I need a digitally created water sound, that is convincing enough but also not too realistic sounding. I have good ableton live and a bit MaxMSP knowledge but i don't know how to design this specific sound. can someone give me a tip?

    What kind of 'water sound'? The ocean, a stream, waterfall, rain, a tap running in a sink...

Andy Farnell's Pure Data patches sure will help you a lot!

It would be nice if you specified the kind of water sounds... Anyway, here you probably have most flavours you want:

Water bubbles Running water Pouring water Rain

Go and get them :)


Someone made a semi-convincing wave-sound with Pd :

. The patch is certainly quite straightforward to reproduce in MaxMSP.
