Steinberg release cult synth plug-in

PPG for Mac and PC in the shops      06/06/00

Buying Choices
Steinberg has just announced the availability of the PPG Wave 2v - a virtual reincarnation of the bulky cult (but ultimately doomed) synthesizer which dates back to the early 80s and was heavily patronised by Tangerine Dream.Now, the PPG Wave is available as a VST instrument for Mac and Windows users. The Wave 2 series was the first digital wavetable synth with analogue filters. It had the ability to sweep through 64 waveforms - what PPG termed a ‘wavetable’ - whereas most synths of the day were confined to the triangles, sawtooths and square flavours of the period. Waldorf has revived the PPG sound and integrated it with everything that 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. Polyphony depends solely on the CPU power of the host computer. (Well - Steinberg claims, with enough power, that at least eight eight-part virtual synths can be opened up. And that’s more than enough for any electronica revivalist.)
