Sorry for the stupid question... but how do you actually use the converter? What files do you download, how do you run them, how do you export? I thought I knew, but whatever application I got just exports blank patches that don't even load properly in Zebra, so I have no idea what I'm doing.

Even loading something like this-

Doesn't work for me. I see the patch and can click on it in the browser, but it doesn't change any settings at all.

I think you have to put them into the oscillator presets location and load it from there... and on a pre-2.5 Zebra you might have to wiggle the waveform knob a bit.

You don't load them from the preset browser. You load them from the oscillator browser. You have 4 "squares" in the oscillator module which are called "Mix" FX" "Phase" the leftmost is most likely called "Default". That's the name of the loaded OSC preset. Click it and the OSC preset browser pops up and shows all OSC presets.

Mine are installed in C:\Program Files\u-he\Zebra2\Modules\Oscillator. Dunno where they're located on OSX. However the clue is in Modules/Osc so they're in a similar location on OSX.

I have a question...Why doesn't Zebra already have a wav import function? Isn't it about time? o_O Or does it already have it and I don't know...

Edit: Actually, why isn't there a function to just use a wav for the osc in the drop down menu with the spectromorph thing and the geomorph or w/e things...you know what I'm talking about...right?

It's because I consider the spline approach (GeoMorph and SpectroMorph) superior to the wavetable approach (GeoBlend and SpectroBlend). As soon as people start dragging waveforms into the editor (which are inherently Blend and not Morph), editing waveforms by hand is dead.

Who says it will be dead? People will still want to make their own waveforms. I myself like to doodle in it.

Here is a choir patch for sound effects. It sounds best when played as a chord with 3 or more voices. And the keys must be hold for a while.

The patch uses the cluster mode and the patch are named after it.

Cheers

Those two sounds were used in "Angels and Demons" movie, but I plan to do a deal to make them (plus many others from A+D, as well as from "The Dark Knight") available. If that works out, the answer will eventually be "yes".
Any news Howard? Would be a nice Christmas surprise to patch addicts like me :roll:

I have one suggestion, web link to user waveforms. There must be a lot of templates around now. Why not collect them at one place? I would gladly share mine.

Ahh, I overlooked something here :oops: I forgot that the link covered everything from patch presets to MSEG and OSC. Should have browsed more carefully. Thank you!

I tried this wavtozebra thing (java) last night and didn't get good results. When I convert a wav into h2p then load it in the OSC1 (example), it makes a really quiet OSC even though my wav was HUGE and almost peaking ?!

does when you upload this kind of OSC, it always end up in the same "oscillator mode" (spectroblend, geomorph, ect.) ???

There are some patches from Urs and others, linked from that page, that use the scripting built into Zebra. Is there documentation of the scripting language available somewhere?

Thanks,
