Here's a link to Adventure Kid's huge collection of single-cycle waveforms to load into the Deluge as a synth, by switching the sample playback mode to loop.

Quote DocRompler underneath here regarding instructions for use with Deluge:
1. Set one or both oscillators to "sample"
2. Select any of the waveforms as the sample
3. Set the sample mode to "Loop"
4. Transpose the oscillator down 2 semitones and 2 cents, or up 10 semitones
5. Turn the volume of the oscillator down to about 25 as these waveforms tend to overdrive the amp. This is especially true if they're used polyphonically.

If u benefit from it, consider supporting his hard work and the fact that's he's giving these out for free :)

Peace!

    The ability to use these waveforms is a hugely underrated feature of this machine. They add a high degree of flexibility to the character of the subtractive synth. I think that Synthstrom should officially acknowledge this as a feature. For those who haven't tried using them, here is a step by step guide on how to get them to sound right and match with the tuning of the synth:

    1. Set one or both oscillators to "sample"
    2. Select any of the waveforms as the sample
    3. Set the sample mode to "Loop"
    4. Transpose the oscillator down 2 semitones or up 10 semitones
    5. Turn the volume of the oscillator down to about 25 as these waveforms tend to overdrive the amp. This is especially true if they're used polyphonically.

    That's all! You now have a functioning wavetable as an oscillator.

    Nice, Doc!

    Wow @DocRompler thank you, I loaded these last night and they weren't sounding correct, I think they were overdriving when they looped. I will try this when I get out of work!

    This is an amazing feature and I was so excited when I saw that I could do this.

    Does the FM synth support SCWF's for the oscillators?
    THAT would be pretty awesome.

    Pretty sure you want to transpose 2 semitones AND 2 cents to get them bang on in tune.

    If you want to be BANG on, yes :) I'll just add that then

    Loving my Deluge. If it helps you can download these waveforms already tuned into C at https://www.inspektorgadjet.com/item/waveforms-library/ which is what I've been using before on my Digitakt.

    Sweet man :)

    Any tips in removing the click at the start of all these single cycles I've tried attack and changing sample start time with no joy. Maybe someone can share their experience

    I have also reduced the sample volume with no results . This click is very prominent especially when applying reverb.

    Have you set the sample to loop? I don't have my deluge yet (shipped!), but from what I have seen on YT, the deluge handles them just like other synths (e.g., octatrack)

    Wow, this is really great. Is there a summary somewhere where these samples are taken from? Now it's pretty much random what I select.

    I was having trouble getting good sounds out of these waveforms until I realized that I should completely turn down the volume of the second oscillator which was turned up for some reason.

    It would be great to hear individual waveforms in loop mode during cycling/browsing them!

    Oh that's are really god idea! +1

    What's the best way to load & browse these in practice on the Deluge? It's a little overwhelming! :o

    Do you keep them in separate subfolders? Or in one massive 4300 sample folder that you scroll through? Do you start to get your head around different timbres the folders offer (e.g.AKWF_0012) --or is it just fishing until something strikes your fancy?

    "Turn the volume of the oscillator down to about 25 as these waveforms tend to overdrive the amp. This is especially true if they're used polyphonically."
    And get the Inspektor Gadjet version of the samples in the middle of this thread, they're already tuned to C.

    Personally I keep them in subfolders. Sometimes I listen thru, sometimes I pick random ones, sometimes I'm searching for something :)
