The Included Packs
Let’s Take A Peak
These Ableton presets are truely something special because they are not based on the stock wavetables that come with Ableton’s wavetable synth but on custom-built wavetables that I initially made for and within Serum.
Because the source code of the presets is exceptionally unique you can be sure to get your hands on original and distinguishable sounds you haven’t heard before.
In addition to that you will find out that the fully formed presets are highly exceptional and come with their own distinct personality because Ableton’s wavetable synth really can show off with some impressive internal FM and Filter capabilities.
As a result you’ll get your hands on a wide ranging palette of colors that cover natural, acoustic instruments and also charismatic synth sounds… with a fresh unique twist, newly recombined… usable as modern synth sounds over a wide range of genres!
Ableton Wavetable Presets – Acoustic Mashups
The idea was simple: Let’s create new, original hybrid presets by mashing up acoustic instruments and analog synth sounds.
The result: Hell yeah! We get the best of both worlds. Live instruments, like e-pianos, electric and acoustic guitars, harps, a sitar and multiple brass instruments mashed up with analog synth gear… everything synthesized, resampled, warped and re-rendered.
All Ableton Wavetable Presets come in the .adv format.
The custom-made Wavetables itself are 24bit, 44.1kHz .wav files.
You need Ableton Live 10 Suite or Ableton’s Wavetable Synth Add-on installed on your computer (Minimum v10.06).

How The Wavetables Got Made
I designed the sounds for Ableton's wavetable synth by utilizing multi-cycle wavetables I initially made for and within Serum.
Whether you are using Ableton's wavetable synth or Serum: You immediately get an edge when using custom-made wavetables rather than relying on stock wavetables that everyone is working with.
The best: You use those wavetables with different synths and you always get different, new distinctive sounds! Because the internal processing of various soft synths has its own coloring and shines with particular capabilities, you never get the same sound when using the same wavetables.
In order to create original and innovative sounds that help artists to stand out, I thought to myself:
Let's start at the tiniest level... mess around with the smallest string of molecules... modify the raw source code that shapes a synth sound: WaveTables... I used Xfer Serum with its awesome mess-with-wavetables capabilities and pushed the soft-synth to its limits in order to build exciting and unique Wavetables... the secret sauce that sounds awesome right out of the box... that gives you an edge and can make all the difference!
I started by programming original sounds on some of your favorite hardware analogue synths
sampled these sounds by putting them through some high-end and nasty output gear
some were then mashed up with samples of live instruments I recorded... like bass, acoustic and e-guitars, multiple violines and cellos (for strings), trumpets and trombones (for brass) and an old wurlitzer... to appy natural and organic feel
I only used the best pieces of meat and transferred snippets of these samples into Serum
next, these WaveTables were re-synthesed by using Serum’s wizardry like warp and formulas ect
here is where the magic happens: sculpturing and messing around with the OSCs by putting them through warp, render, sync, re-sample… and repeat…
I finally stored the resulting OSCs as unique, bad-ass, multi-cycle WaveTables... that's how the secret sauce got made!
As a result we get 460 unique Wavetables... divided into 6 Wavetable Packs... the extra-ordinary source code for extra-ordinary, original sounds.
