Following on from our video coverage of the new Nord Wave
synth in our news report from the Frankfurt Messe we have checked out the Clavia website and found that they have put out some more details about it. They have also made a 2-page leaflet on the Wave, as handed out at the show, available for download in pdf form. They say that many things will happen in development until the time of production later this year, so advise you to not see this as anything other than a conceptual description of the new unit.
Hereâ€™s what Clavia have to say about the Waveâ€™s appearance at Messeâ€¦
â€˜Following a tradition of making virtual analog synthesizers of the highest sounding quality, the Nord Wave represents the next generation of Nord Lead synthesizers. It is a small, light-weighted instrument giving you access to the not only classical analog sounds, but using also fm, wavetable and complete user replaceable samples as an oscillator source. All in a well-known and easy to use analog synthesizer environment with effects like tube-style overdrive thrown in as well.
It is not another sample player, but a fully interactive synthesizer that supports sampled waveforms! The Nord Wave has still long to go in development, but where our competitors would only exibit a mock-up displayed in glsas casing we were mighty proud to have a fully working prototype and being confident enought to allow trade show visitors to go one on one with the unit! The feedback from visitors was great - one is truly amazed by the type of sounds that can be produced by this unit - and left us with a strong feeling of going in the right direction. The Nord Wave is a replacement to the Nord lead 3, and will be available later this year.â€™
