Galbanum say that they have gone Googol with the Galbanum Architecture Waveforms 2010, here's what they have to say about it...
This is an absolutely massive collection of over 25,000 meticulously designed wavetables provided in several industry-standard formats. Wavetables are single cycle periodic waveforms that form the most fundamental building block of synthesis. They are the sound generators, and can be thought of as the oscillator of a classic analog synth, but they provide infinitely more variability in wave-shape and spectrum. They are chiefly responsible for determining a sound's primary timbre or "tone color". This collection offers an unfathomable variety of waveforms logically organized into 102 categories and provides the following benefits:
A simple and inexpensive method of quickly and effortlessly expanding the awesome potential of supported synth and sampler instruments
Over ten times as many waveforms as the previous generation including 58 new waveform classes based on new research
Vast expansion of available timbre pallet for wavetable synths and samplers
Newly developed timbres offering fresh, unique starting points which stand out from the competition
Transformation of sampler instruments into synth instruments
Bleeding-edge sound-design using complex waveforms as modulation sources and other advanced techniques
Algorithmically developed content that is mathematically perfect and the highest fidelity of anything similar in the market
By far the largest and most diverse collection of its kind on the market
Perfect integration with industry-leading synths and samplers allowing easy navigation and management
The Galbanum Architecture Waveforms 2010 collection is available in three industry-standard Wav format varieties, as well as three proprietary formats to directly support award-winning synthesizers:
Wav32: 32-bit Floating Point Wav format for use wavetable synths that support Wav import such as Cakewalk Rapture and many others. The Sample Rate header is set at 96K, however sample-rate is generally irrelevant in proper wavetable synths such as Rapture which transpose, resample, and perfectly anti-alias the single-cycle waveform using industry leading synthesis engines to provide perfectly clean oscillators over the entire musical pitch range. This should be the default choice for most Wav format users.
Wav24: 24bit, 44.1 Wav format for use in hardware synths and samplers that do not support floating point formats. Choose this format only if your software host or hardware instrument does not support 32-bit FP files.
Wav64: 64-bit Floating Point Wav format for use wavetable synths that support 64-bit Wav import such as Cakewalk Rapture and others. The Sample Rate header is set at 96K. This is a premium format offered for developers, professional sound-designers, and extreme purists who want absolute perfection. Pricing for this format is slightly more expensive, as these files represent our source files and are the highest fidelity we have available.
ABS: The proprietary GLY format for use in Native Instruments' Absynth synthesizer. Absynth can also load Wav format for oscillator use, but only GLY format may be used as LFOs, and GLY format is much more convenient than loading Wav format one at a time in Absynth.
ALC: Two proprietary formats for Camel Audio's Alchemy synthesizer. Both Oscillator and LFO formats all provided for all waveforms.
MS: The proprietary Wave format for U&I Software's MetaSynth for use as oscillators and envelopes in the FX Room.
