The amazing and classic PPG Wave 2.V synthesizer is now available as a VST Instrument for your PC or Mac VST system! It looks, functions and sounds just like the original Wave 2.3 but with all the power, control and flexibility of a VST environment, such as Cubase VST! The outputs appear directly in the VST mixer, so effects and EQ can be applied like any other audio channel. MIDI tracks are routed directly to the input of the PPG Wave 2.V and all parameters are real-time controllable! Velocity and Aftertouch sensitivity is also available.

The Wave's most interesting feature was its ability to sweep through 64 waveforms in what PPG called a wavetable. Over 2000 waveforms are available within the Wave's 32 internal wavetables for an incredibly broad range of sounds, from animated pads and textures to bass, leads and effects. Polyphony now depends solely on the amount CPU power you have. You can layer up to 8 PPG Wave 2.Vs, each with 8 times multitimbral capability, allowing for almost limitless sounds. A new graphical page offers easy editing of envelopes, generators and the low-pass filter. A must have for any Cubase VST user!
