AKWF Waveforms (4300 free samples)

All in one pack!

You probably want to download one of the all in one pack. It contains all the single cycle wave forms. The wave format work with many samplers and synths and there are some packages containing samples formatted for ones that need a different format. I choose to sample thes waveforms at D2+2 which equals 600 samples. The biggest reason for that was because I was using Fibonacci sequences to build sounds. As the synths, samplers and computers got better at handling single cycle wave forms it made less sense but I kept the standard of 600 samples anyway.


Wave format (all in one) (suitable for many synthesizers and samplers such as Native Instrument Reaktor, Mutable Instruments Shruti, Image lines Sytrus, Image Line Monomachine, Big Tick Rhino, U-he Zebra, Camel Audio Alchemy, Image Line Harmor, Image Line Harmless, Image Line 3xOsc, Elektron Octatrack, Ableton Sampler, Blip Interactive Nanostudio, Single Cell Software Caustic etc.)


Formatted for Corona and Discovery Pro thanks to discoDSP / George.

Blended

I mixed wave forms in a analogue mixing console to get blended waveforms.

Perfect waves

The most perfect waves I could produce.

Basic waves

A collection of basic waves but taken from various sources. When I started to sample one cycle waveforms I found that a saw waveform coming out of one machine isn’t like the saw waveform coming out of the next one…

Snippets

Waveforms sampled from really short pieces of anything. Television, the trains going by, the microwave oven, etc.

Stereo

These are stereo waveforms, not many synthesizers can read those…

Stringbox

Waveforms sampled from my favourite string box. It sounds nothing like a string quartet but I love it. The string box is more or less these waveforms + a cheesy chorus.

Symmetric

Symmetric objects are beautiful.
