I was very surprised and pleased when I received an email late last year from one of my favourite synthesizer creators, Paula Maddox, enquiring information about the AE Modular system. Paula is an incredible synth designer and is probably best known for starting the Modal company and creating the much coveted synthesizers, the Modal 002, Modal 001 and Modal 008 which were years ahead of the competition in terms of capabilities at the time.
Being no longer involved with Modal, she started another company Dove-Audio which has released two amazing Wavetable modules for Eurorack and 5U formats, the WTF (Window Transform Function oscillator) and the Waveplane oscillator. It was this technology that she wanted to bring to the AE Modular system and I was thrilled to be working with her on this vision. You can find more information about Paula and Dove-Audio on her website at https://dove-audio.com/
I am now very happy to release the new WAVETABLES module, the product of a very fruitful cooperation between tangible waves and Dove-Audio.
The WAVETABLES module is a high quality sound module based on the wavetable technology first heard on the PPG range of synthesisers. There are a number of different tables each with their own unique sound, from very gentle, though vocal sounds, into rich bell like tones to harsh digital tones.
It offers the following features:
This is the first of a series of modules that introduce a high level of digital synthesis to the AE modular palette. WAVETABLES works with a 32-bit microcontroller and 16-bit audio output. Therefore the price is higher than the average AE module, but still very affordable for the quality.
Many thanks for Felix from The Tuesday Night Machines for making the following amazing and comprehensive introduction video:
This module is now available for purchase in the shop.
