Architecture MS Waveforms, is a collection of over 1,800 meticulously designed wavetables provided in U&I Software's MetaSynth ".wave" format. Wavetables are single cycle periodic waveforms that form the most fundamental building block of synthesis. They are the sound generators, and can be thought of as the oscillator of a classic analog synth, but they provide infinitely more variability in shape and spectrum. They are chiefly responsible for determining a given sound's primary timbre, or "tone color". In addition to being used as oscillators, these waveforms can also function as envelope shapes in the MetaSynth Effects Room!

Leading U&I Software MetaSynth users who have aspirations to be on the cutting edge of modern sound-design, or lead new movements in all forms of progressive electronica will find this collection invaluable. Key users include sound-sesigners, producers, scoring professionals, artists, multi-media developers, and all synthesis/sound-design enthusiasts who are looking to expand their sonic pallet into new territories.
This product is a simple and inexpensive method to quickly and effortlessly expand MetaSynth's awesome potential. Most analog and retro synths use three or four waveshapes as a starting point for synthesis: Sine, Saw, Square, etc. Combined with a good filter these can be a decent starting point for designing many classic sounds. However, there are many sounds and timbres that can be better created by using different shapes to begin with, and there are many other new shapes/sounds, that are simply impossible to create with other methods. These can include natural instruments, complex FM sounds, AM Sounds, and a vast assortment of edgy digital sounds that are well suited for modern, future-forward music styles including various forms of electronic music and motion picture work.
The Architecture MS Waveforms collection was developed largely outside MetaSynth itself using tools that allowed for a new level of detail and precision that was previously impossible. Many of them were computed algorithmically using Visual Studio scripting. Many others were tediously edited at the single sample level - single sample point that is - within Sound Forge. Doing this ensured that all waveforms were as mathematically perfect as possible and represent exactly the perfect form for a given function. MetaSynth's built-in Waveform editing tools are very powerful already, but we found more precise methods to get exactly what we were after. Furthermore, we found that once we had some basic waveforms generated outside of MetaSynth, transforming these even more with MetaSynth's built in tools yielded amazing new possibilities. We encourage you to do the same.
