The Sequential Pro 3 is a delicious multi-filter mono and 3-voice paraphonic synth that features 2 analogue VCOs and a Wavetable oscillator and they’ve just opened up that third digital oscillator to user-created wavetables.
Pro 3 Wavetables
Sequential has released a new web-based Wavetable Generator utility that allows users to convert up to 16 single-cycle waveforms into a Pro 3 compatible wavetable. These can be loaded into any of the 32 user wavetable slots on the synth.
These user-wavetables are generated as Sys-Ex files and can be shared and loaded on other Pro 3 synths. All you need to do is update your Pro 3 with the free 1.1 firmware and you’re good to go.
“How do you make an awesome-sounding hybrid synth even better? By letting users import their own wavetables,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “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. Added Smith: “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.”
Still no sign of that new synthesizer Dave said he was working on back in April.
