Understanding Wavetable Synthesis

September 1, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This lesson explores wavetable synthesis and looks at different ways of playing with Animoog. This should be helpful for people using PPG Wavegenerator and other wavetable synths too! Visit the site a free pack of Animoog Timbres and details on how to make your own: http://discchord.com/blog/2012/8/25/official-unofficial-animoog-timbres-plus-…

Wavetable synthesis was pioneered by Wolfgang Palm in his PPG synths of the 70s and 80s. With wavetable synthesis, a library of relatively complex wave shapes, rather than sine, square or triangle waves, are used as building blocks of sounds. Dynamic sounds can be created by mixing or morphing between different wave shapes.

Note that Moog calls the heart of Animoog its ‘Anisotropic Synthesis Engine’, which combines elements of wavetable synthesis and subtractive synthesis. Animoog lets you animate the modulation of your wavetable source(s), and then lets you filter the result with virtual-analog filters.
