Bessides UVI Falcon the Galbanum wavetables also seem to be compatible with teh Waldorf Nave plugin when using the "Analyze Audio" feature for a Resynthesis of the WAV file. You could then re-save the wavetables in Nave's *.wtb format. Nave will also save the imported wavetable with your patches.

That's an enticing prospect :) Right now I'd love to use it in the synths I have: e.g. SynthMaster, Z3ta+2, Dune 2, AIR Hybrid 3, etc., with a view to unlocking even more potential when I eventually purchase Serum and Falcon. (i.e. the gift that keeps giving :))
Thanks for the compliments. For your needs Wav-32 and perhaps eventually Wavetable sound ideal.

Thanks for listening, and for all your help :)
Sure, sounds like a great idea. I'll do it in the next few days. :tu:

I forget exactly who made it made, but perhaps he will read this and claim credit for this work! Thanks!! :tu: :tu:

Now that's just the coolest. whoever it was, thanks.

That would be great, I'd appreciate it also. I'm slowly coming round to the idea of grabbing WT and WAV-32 together, it would be good to know how useful the latter will be.

Perhaps you could amend the first post here with a known compatibility list for all formats too.

I don't own Logic but MainStage3 has 'em inside the .app bundle:
/MainStage 3.app/Contents/Frameworks/MAAlchemy.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Libraries/

Tried the Galbanum ALC demo pack and they indeed appear in the osc menu and plays fine.

btw, Do anyone still have the old wav2alchemy utility?
I think it was hosted by Camel but I'm too late to the party, please PM me if you do.

edit: got it from the author, thank you Martin!!

good find. Its in the same place inside LogicXPro.app. However the demo wavetable didn't work for me in logic under WaveOsc. I can put them in a folder and the folder will appear in Alchemy, but not the actual wav. Other waveosc files appears to be *.raw, whatever that is.

Alchemy only reads .raw as VA oscs I guess, Galbanum already have an Alchemy version in that format (they're not scannable wavetables but band-limiting variations of the same waveform), that's what I'm using.

Re the questions, about Dune, I am told that the new Wavetable format will work in 2.x shortly. No special format will be required. :tu:

I am hoping/pushing for them to be usable in the newly announced Tone 2 Icarus too.

I bought the wavetable format today hoping that I would be able to use it in Dune2 eventually so this is very good news! :clap:

Thanks. Please keep us informed of its progress.

Wonderful to hear that!! Just got Dune 2 few days ago, nice timing.

I think 200+ wavetables is definitely more user-friendly than 25,000+ single-cycles, even without modulation, scrolling smoothly through waveforms should be a interesting way to find what sounds right.

Does any one know if the wavetable format is compatible with Wolfgangpalm PPG WaveGenerator, WaveMapper and Phonem

For Phonem as far as I can tell I would have to import the wavetables into WaveGenerator then export them to Phonem, at that point they would be converted. Phonem reads wts. format, so would this step even be necessary?

http://wolfgangpalm.com/wg.html

Here is a list of some of the specs for WaveGenerator:

Creation of your own waves and wavetables.
Playful sound creation simply by drawing or picking harmonics
256 waves assembled within a wave grid
3 Audio Oscillators

Also I don't know what the Wave bit depth these plugins can read. Are there any potential problems if say the plugins only read 24bit waves, would the 32bit format still work. Thanks.
