The Microwave Choir for Zebra
for Zebra by pocvecem on 24 December 2013
If someone would ask me what's my all time favourite synth sound i'd immediately reply: the PPG/Microwave choir.

This piece of synthetic fake but also to some extent real sounding choir keeps me fascinated since the early 1980s when i heard it the first time.

Read the included patch info and use your midi controllers to bring life into this patch.
MW - modulates Key Follow amount and opens filter
Breath (CC2) - Formant shift
Aftertouch - adds vibrato

Have fun with it,

exitLaub - Xmas 2013 Zebra wavetables
for Zebra by pocvecem on 21 December 2013
Hi folks!
This is a collection of 19 wavetables for Zebra/-lette. The original waves i made with different synths like Microwave2 + SoundDiver, Yamaha SY99, Kawai K5000, Korg Poly800, Kawai 100F and NI Razor. Then i put together some wavetables with Wav2Zebra.
Due to the lack of time for making some nice presets or even a complete soundset i decided to contribute
them to the Zebra community as a little Christmas present. Perhaps you can find use for them and make
some interesting or even useful sounds.

Would be nice to hear some sounds you made with these waves. Or even better if you would make them public
here.

There are two folders:
(1) exitLaub - Xmas 2013 - wavetables
This contains the oscillator presets
(2) exitLaub - Xmas 2013 - examples
19 Zebra presets. These are only simple sweeping pads to showcase the wavetables.

Well, i'm curious what you make out of them.

Cheers,
Gerald - exitLaub -

War drums Hollo
for Zebra by hollo on 17 February 2012
Just 1 patch we talked about in the forum: Transformers
This is a set of three separate drumkits, each made with only one instance of Zebra. They're very keyboard-player worthy and they should have you head-bobbing in no time. Each kit has fully implemented XY controls. I'd like to release a bank of these to sell along side of my future, ever evolving Cinematic Soundbank. If you'd be interested in buying a bigger collection of such kits, let me know.
A couple things: These kits have no real toms and also, they have no modwheel controls as of now.
Also, if you use them in your music, let me hear it! Enjoy!

Zebroscillators 2.5
for Zebra by Sendy on 1 May 2011
Version 2.5 supercedes version 2 by adding more wavetables and improving the readme text. Second version of my wavetable compilation featuring bare oscillator presets which create experimental variations and transformations of classic synthesizer waveforms, similar to PWM, sync, distortion, spectral filtering, and morphing. See the readme file for more details.

Woodwind 1
for Zebra by Ingo_D on 27 December 2010
My first attempts to create Zebralette patches from real or virtual instrument waveforms. The waveforms come from samples of a Yamaha VL70-m synthesizer and of a (real) flute. I used a little tool I wrote to merge the sampled waveforms into a Zebralette preset. These presets are optimized for use with a MIDI Wind Controller rather than with a keyboard controller (CC#2 modulates WaveWarp and volume).
 
Zebra - Aspect of the Comb
for Zebra by Esgalachoir on 29 November 2010

Yep. Agreed! :) When you got Zebra and you can't imagine any new sound to make, something's wrong with your imagination. (Perhaps tired...)

Love this one too!... so much! Got it around second year now and I can promise you this fascination with OSC's, OSCFX, MSEGs etc etc doesn't end.... AMAZING synth.

18 December 2011 at 12:17pmproletkult

Glad you agree Farley. Should have added that there is a very clever promotion going on... after taking a photograph of what ever analogue synth you are retiring because of Zebra and sending it in - you get a $50 discount!! Good for your pocket and their ego!!

18 December 2011 at 2:20pmUrs

Thanks so much proletkult! Happy that you like it :)

Cheers,

;) Urs

18 December 2011 at 5:16pmproletkult

You're welcomed, Urs and congratulations on a stunning product.

22 December 2011 at 8:45amHoward

"So inspiring is the whole experience of discovering Zebra2 that the manual (which has been critised by some) works, quite rightly, more as a great reference point as you venture through this sonic jungle".

Ha! I reviewed Zebra in 2007 and criticised the documentation as well as the presets. Since then the manual has been completely rewritten, and the presets have been retired/replaced... ;-)

22 December 2011 at 10:53amproletkult

I'll be honest with you, Howard. I'd tried Zebra 1 and found it fun but no replacement for other synths I had. The development since then has been on a scale you'd expect from a big set up like Spectrasonics. Fantastic acheivement.

30 April 2012 at 2:04amliquidsound

There are two synth I can't live without, Zebra and Surge.

if I had to choose, I'll keep Zebra.

Thanks to everyone for sharing your Talent..

2 April 2013 at 9:31pmbabyblue

hi,.

i just bought zebra today, because i like some of its sounds, but i agree, many sounds are over-effected. When turning the wet knob down, the sound is not really good anymore. In my opinion, the reason is first of all the looppoint of the waveforms. Especially with Pad Sounds, you can hear the loop of the used sample, the higher note is looping faster than the lower, resulting in an unsteady, not smooth sound. But this i heard nearly with every Softsynth. But i heard a few sounds, where this is not so obvious. So i hope, it is possible, to create really smooth pad sounds.

Is there a tutorial online "How to make Sounds with Zebra"? The userguide is not sufficient for me: The interface is really overwhelming.

2 April 2013 at 9:50pmHoward

@Babyblue: There are no samples in Zebra2, and therefore no looping or loop points.

BTW Zebra2 Tutorials are here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8B3F7A60F7C76BA
... but I would recommend that you study the manual in more depth first - start at the beginning, read very carefully, understand.

2 April 2013 at 10:53pmontrackp

I agree with Howard completely. Read the manual carefully, tweak the various parameters to understand what they do, and turn modules off and on to hear the results. You might also want to research some basics of different types of synthesis so you can really understand. I also recommend that as you go thru the presets you focus on the simpler structures so it is easier to understand what is going on.

And watch every single one of the tutorials! More than once....

You may have to dig around a little to find the waves that "speak" to you -- and remember, each wave has 16 possible iterations, some of which are completely different as you cycle through them.

Zebra is a beast for sound design, it's worth the time to learn how to use it.

3 April 2013 at 8:42ambabyblue

thanks Howard and ontrackp for your constructive words! I will do my best and dive into the secrets of zebra. When you say there are no samples used as groundstructeres for tweaking them with the different oscs, LFOs, envs etc., i must believe you. I came to that conviction, when i played a (one) note, i heard a repeating cycle, playing this note lets say 3 notes lower, i hear this repeating cycle too, but this cycle lasts a bit longer, resulting in an unsteady, not smooth sound, when playing both notes together.

But as i said, i try my best, to achieve what i am looking for. Thanks again for your advice and the link.

uups! just tried the Link, doesn't work....

6 April 2013 at 7:00amHoward

True Babyblue, the direct link to the YT playlist doesn't work (strange!), so here's the channel:

http://www.youtube.com/user/uheplugins.

3 April 2013 at 2:44pmontrackp

The cycle speed of a LFO or MSEG can be modulated by key follow (or by specific notes for that matter) so the speed can change as you go up or down the keyboard. My advice is to deconstruct the patches. Go thru module by module and double click on modulation controls, zero out modulation amounts in the matrix and you'll start seeing how the modulators can affect cycling of filter cutoff, pitch, etc....

Just search on youtube for the tutorials, they come up all over the place.

3 April 2013 at 11:04pmPhader

@ontrackp.

you say you want warmer filters in the next version,,,.

Have you thought about getting the dark zebra upgrade?

it has a few additions, DIVA filters being one of them.

4 April 2013 at 12:22amhollo

Hehe, this was my fav because it's so presonal to me :).

How to choose the right directory where the data of zebra will be installed.

13 November 2013 at 2:22amclangorous

Disappointed in the Zebra2 demo. The synth seems good but it's hard to tell because as soon as I start tweaking it starts dropping out. First time I tried it was just the static which is annoying but not too bad. But now I have to keep reloading a new instrument track to get it to even play more than one note. Evidently I am in the minority here, because I do not find anyone else posting similar. But had to be honest...it's hard to evaluate it when I can't really use it for even 15 minutes. If I have to use presets, and cannot create big sounds with it, then it's not going to be as useful to me. Would rather have a time limited demo...even one day would be better than this. Not meaning to be disrespectful or overly bitchy because obviously a lot of work went into it and I respect that. But that does not automatically mean it will be good for me personally.

Having got that out of my system, it seems to work in Studio One 2 so I'll probably buy it based on the stellar reviews of most everyone.

13 November 2013 at 9:21amHoward

@bksherwood: Zebra2's demo restriction is quasi-random notes (not "static"), so I'm wondering what happened there. Anyway, 15 minutes per session should be plenty of time to find out whether a product suits you. You just have to bite the bullet and reload, or purchase a license.

13 November 2013 at 4:20pmclangorous

@Howard: Then it sounds like what I was experiencing were not the demo limitations. I did purchase Zebra2 last night and I am VERY happy with it. Was able to take what I know and create some pretty awesome initial sounds. So far none of the notes dropping out or static etc. After working with it last night, I think Zebra2 is going to be like moving from a Model T to a rocket ship; it will drastically accelerate my progress and capabilities.

But I must say...wow! I never expected a response from you directly. I see that as a huge value of owning Zebra2. The community of Zebra2 is something you can't really put a price on, especially as someone who wants to excel at this stuff. Thank you very much for taking the time to respond.

13 November 2013 at 5:42pmsnigelx

Well, you absolutely made the right decision then. You've just ensured yourself a long winter with a fat grin. Not only do you have a deep synthesizer in your possession, you have a deep and active Zebra user community and lots of freely available and commercial patch banks at your fingertips (Check the official KVR U-he forums). Check out U-he's YouTube profile while you're at it. There are tonnes of excellent official pointer videos for consumption. Enjoy your striped synth-beast.

13 November 2013 at 8:48pmclangorous

Thanks snigelx. Spot one with the fat grin! Honestly, I am not sure I will need another synth for a long, long time...except Dark Zebra...that I am definitely buying. My interest is primarily big, unique orchestral sounds and DZ surely fits the bill.

So far I have reviewed the manual, downloaded the free patches from http://www.u-he.com/PatchLib/zebra.html, started on the Youtube tutorials which are awesome, and started to decompose some awesome HS patches. I see also some of the patches from the community are designed to teach you things like FM. Very cool.

Thanks for the lead on the KVR U-he forums. Just starting to realize how much is here on KVR. Been missing out for sure.

19 November 2013 at 10:50pmpdxindy

I have had Zebra for close to 8 years and I still discover clever new tricks... and of course it keeps getting better. Zebra just received a sweet new distortion module (actually 4 of them)!.

Thanks for the heads-up on that. It's been a while since I've stopped by the forum. Nice news.
