How does wavetable synthesis work

What exactly is wavetable synthesis now?

I've just looked at the specTERA. Okay, the result of what you know under wavetable and in a certain way it is. It goes through the formant filter and not the oscillators. Okay, that's the same as far as the sound movement is concerned. But then you have to know exactly how the spectrum behaves with the filter in order to achieve targeted results. Or have I overlooked or misunderstood something? Because if there was a table. How do you get the entries?

That makes it just the combination, the parameters, whereby I now assume the 2 version in the explanation, the 3 should be able to do a little more there, but nothing should change in the principle, but I don't have it here yet. ..

With the spectrum oscillator you morph between two oscillator (oscillator A / B) and formant filter (filter A / B) settings and at the same time you can move the filter to the left with the spectrum parameter.
If you paint an LP filter in the filter settings, the formant filter doesn’t do too much, of course, if you draw in a few waves and peaks, things get more interesting. You can create interesting sounds with the help of the spectrum parameter. Morphing between two different Fomant filter settings and oscillator spectra increases the sound shaping possibilities even further.
At first glance this is of course only a minimal version of the wavetable synthesis, because there are only two oscillator spectra, only the formant filter can be seen as a kind of arithmetic research that generates the individual spectra to be run through to deal with the matter to make it a little more intuitive. This makes so much sense that our brain is calibrated to recognize formants and so the peaks in the spectrum are more important than the spectrum itself ...
It also makes sense from a marketing point of view, if you want more you can get the Cube
