Entries found for search: wavetable

wavetable : The contents of the waveform ROM. A set of numbers stored in memory (ROM) and used to generate a waveform. The wavetable synthesizer on a soundcard typically plays sounds whose digital representations have been stored in a wavetable. See sound synthesis, wavetable synthesis.

wavetable lookup : The process of reading the numbers in a wavetable (not necessarily in linear order from beginning to end) and sending them to a voice channel.

wavetable synthesis : A method of generating waveforms through lookup tables. Digitized waveforms are organized in a bank, the wavetable, (or table) where they can be randomly accessed. In many wavetable synths, the resulting waveform is used in subtractive synthesis.
