Device Details


Name | Version: Image2Wavetable 1.0
Author: ndivuyo
Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: Turn an image into a wavetable to be used by Live's wavetable (and others). With the new Ableton Live update users can drop their own wavetables on the native Wavetable Instrument. Simply drop an image, save as wave, and then drop that file onto Ableton Wavetable (must be Live 10.1 or higher!) Oh, and make sure "Raw" is enabled on the Wavetable or it won't look right!

Super simple device. Could of course be expanded, so have fun doing that if you are inclined.

NOTE: Some transparent background PNGs won't work! Just save them as jpegs.

Collaboration by me (Dillon Bastan) and Carlo Cattano

This sounds like a very creative idea. Will test it out as soon as 10.1 will be stable. Thanks!
Thanks, really nice!

(works fine in 10.1b13 beta on Windows 10)
works perfect on OSX Sierra, 10.1b13
I'm not sure how does this works. 2) says "Save then drop into Wavetable" but how do you save a .wav file with the device?
You press the circle button under "2)" that will save it
Love this! Inspiration and memories merged to create vibes. Just sublime!!!
