alright so ive been playing around with massive the past few days, and i must say i am impressed... thought it was some gimmicky dubstep machine, but it turns out to have some real cool capabilities.
my question is about the synthesis techniques used to create the synth... its my understanding that it uses wavetables, so im assuming that the ppl at native instruments created the waveforms using some sort of program and sets of algorithms, and then took some sort of digital "snapshot" of one cycle of each waveform, and use that as the input for each wavetable... am i correct in assuming such things?
further, i would like to understand these waveforms, as some of them are quite beautiful. a lot of em i recognize as pretty common... but others are pretty out there and new to my ears.
there are some pics of them (i guess someone put em through an oscilloscope)
can i recreate these waveforms with my own math? or is it possible to take the output of massive itself and put it into my own wavetable and use it that way?
any help whatsoever would be appreciated... im new to waveform synthesis, but VERY interested and excited about it.
