Sequential has added a significant enhancement to the Pro 3 multi-filter mono synth -- support for user-created wavetables.
Sequential's web-based utility Wavetable Generator allows users to convert up to 16 single-cycle waves into a Pro 3 compatible wavetable and load it into any of the 32 user wavetable slots on the synth. This significantly expands the sound palette of the instrument.
Custom wavetables are generated as SysEx files that can be archived and shared with other Pro 3 owners. To use the feature, users will need to upgrade to version 1.1 of the Pro 3 operating system, available on the Support page of the Sequential website. Both the Wavetable Generator utility and OS upgrade are provided free of charge to Pro 3 owners.
Sequential founder Dave Smith, told us, "How do you make an awesome-sounding hybrid synth even better? By letting users import their own wavetables. It opens up a lot of new sonic territory for the Pro 3. We hope users get crazy with it. Sequential chose to provide the utility as a web app for easy access and broad support. We wanted to make getting custom waves into the Pro 3 as simple as possible. Ease of use is always a big priority on our synths."
