PPG WaveMapper 2 for Mac OS X and Windows Announced
“Brings the fun of sound design to a whole new generation of producers.”
October 27th 2014 - For Immediate Release
Wolfgang Palm is pleased to announce the PPG WaveMapper 2 for Mac OS X and Windows. The PPG WaveMapper first appeared as an iOS App and received widespread acclaim from public and press alike.
Music Radar said of the iOS version of WaveMapper “Wolfgang Palm’s second iOS synth is just as impressive as his first. Again, PPG WaveMapper is one of the most complex and impressive sounding instruments on the App Store.”
Francis Preve said of the iOS version of WaveMapper in Keyboard Magazine “So, if the depth and complexity of WaveGenerator was a tad too intimidating for users, WaveMapper has that problem solved with real innovation and an interface that brings the fun of sound design to a whole new generation of producers.”
PPG WaveMapper 2 is a greatly expanded version, with many new features, including the WaveMap and new resource merging possibilities.
PPG WaveMapper 2 comes with a very flexible synth engine, capable of playing material from classic wavetables as well as samples and a new type which we call "Time corrected sample" (TCS). This type still has the advantage of wavetables, which is totally random access of the material, but preserving the authentic sound of the original sample.
PPG WaveMapper 2 has three oscillators have independent control of the sound resources and access of the material. Each oscillator has its own WaveMap with up to 16 zones, filled with any combination of the resources. The control of the zones can be done by the keyboard, which we call Multi-tabling, or by a path that determines how the engine plays back the material.
The synthesizer is controlled by over 200 parameters, which can be directly programmed on the two editor pages. In addition to that there is the SoundMap that acts as a module manipulation tool, moving the 8 icons to different fields on the Map changes sounds. These fields are loaded with programs that then define the results of the morphing. Thus the user can setup their own "themes" of sounds they wish to generate with a setup. The morphing can be done rapidly or in an evolving morph from one sound into another.
The built in Analyzer lets you convert your own samples into resources the synth can use in its oscillators. (fig Analyser)
WaveMapper 2 comes already with around 300 resources and a huge number of presets made by our sound design team from around the world.
The browser page allows you to list and sort your sounds. besides that you can exchange single presets with another bank of sounds.
