thanks for posting! will check it out :)
since there are based on ppg, i guess waldorf will have our heads if they are added into the surge 3rd party wavetable library, so i guess these will need to be kept separate. or WDYT?

these are not like the ensoniq vfx wavetables which are very close replicas of the original transwaves. these are mangled ppg waveforms not even distinguishable as such. its like
some author getting upset because the phrase "once upon a time was" is in his book and
it is written "upon a time once was" in mine.

ugh, but...python. this would be a nice little windows .exe utility
python means it can work on multiple operating systems, that's good, right?

having a windows .exe means that everyone else needs to winebottle it or whatever. that's great for windows users, terrible for everyone else. that's not good, right?

i'd get it if surge was windows only but it ain't.

yeah but sometimes i want a car thats ready to drive instead of building
it myself. :hihi:

maybe i'll pick up visual basic and try to write it myself! :lol:

that'd be wonderful. you can always shoot a pull request up to http://github.com/surge-synthesizer/surge and have it be added into the github repository so many others can benefit from having access to it! :)

If you are curious there is Nuitka which can compile Python for Windows and other platforms, you may be able to compile that script into an .exe without dependencies.

hmm.. okay.

just in case:
Exploding a .wt into .wav files placed into a folder
./scripts/wt-tool/wt-tool.py -a explode -f fromthis.wt -d tothisfolder/

Creating a .wt from .wav files present in a folder
./scripts/wt-tool/wt-tool.py -a create -f newwt.wt -d fromthisfolder/

You’re free to of course. But python3 takes about 30 seconds to install on windows. https://www.python.org/downloads/windows/. It’s fairly unlikely to be faster for you to reimplement the python script in Visual Basic, but I don’t know how fast a coder you are of course :)

Do what works for you, but windows runs python and the associated scripts no problem. If you choose to use the python scripts we shipped I hope they work for your needs or share feedback if they don’t; and if you choose to write your own, we’d be glad to include them in the repo as appropriate if you want.

That’s interesting. I had been led to beleive Audioterm was windows only. Where do you get the mac version?

people seem to be intent on winebottling / wine versions. i'm yet to try it out.

i'd love to know if audioterm can handle 1024 sample wavetables, since waveedit only exports / imports 256 sample wavetables.

Unfortunately there is no MAC version. The video is only intended to represent the Audioterm with Wine and the MAC works.
