PPG WAVE 2 digital-analog hybrid synthesizer vs Darth Digital

November 17, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here comes the first PPG WAVE on the market, the PPG Wave 2.

A fantastic digital-analog hybrid using wavetable synthesis for the OSC section and analog filters, envelopes and amps.

Only 8-OSCs instead of 16 in the 2.2 and 2.3. 8bit in the Wave 2 and 2.2, 12bit in the 2.3. 8-track sequencer onboard along with a arpegator. CEM 3320 VCFs for the 2 against SSM 2044 in the later ones.

This unit however has 2 issues:
– 2 faulty VCA’s (I guess)
– a horrible keyboard nearly unplayable

This unit has no retrofit, so I’m using an arpeggio and mostly long release times to hide the distorted VCAs or try to use it as an effect.

So no deep exploring here – but this lovely synthesizer has something hypnotic and sounds rarely especially digital, more than that it’s warm and organic.

Be the waveforce with you…

The German made PPG (Palm Products GmbH) Wave 2 series of synthesizers are incredibly great sounding analog/digital hybrid vintage synths. They use digital samples of wavetables and feature analog VCA envelope and VCF (filter) sections for a classic and warm sound. The Wave 2.2 has oscillators that can generate over 2,000 different single-cycle 8-bit digital waveforms! Covered by knobs, the Wave still looks analog and this comprises the “Analog Control Panel”. More complex and new-wave editing of the wavetables and samples is covered by the “Digital Control Panel” where there are several key-pad buttons and an LCD screen. Another familiar treat to analog junkies is the inclusion of an 8-track sequencer which features automation of pitch, loudness, filter cutoff, waveforms and more. A cool feature – its onboard sequencer will also record any filtering and wave changes, in real-time!


The more commonly encountered Wave 2.3 (pictured) followed the 2.2 and had enhanced sample-playback capabilities. The sampler was pretty full-featured for its time and included upgraded 12-bit digital waveforms, Fourier analysis and linear playback of samples. The 2.3 model also featured 8-parts multitimbrality and MIDI implementation. The PPG Waves are know to create excellent pads, brass and bass sounds.
