Wavetable is one of the brand new instruments in Ableton Live 10 - a powerful and flexible synthesizer that lets you make a near-infinite number of sound possibilities. But where should you start? In this short video from the course Ableton Live 10 304: Wavetable Explored, Noah Pred gives you a tour of Wavetable's interface, explaining what the different sections do and how it fits together.
Using Live's native interface format means that Wavetable fits neatly into the area at the base of the main window and has multiple sections. But unlike Live's other instruments, it can actually be expanded out to show much more extensive controls and give you a much clearer view of all its tools. Noah shows you how to do this, and how to customise the view to show more or less of the controls. Check out the rest of this course to really unlock the power of the new Wavetable synth in Live 10!
Wavetable synthesis was first experimented with in the 1970s with the hardware instruments designed by PPG. Then came Waldorf, followed by several others including the array of wavetable software synths of to today. Ableton’s new Wavetable synth is created in this great tradition bringing the power of wavetable synthesis to Ableton Live 10.
In this 20-tutorial course by Ableton Certified Trainer Noah Pred, you learn all about Wavetable, wavetable synthesis and how Ableton’s reimagined version of this genre of synthesis works in Live. You get tutorials about the dual oscillators, their myriad wavetables and how to expertly shape their tone. Then you learn how to morph through the different wave shapes using the modulators in the Modulation Matrix. Next up is the sound design section where you experience the creation of pads, leads, basses and percussion all utilizing power within Wavetable.
So join up with Ableton Certified Trainer Noah Pred and see how to get the most out of Wavetable. And be sure to watch all of our Ableton Live courses in our ever-expanding Ableton course collection.
