Elby Designs - MonoWave(X) PPG-inspired Analogue synth with Wave-table Oscillators


via this auction

"The MonoWave was the brainchild of UK electronics designer, Paula Maddox who wanted to build a synthesizer the roots of which lay in the PPG. Originally intended as a monophonic bass synthesizer, the MonoWave has uses beyond that.

The MonoWave is a wave-table synthesiser with 256 waves available for each of the two oscillators. Each oscillator also has a sub-oscillator. The filter is a copy of the Moog filter, there are separate envelope generators for the filter and amplifier, and a simple LFO. The panel is very 'retro' and 'traditional' with knobs for every function and a simple display. Internally, the circuitry is all analogue (except for the digital circuitry used in the oscillators).... no wimpy DSP thank you very much - this is a 'real' synth!!"
