Groove Synthesis took the classic PPG Wave synthesizer as inspiration while developing this new synthesizer. During a 5 minute-long YouTube video you’ll catch a glimpse of its appearance and performance. Its blue interface is similar to the PPG Wave synth but holds on to many additional features. It is stacked with 3 oscillators where you can choose between a classic PPG-era wavetable, a modern wavetable, or an analog wave shape per oscillator. Explore the 4-part multi-tribal performance: ‘having four independent 6-voice synthesizers at your fingertips.’ A range of analog filters are equipped, as well as up 24-voice polyphony. Have the freedom to create up to 64 custom wavetables with the 3rd Wave’s WaveMaker Tool and connect any audio source to the synthesizer and start generating a wavetable straight away. For all of our sound designers, Groove Synthesis implemented a section of many features to sculpt your sound into anything imaginable. A full matrix including 16 modulation slots, sequencer, dual effects, 4 LFOs with delay & 4 envelopes, and a 6-stage wave envelope are available. This linear FM-based synthesizer holds on to a promising perspective and we’re curious about the full exhibition of this piece of gear during the upcoming NAMM 2022 show
