timbres!”
What’s makes wavetable synthesis so cool is that there are an infinite amount of possibilities in crafting a sound, with small manipulations to the waveform having dramatic results on the final output. Learn how wavetable synthesis works.
