PPG wave 2.2 Synthesizer from the year 1982
8 minutes across the wavetables with the Wave.
A single sound program that I continuously change with the help of the wave envelope, wavetable, wave amount, upper wave, sub wave, aftertouch etc. So there are always new timbres.

Recorded directly in stereo without any external effects, EQ or anything else.
The pure sound. And a lot of digital dirt.

The PPG Wave 2.2 is the direct successor of the Wave 2 but with 2 oscillators. Only 500 Wave 2.2 were manufactured.
The sound character is different to the later Waldorf Microwave synths and different to the Wave 2.3.

- 8 Voices
- 2 to 16 Oscillators per voice
- 30 Wavetables with 64 waves per wavetable
- analog 24 dB/oct lowpass SSM 2044 VCF
- Curtis CEM 3360 VCAs
- micro processor (6809)
- 8Bit DACs

Used by: Trevor Horn (Propaganda, Art Of Noise, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones), Ultravox, Depeche Mode, Robert Palmer, Talk Talk, Tears For Fears, Thomas Dolby, The Fixx, Thompson Twins, Tangerine Dream, Gary Numan and much more."
