Sequential Pro 3 Wavetables and Editing

Exploring Pro 3 Wavetable Import and Editing


The Sequential Pro 3 has two analog VCO oscillators, plus a third digital oscillator that has standard virtual analog waveshapes, plus Wavetables.  The Pro 3 ships with 32 default wavetables available to load up on the third oscillator, but Sequential has also added 32 additional wavetable slots that can be used for importing User Wavetables.   (Note:  by default the wavetable slots 33-64 are identical copies of the 1-32 wavetables, until you overwrite them with your own wavetables)

Each wavetable in the Pro 3 consists of 16 wave keyframes, each 1024 samples in length.  This isn't considered a super high resolution wavetable system, like you might find in Serum or other digital synths, but it is very usable and expands the sonic palatte of the Pro3.

Download Free User Wavetables:
If you would like to experiment with importing some User Wavetables that other people have created for the Pro 3, you can download some User Wavetables here:

Convert Wavetable .syx Files to Another Wavetable Destination Slot:
Here's a little utility you can use to convert User Wavetables to a different destination slot for your Pro 3.

Send User Wavetable .syx Files to Your Pro 3 Synth
To send .syx files to your Pro 3, you'll need to use a MIDI program like MIDI-OX for PC, or Sysex Librarian for Mac.   They are both free utility programs:

Make Your Own Wavetables from 16 .wav audio files:
Sequential has prodived a website which converts 16 .wav files (wavetable keyframes) into a .syx format that can be sent to the Pro 3.   Optimally, each of the 16 audio files should be 1024 samples in length each.  To use Sequential's wavetable generator tool, follow the link below:

To Create Wavetable Audio Keyframes for the Above Sequential Tool:

WaveEdit - Jeremy Bernstein has forked an edit of the software utility, WaveEdit.   This forked/altered version of WaveEdit is optimized for exporting 16 audio files at 1024 samples each.   You can import your own audio clips and edit how they are sliced up into sixteen keyframes, then export the 16 audio files to be turned into .syx wavetable files on the Sequential site listed above.

WAV2Pro3 - chysn has created a web based tool to upload Wav files and split them into 16-frames, then convert them into .syx wavetables.  http://www.wav2pro3.com/

 

Wavetable Modulation Ideas

In order to get the most out of your wavetables, you'll want to modulate the Osc3 Shape Mod destination, so you can hear the effect of sweeping/morphing thorugh the wavetable keyframes on the Pro 3.   Try assigning one of the LFOs, or Envelope 3/4 to the Osc 3 shape mod.   I recommend starting with slower LFO speeds and longer Envelope ADR times, so you can really hear the wavetable scanning/morphing.   

On this site, there are some example wavetables available for download with spoken word phrases (example:  "The Eagle Has Landed"  NASA audio)  In order to hear it correctly played, you need to experiment with getting the oscillator in the right octave (try -2), and then modulate the wavetable with an envelope or LFO, adjusting the speed until its an appropriate timing, and you can make out the words.  

In addition, there are some 707 drum kit examples on PresetPatch.   The wavetable has kick, snare, hats, and toms.  In order to capture each instrument independantly, you'll want to adjust the Osc3 Shape Mod starting point, and then use an envelope to "play though" a small section of the wavetable representing that sound.

Split Point Wavetables

Sequential forum member Chysn (Jason) also has put together some great tools for working with Pro 3 wavetables.
