PPG 360 Wavecomputer

   0 reviews  -  1526 views

    The PPG 360 Wavecomputer was the first instrument produced featuring wavetable synthesis by Wolfgang Palm. The unit was offered in two versions a 4 and an 8 voice configuration. It featured 30 8 bit wavetables, 100 presets with 30 ROM programs.

    The instrument did not offer any filtering but had sliders and buttons to edit/manipulate the sound. An alphanumerical display was onboard for editing. The result being a gritty and grainy digital sound. 40 units were said to be manufactured.
