Since the biggest fun of single cycle waves is making your own, I was wondering if there were some suggestions on how to make them.
I guess that the TB2 was built around the specs used by Adventure Kid for his single cycle waves (D2+2 600samples), but maybe there is more that needs to be known… so how does one go about making some single cycle waves for the TB2? Btw. I don’t really get what Adventure Kid means by “D2+2”, D2 is clear, but what does the +2 mean, +2 cents? +2 semitones?December 30, 2014 at 11:25 am #2682
Great question, so I’ve made a step-by-step guide: Make your own single cycle waveforms
Hmm, unfortunately I also have no idea what the +2 signifies.
Have fun!December 30, 2014 at 11:37 am #2684
I forgot to add that the TB2 saves the waveshapes for the oscillators and the LFO along with the patch, making patches simple to share.
If you come up with something cool, do share!December 30, 2014 at 4:21 pm #2687
Cool! thanks a lot! I did experiment a bit and it seems that too short cycles produce some really glitchy noises (god to know 😀 ) but anything close to the 600 samples used by Adventure Kid seem to work fine. I’ll experiment more and if I have a cool patch, I’ll share it for sure!December 30, 2014 at 4:25 pm #2688
Btw. do you know a software that let’s me stretch a sample with a per-sample accuracy? For example: let’s say I have some samples of random circuit bent gear I want to take single cycles out, but the cycle is too long and I don’t want to cut it off, it would be cool to tell the editor to just “squeeze” it to 600samples…January 11, 2015 at 10:18 am #2802
Installed the Audicity program and now trying to open one of the patch files. It will not recognize the file if I change the .tb2 name to .wav? Not sure if that’s how the program expects the file. What do I need to do to open one to edit or convert? I have not changed any of the default settings in the program.January 11, 2015 at 10:31 am #2804
Audacity works only with the raw .wav files – you can’t open a TB2 patch with it. So the idea was that you create a single cycle waveform (see the link earlier in this thread), load it on an SD card and use it in a new patch on the TB2. You’d load it as one of the oscillators – Usr1 (for oscillator 1) or Usr2 (for oscillator 2).January 12, 2015 at 3:46 am #2806
@racer1tn: the.TB2 files are preset files that you can use on your Grooversizer TB2. Just put them on the SD card and you will be able to load them on the synth. On the other hand if you want to make some single cycle waveforms for it you’ll have to work with wav files.
.TB2 files are not just waveforms, they contain all the data that make up a preset.March 16, 2015 at 5:34 pm #2987
+2 stands for +2 cents!!March 16, 2015 at 5:42 pm #2988
Thought so… thanks for confirming it!February 19, 2016 at 7:27 am #3578
can the wav files be in multiple sub folders or on the root ?
can they be named properly/short words etc or need to use numbers or something ?
and when cycling through them , should i hear them when used as usr waveforms , or do i need to click ok each time.. do they auto load like cycling through the patch files?

1) The files can be in as many folders as you like, but the folders should be on the root (ie. not nested / only one level deep).
2) They can be named properly when you view them on the computer, but the TB2 file system uses the 8.3 convention, so they will appear truncated on the TB2 display.
3) You don’t need to click on the files – if you have keyboard keys held down, you will hear the change in wave shape as you scroll.February 20, 2016 at 8:22 pm #3581
thanks , will rearrange things a little on my sd card
