Wavetables 001 - 032                                                              

The first 32 wavetables in the Microwave, Microwave II and Microwave XT (incl. the wavetables from the PPG Wave synthesizers)

001 Resonant 
Harmonics 1-8 very strong, simulation of a resonant filter,wave number 00 is a sine wave. 
002 Resonant 2 
Similar to wavetable 001, but with additional higher harmonics, dual VCF simulation. 
003 MalletSyn 
Similar to two previous wavetables, but also good for vibes, bells, tubular bells, and so on. 
004 Sqr-Sweep 
Sine-to-rectangular sweep, low-resonance VCF simulation, clarinette and flute sounds. 
005 Bellish 
Waves 00-47 feature very high harmonics in progressively greater amplitudes.
Waves 47-59 continue to add high harmonics but at a faster rate. 
Also useful for delay effects and church bells. 
006 Pul-Sweep 
Very high harmonics are emphasized, effects similar to wavetable 016, but more mixture-like. 
007 Saw-Sweep 
Sine-to-ramp sweep, low-resonance-VCF effects, also good for woodwinds. 
008 MellowSaw 
VCF sweep without resonance, also useful for woodwind sounds. 
009 Feedback 
Highpass VCF simulation without resonance. Wave 00 has little or no fundamental. Wave 25 has fundamental at maximum amplitude. 
Useful for dark percussive strings, bass with click-like attack. 
010 Add Harm 
Formants are strong middle-range harmonics, useful for ring-modulation and vocal sounds. 
011 Reso 3 HP 
Similar to wavetable 010. 
012 Wind Syn 
Low formants. Wave 00 is dark, 32 is bright, 59 is dark. 
013 High Harm 
High formants that sweep. 
014 Clipper 
Very strong high-order harmonics, the fundamental is weak.
Useful for bright percussive stringed keyboard instrument sounds like clavichord, harpsichord, and so on. 
When swept, you get an amplitude modulation effect. Wave 00 is maximum amplitude, 24 is minimum amplitude, 59 is maximum. 
Use great detuning and dissonant low chords for noise effects. 
015 Organ Syn 
Several organ registers. Sine, Hammond, Lowery, Church organs. 
016 SquareSaw 
Harmonics 2 + 3 to sawtooth sweep. Useful for harmonium, accordian, harmonica sounds. 
017 Formant 1 
Wild amplitude modulation effects when swept. Several peaks and dips in amplitude. 
018 Polated 
Wave 00 features the fundamental and second harmonic. Wave 14 is the fundamental alone. Wave 40 has high harmonics. 
Wave 59 is the fundamental alone. 
019 Transient 
When swept produces high-low-high harmonic sweep effect. 
020 ElectricP 
Waves 00-32 are stationary waveforms with string upper harmonics and a few lower harmonics. Wave 59 has no fundamental. 
021 Robotic 
Fast discrete changes of low and high harmonics for sample and hold effects. Wave 00 is a sine wave. 
022 StrongHrm 
Sine wave to high frequency formants. 
023 PercOrgan 
This wavetable is particularly suited for echoing effects. Waveforms vary from original attack plus one delay, to two colored delays. 
Wave 00 is a sine wave. 
024 ClipSweep 
Strong high harmonics. 
025 ResoHarms 
Stationary organs. If swept produces ascending high harmonic sweeps. 
026 2 Echoes 
Waves 59 to 49 go from bright to sine wave. 48 to 33 have a colored delay. 33 to 18 are sinewaves.
17 to 00 have a colored delay echo. 
027 Formant 2 
Variations on sawtooth waves with strong, bright formants. Good for brass sounds. 
028 FmntVocal 
Formant sweeps. When keyboard is used to control the waves vocal and choir sounds can be produced. 
029 MicroSync 
Phasing sawtooth waves. Useful for ensemble string sounds. Generated algorithmically. 
030 Micro PWM 
Square to rectangular to narrow pulse waves. Sweeps produce pulse-width modulation effects. Generated algorithmically. 
031 Glassy 
Hollow triangle-like wave with different harmonic content. Good for subtle pad sounds. Generated algorithmically. 
032 Square HP 
Square-like waves from hollow to bright. Generated algorithmically.
