Crude Wavetable Synthesis (Poor Man's Serum)

My lame attempt at emulating Serum type wavetable synthesis.

Start the song, go to the first PCMSynth and, while the song plays, hold the "Start" button to view the loop editor, should be fairly obvious what's going on. Enjoy the show!

Every sound in the WIP except the percussion comes from the same sample but all 5 "wavetables" have different loop points. Note the use of "slide" notes, notes that don't slide will always force the wavetable to re-trigger the wavetable (no, no ,no... that defeats the purpose).

Advanced mods encouraged. Please!

Why, thank you. I've Breen

Why, thank you. I've been trying to get that sound for a few months but just couldn't get the FM stuff quite that smooth. Was playing with the loop editor trying to get sounds out of a cymbal when I noticed the switching of directions in that loop mode using glide notes and a lightbulb went off. A living wavetable. Still a little shocked but super stoked about the possibilities.

I'm not expanding on this.

I'm not expanding on this. Just some different samples.

They all came out of Caustic machines in the first place. It didn't take very long to do this. It just fell out.

Awesome.

G.Dang! My greatest

G.Dang! My greatest contribution yet .... coaxing some life into this forum even if just for now. I had hoped if I shook the tree enough a few coconuts might fall out, I never dreamed they would end up being diamonds.

Awesome is right. And a huge thanks guys and gals.

P.S. 50 mb of wavetables:

Ok, just picked my jaw up off

Ok, just picked my jaw up off the floor. Stunning, and amazing musical application of the looping idiosyncracies (for lack of a better word).
