DreamBlaster S2 World Premiere - Smallest and cheapest Wavetable Module
Published on Mar 28, 2017 PhilsComputerLab
"In this video we are taking a look at the new DreamBlaster S2 General MIDI wavetable module. I talk about the differences between S1 and S2, we look at the size, pricing and availability and then there is over 1 hour of MIDI recordings for you to hear how it sounds like."
I believe this is more ROMpler/PCM synthesis vs. the PPG and Waldorf of wavetable synthesis. Curious how programmable these are. The following are a couple of pics and some general info via Serdashop:
