Waldorf Quantum & Iridium Wavetables
These wavetables work on the Waldorf Quantum and Iridium, but could work on other hardware or software synths that use standard user supplied wavetables. Many synths have limitations such as a specific wave length, number of waveforms or encoded slot information. The Quantum and Iridium have more liberal limitations than any other hardware synth that I am aware of.
Current Quantum/Iridium firmware has a maximum of 2,000 waveforms per wavetable:
- 4096 sample period x 217 waveforms
- 2048 sample period x 430 waveforms
- 1024 sample period x 846 waveforms
- 512 sample period x 1,645 waveforms
- 256 sample period x 2,000 waveforms
- 128 sample period x 2,000 waveforms
- 64 sample period x 2,000 waveforms
1000 wavetables each zip – 100 waveforms each, 2048 sample period

Quantum instructions: Wavetable Oscillator > Timbre > Tools > Import from .wav > Set drive in upper left corner to Samples, USB Drive or SD Card > Select a file (eg the first one) > Set period to appropriate length 256, 1024 or 2048 etc. > Load. Then you can use the on-screen [prev] and [next] to move through the wavetable files.
Note: Firmware 2.0 works perfect, however on Firmware 1.3.0, your Import from .wav may not read the SD card, until you read it somewhere else. One solution is Wavetable Oscillator > Timbre > Presets > Export > Cancel > Close, and that will read the SD card so you can then follow the instructions above.
Waldorf Quantum & Iridium Utilities
SampleRobot 6.5 Pro $301.00
This does not currently support Quantum/Iridium sample exports, but it is planned for the next version.
