$22Add to cart

Virtual box for the Ableton Wavetable Presets called Tropical Mallets that come with custom built wavetables and presets for ableton live 10 and used on sparkpackers product page

Introduction

These Ableton Wavetable Presets are truely something special because they aren’t based on Ableton’s stock wavetables but on SparkPackers’ bestselling custom-built Wavetables that I initially made for and within Xfer Serum.

On one hand you can be sure you’ll get original and distinguishable fresh sounds because the source code of the presets is exceptionally unique. On the other hand you’ll find out that I put Ableton’s wavetable synth through its paces and made use of its impressive internal FM and Filter capabilities.

As a result you’ll get your hands on a wide ranging palette of colors that cover natural and acoustic instruments and also charismatic synth sounds. As always with SparkPackers, this are sounds you actually want to use on every track in your daily production work.

So, here we go. A first taste of the 118 Presets that are made exclusively with the 80 Wavetables that also come with the Tropical Mallets pack:

Description

percussive ableton wavetable presets

Honestly? This is the pack I wanted to keep to myself. Maybe it’s just me, but you play your favorite chord progression with those transient rich Wavetables and you’ll have your next hit!

Who thought you can get such a nice & clean, natural color out of a soft synth? So! Much! Possibilities! You’ll get: Wooden, weighty, punchy, sizzling, crunchy, chromatic, caribbean and futuristic Tropical Mallets!

As with the other two Ableton Wavetable Preset packs: My goal was to create less photo-realistic but more hybrid and mashed-up presets. As a result you get the best of both worlds: Acoustic, percussive instruments, synthesized, resampled, warped and re-rendered. With a fresh unique twist, newly recombined. Usable as modern synth pluck sounds in a wide range of genres!

Secret Sauce

How The Wavetables Got Made

Why did I bother and spent hundreds of hours creating unique multi-cycle Wavetables?

I always had the vision to create memorable and inspiring presets... original and innovative sounds that help artists make an impact... sounds that can help you to stand out!

The best solution I came up with: 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 it to its limits in order to build exciting and unique Wavetables... the secret sauce that sounds awesome right out of the box... this made all the difference!
Here's what I did:

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!

Whoop whooop!
As a result I got 460 unique Wavetables... divided into 6 Wavetable Packs... the extra-ordinary source code for extra-ordinary, original sounds
