“If you are looking for more creative content and sound design options for Absynth then look no further then Architecture Waveforms! They will open up a ton of possibilities for Sound design and Creativity in Absynth. Just replacing the wave forms of basic patches with the Architecture ones will give you great results and for the price you really can't lose! There is enough content here in every category to satisfy the most hardcore tweaker. A must for anyone who owns Absynth! Go for it”
“I'm quite pleased with this purchase and it gave me a reason to explore Absynth a bit more in depth. There is certainly a lot of value here for the price if you are the type of person that takes the time to dig into sound design even a little rather than just simply using existing presets.”
“It is a no-brainer. I made history the day I posted here ! Personally that is really saying a lot. It's definatley worth your while. To be honest I think the developer could have charged me ten times the price and I would think just as highly of the library.”
“In any case, you are to be congratulated for producing a truly amazing set of ultra-precise waveforms. This lib is really the basis of almost any conceivable type of wavetable synthesis. I really appreciate the category notes, too. I think every Absynth user should get this lib, as it really provides the full spectrum of wave types, in a totally systematic and well-organized fashion. It's wonderfully useful.”
“These waveforms are excellent starting points for sonic explorations with Absynth. Navigating between all of them (1000+) is a bit cumbersome given the way Absynth is implemented, but this is no fault of Galbanum (NOTE: fixed in Absynth V4). At the price, this collection is a steal, and I thoroughly recommend it for anyone into sound design with Absynth.”
“Hiya! I'm only starting to dig deeper into these things, and this has become a great way to explore the depths of Absynth and see what parameter affects another, etc. For the price, it's almost silly to not buy Architecture NI. I really should hook up some studio monitors and frighten the neighbors.”
“After messing around with this set for a while -- very easy install in Absynth 4, good installation instructions, too, and easy to use -- I declare this $25 very well spent. Absynth is scarcely short of surprising sounds and effects, but the beauty of the Galbanum set is that you can take some of the more conventional keys or pads and substitute some fresh (more warped) waveform and give yourself quite unpredictable surprises. Definitely a source for unique sound production: I mean, pair 1000+ souns with another 1000 or so from Biomechanoid, then add 1,800 waveforms, and you have ... a very lot of choices.”

Architecture ABS Waveforms 2, is a collection of over 1,800 meticulously designed wavetables provided in Native Instruments Absynth (GLY) 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". This collection offers a huge variety of waveforms logically organized in sub-folder categories.

Leading Native Instruments Absynth 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-designers, 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 Absynth'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 give 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. In addition to being used as Oscillators, these waveforms can just as readily be used as LFO shapes and waveshaping curves. We encourage you to explore these immensely powerful areas if you are interested in the true bleeding-edge of modern sound-design.
The Architecture ABS Waveforms collection was developed largely outside Absynth 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. Absynth'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 Absynth, transforming these even more with Absynth's built in tools yielded amazing new possibilities. We encourage you to do the same.
