Waldorf WDF-PPG-3 overview

  • 1Description

The Waldorf PPG Wave 3.V Wave Synthesizer Plug-In is based on the legendary PPG Wave Synthesizer from the 1980's. Originally designed by Wolfgang Palm, the synth influenced a generation of musicians and producers. Besides owning an actual PPG, the next best thing is Waldorf's PPG Wave 3.V plug-in. It's compatible with either Mac or PC and it works easily for every VST or AU Host. Offering even more than the original, it lets you switch between several versions of the classic synthesizer, including the PPG Wave 2.2, PPG Wave 2.3 and PPG Wave 2.V.

The plug-in supports up to 256 voices of polyphony and each voice affords two Wavetable oscillators for developing sounds. Plus, you can playback with 8, 12 or 32-bit resolution. There's a low pass filter, four-band EQ, overdrive, LFO and three envelope generators. You can control 8 voices with separate semitone adjustments. And, the Multimode offers 8 stereo outputs for use in the studio or when using the plug-in live. As an added bonus, the 3.V plug-in features the exact same user-interface as the original PPG - complete with the "Analog Control Panel" design and updated MIDI regulation as well.

    Waldorf WDF-PPG-3 reviews

    PPG Wave 3.V Wave Synthesizer Plug-In is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent VSTi! I use PPG in a lot of my electronic music productions. The Tangerine Dream'ish quality and arp presets alone are worth it. But the overall functionality and sound are really excellent! Well done Waldorf! I can't find anything wrong with the synth.
