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.

Detunized releases Micro Weave Live Pack for Ableton

Detunized has released Micro Weave, a sound library for Ableton Live.

Detunized Micro Weave

Micro Weave Live Pack is a collection of 41 expressive Ableton instruments that feature sounds from the famous Microwave 2 synthesizer. Based on Wolfgang Palm´s wavetable concept this beast was critically acclaimed when it appeared to the public in 1997.

Covering a sound spectra that ranges from powerfull bass sounds going over cutting leads to harsh pads the Microwave 2 delivered the cream to numerous dancefloor hits of the late nineties and is still doing it today.

With Micro Weave this uniqueness is now available for desktop sequencing. For the Live Pack sounds none of the original ROM-wavetables came into play. All wavetables were created from scratch using special algorithms like FM, Envelope-, Sync/Pulsewidth Modulation or Paremeter Incrementing.

Micro Weave comes with nearly 700 high quality samples that form a library of first class instruments. Equipped with carefully adjusted macro controls it is easy to pick up and tweak the right bass, the screaming lead, the swirling pad and add the seasoning to rock-solid electronic music tracks.

The Micro Weave library is available to purchase for 4.80 EUR. Detunized subscribers pay 3.90 EUR.

Wolfgang Palm has released Plex 2, an updated version of the software software previously available from Steinberg.

I had done some extensions on Plex, just for myself during the last years. Doing that, I found the sounds Plex produces interesting again. So I decided to do a new version, and offer it for free.

Waldorf announces PPG Wave 3.V, virtual synthesizer

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Nov 04, 2010 - comment 0 comments

Waldorf has announced the PPG Wave 3.V, the reincarnation of the legendary PPG Wave synthesizer, which is arguably the most coveted high-end synthesizer of the 1980s and developed by Wolfgang Palm.

Waldorf PPG Wave 3.V

The combination of digital waveshapes and analog filters of the PPG was responsible for an unparalleled fat and thrust boosting character. This has been very accurately recreated in PPG 3.v up to the smallest resolution of detail. With PPG 3.V, it is actually possible to switch between several version of the original. Besides PPG Wave 2.2 and PPG Wave 2.3, PPG Wave 2.V and their subtle differences in aliasing and other sources of harshness are adjustable.

Waldorf PPG Wave 3.V is capable of delivering up to 256 voices of polyphony, depending on the host computer. Each voice offers two Wavetable oscillators with optional sample playback with either 8, 12, or 32 bits of resolution. Samples can easily be loaded by Drag & Drop. An 8 part multimode allows multisamples to be used with the same charme and ease of use that the original offered.

Sound is further shaped by a selectable 12 or 24 dB lowpass filter, which is an authentic recreation of the classic PPG Wave 2.2/2.3 Filter, followed by an optional overdrive for extra fuzz. Besides the LFO, three envelope generators serve as modulation sources, either for the original rude or the contemporary smooth modulation.

Waldorf PPG 3The up to eight parts can be arranged in poly, dual, quad and mono unison modes, with separate semitone adjustments for automatic chords or melodies. Thanks to the multimode with eight stereo outputs, the instrument is well suited for both studio environment or live on stage.

The Arpeggiator offers up and down modes, besides this an alternate mode and with “cascade mode” a true PPG specialty. For further refinement, several effects are available simultaneously, among these a 4-band equalizer, several overdrive modes, a phaser with up to 12 stages and a chorus with up to six taps. Flanger, stereo delay and reverb are also available.

The original PPG featured a unique user-interface, the “Analog Control Panel” offered direct access to many parameters, while digital menus were edited with somewhat cryptic acronyms that you had to look up in the manual in your lap.

PPG 3.v features the very same concept, with the slight enhancement of comprehensible parameter names and values. Almost all parameters can be subjected to host automation and convenient MIDI regulation by assigned control numbers. This makes it very easy to integrate PPG Wave 3.V into any existing production environment.

Waldorf PPG 3.V will be available middle of November for a MSRP of 169 EUR.
