PPG Wave 2.V - Classic Wavetable Synthesizer for VST
PPG Wave 2.V is the reincarnation of a cult, which started back in 1982 and is now available as a VST Instrument for your PC and Mac VST system.
The Wave 2 series was the first digital wavetable synthesizer with analog filters, heralding a revolution in both sound and concept. The Wave's most interesting feature was its ability to sweep through 64 waveforms in what PPG called a wavetable.
Almost 2000 waveforms were available within the Wave's 32 internal wavetables. The result of this wavetable technology is that the PPG instrument has a much broader palette and more animated sound than typical analog synthesizers of the early 80's, which tended to have only a few static waveforms such as sawtooth, pulse, or triangle. The PPG sound was very unique and identifiable.
Now Waldorf brings this exclusive sound back to life with all the advantages a completely integrated software production environment such as Cubase VST has to offer: The outputs appear directly in the VST mixer, so effects and EQ can be applied like any other audio channel. MIDI tracks are routed directly to the input of the PPG Wave 2.V without involving the vagaries of MIDI cables and interfaces.
The polyphony now depends solely on the CPU power of your computer and opening up to 8 PPG Wave 2.Vs, each with 8 times multitimbral capability, gives you more than enough space for your sound imagination. A new graphical page offers easy editing of envelopes, generators and Cutoff/Emphasis.
The combination of modern software technology plus the charm and massive sound potential of the "old" digital days results in a unique instrument which brings back individuality and pure fun: The PPG Wave 2.V.
