“How do you make an awesome-sounding hybrid synth even better?” asks Sequential founder Dave Smith. “By letting users import their own wavetables. We hope users get crazy with it.”
Sequential’s web-based utility Wavetable Generator lets you convert up to 16 single-cycle waves into a Pro 3 compatible wavetable and then load it into to any of the 32 user wavetable slots on the synth. This significantly expands the sound palette of the instrument.
Custom wavetables are generated as SysEx files that can be archived and shared with other Pro 3 owners. To use the feature, users will need to upgrade to version 1.1 of the Pro 3 operating system, available on the Support page of Sequential’s website. Both the Wavetable Generator utility and OS upgrade are provided free of charge to Pro 3 owners.
