Wolfgang Palm PPG WaveMapper

Wolfgang Palm has announced the release of version 2.0 of PPG WaveMapper, a synthesizer instrument for iOS.

In final development the PPG WaveMapper offers iPad users a second synthesiser to compliment the already loved PPG WaveGenerator from Wolfgang Palm. PPG WaveMapper allows the user the opportunity to create limitless sounds from this unique and powerful new technology.

PPG WaveMapper features the Sound Map, which maps the various sounds in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper features a new synthesis system which maps the waveforms of a sound into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis so unique.

Changes in PPG WaveMapper v2.0

  • Inter-app Audio (IAA) with MIDI.
  • Load audio files from Media Library – Analysis page.
  • Wavetable exchange via pasteboard with WaveGenerator.
  • App switching with WaveGenerator.
  • Audiobus 1.0.2.5 compatible.
  • Minor bug fixes.

The app is available to purchase for $19.99 USD.
