AKWF Waveforms – single cycled

September 22, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Adventure Kid has released a free collection of single-cycle waveforms for wavetable synths, AKWF Waveforms:

I have been making and collecting one cycle waveforms for years. They have been one of my best weapons to use when making sounds.

If you have a wavetable synthesizer that can load single cycle waveforms you might find them useful as well.

If you are familiar with basic subtractive synthesizers you probably know the saw, square, sinus and triangle shape that are the most common shapes a oscillator can produce pretty well. Single cycle waveforms are tiny audio files (.wave) that a synthesizer can read to use as oscillator shapes.

What it means is new sounds. Some kind of grey area between sampling and synthesis. A raw waveform is very rarely what makes a whole sound but you can see it as presets for oscillators. Happy sound designing!

AKWF Waveforms is a free download from the Adventure Kid site.
