Custom-Made Wavetables for Serum & Others
The day had finally come where I finished sampling all those amazing analog synths that I had borrowed from equally amazing friends and colleagues. Sampling stuff is awesome but why not take it a step further?
The fun started when I began to process those strings of analog DNA further with all the wizardry a great synth like Serum has to offer: applying digital synthesis (using Warp, FM, Filter, …) and then rendering and resampling those
into new multi-cycle, pre-processed Wavetables.
As a result you get the best of both worlds: analog, digital, hybrids and mashups.
With Analog vs. Digital you’ll find no losers. Only winners and champions!

After finishing Analog vs. Digital, I was so excited about how close we came to capture the various flavors and nuances of those hardware units, that I thought: It’s time to go crazy! Pushing the internal synthesis way further… repeating the render and resample process – every now and then, multiple times.
My goal was to create crisp scanlines and magnetic, vibrant molecules that stick out and cut through the noise. Wavetables that are ready to electrify and to make an impact! The Opposite of lame & generic is Crazy Electric.

Naming those Wavetables was the most fun and easiest part in months. You’ll find Digital XXLs, Epic Blasts, Huge Scanlines, Knockouts and Powermoves. And the best: they are suitable for every genre. Rock and spice up your production.
Again, this one is a beast!

Not only did I sample some nasty analog gear, I also recorded live instruments over the course of many studio sessions. As much as I love machines, you can’t ignore a shiny guitar or saxophone played by flawed but humorous and hopefully charming human beings, right?
Those amazing musicians brought their instruments into the studio and we recorded E-Pianos, Rhodes, guitars, acoustic guitars… a whole f** brass section… At the end of the day, the goal was to create hybrid and mashed-up Wavetables, not photo-realistic samples.
Here again, get the best of both worlds: Live instruments, synthesized, resampled, warped and re-rendered. Ready for the roaring 20s!

I remember walking into my studio one day, seeing all this amazing analog hardware gear that I had borrowed from friends and colleagues to finish a project... I thought, what a shame to give back all those beautiful cuties... I had put my heart into programming all these sounds and patches... what a waste...
So I launched into this sampling marathon and wondered, wait a minute - why stop there? That’s what everyone is doing. Let's take it a step further:
Let's chop up the samples into tiny molecules and transfer those snippets into Serum and create some Wavetables that capture those awesome analog vibes and live recordings.
The goal was to create Wavetables that sound amazing just by loading them into your favorite Wavetable synth.
At the end, I divided all 460 Wavetables neatly into different categories that match the characteristics of those new & fresh ingredients.
