The Lost PPG Tracks (Music from the PPG System) by Cornel Hecht

"I found an old PPG Waveterm floppy disk in my studio.
Many years ago I saved some ideas and sounds on it.
Now I finalized these ideas: "The Lost PPG Tracks".
A musical reminiscence of the wild 80s with
pulsating synthesizer sequences and bizarre sounds
directly from the time machine.
Welcome to the 80s!"

Danger & Dreams by Cornel Hecht

Roland Jupiter 6 sequences & PPG Wave 2.2 and 2.3 pads.

"The story about Danger & Dreams goes back to a call from a film producer who wanted something "Stranger Things"-esque for his film, which I then produced quite quickly.

Those who know Stranger Things (series on Netflix) will know that the music sounds very electronic and reminds of Tangerine Dream. Musically it is something like "Berlin School", some TD and of course also some Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein aka Survive!

Look forward to an exciting web of pulsating sequences and synthesizer sounds, with nice old and well-known sounds appearing here and there, which you have certainly heard in this way before in the 80s.

I produced it and used many old vintage synthesizers, like the PPG Wave 2.2 and 2.3, which both fire out some fat pad sounds. Or the Roland Jupiter 6, which contributes sequences.

The film is about aliens "terraforming" the overheated planet Earth so that people can live together in peace again. Anyone who sees parallels to the Syrian war and the exploitation of resources, isn't completely off!

Let's go! Danger & Dreams! The invasion will start now!"

"This has always been my dream. A system which can reproduce all kinds of sounds and transform them into a universal set of parameters. Thus all these sounds are completely morphable." - Wolfgang Palm

"At the end of the 70s Wolfgang Palm developed wavetable synthesis. This was very successful and used by many synthesizer companies in the 80s and 90s. But this technology has its limitations. The main reason is that all sounds are harmonic. In nature this does not happen very often. Many sounds like a piano string have small offsets from the harmonic frequencies. This is even stronger in sounds like bells or percussion.

Infinite PRO overcomes this limitation.

The frequencies of the overtones created by Infinite PRO can be totally freely defined. So the sounds it produces are totally free in the frequencies of their overtones. This means that each partial wave can have an arbitrary frequency.

Moreover it is possible to move these overtones independently during the duration of a note.

Another important part of most natural sounds is noise. Be it a flute or when a drumstick hits the drumhead - and this all can be reproduced in Infinite PRO.

Furthermore the noise source can be used to modulate the tonal part which results in very powerful effects.
Besides these new digital features, we still have the typical 24db Lowpass filter, 2 VCA with stereo out and effects. All this is controlled by 10 envelopes, 4 LFOs and a modulation matrix.

Maybe the greatest innovation in Infinite PRO is the Morpher. It is so easy to create new timbres and real-time effects by morphing the gains and frequencies of sounds with the X/Y controller. To get an impression of the morphing possibilities watch this short video.

Infinite PRO comes with more that 300 tonal resources, which can be loaded into the 5 fields inside the Morpher. But it does not stop there. You can edit these in detail on two extra pages and even analyse your own sounds in a sophisticated analyzer.

On the Sine Parameter panel, you edit the sine tracks with a set of parameters for each track. A track is the time sequence of one sine component over the full length of the sound. A 3D display gives a good impression of the whole resource.

Example of a 3D view showing a vocal resource which features strong pitch moves.

On the Sine Structure panel, you edit the fine structure of a track in a bar graph. A FREQ mode lets you do this for the frequency.

The Main Parameter page edits the program parameters like Oscillator Pitch, the VCF (a 24dB lowpass filter), gain envelopes and LFOs. PPG Infinite PRO is equipped with 10 envelopes. Some are fixed to a certain function, others can be freely connected with the matrix.

A sophisticated analyzer offers six modes to capture all kinds of sounds in the best possible way.

* The 3D display does not run on 32bit Mac hosts and not on all Windows PCs. But there is also a 2D mode which features all the functionality of the 3D mode and even more. If you think the 3D is very important for you, please wait for the DEMO version, and test it there before buying."

New Synth Coming from PPG

Something new is developing at PPG Published on Jul 29, 2017 WPalmWT

"A short teaser of my new synth
Thanks to Jean-Luc Nest for the beautiful sounds"

PPG of course is Wolfgang Palm, maker of the original line of PPG hardware synths, and the more recent iOS and software synthesizers based on the classic PPG wavetable synthesis and more. My guess is this will be a new software or iOS synthesizer, but you never know of course...

"A story about noise and sound
Thanks to #nachtsmeer# for the lyrics"


In the beginning there was noise

Pink noise

Structured noise

In time, from noise came individual sine waves.

Some of these sine waves were louder, others quite.

Some had low frequencies others frequencies were high.

The sine waves grouped together in various amplitudes and frequencies.

Together they created fundamentals, then formed partials, overtones and harmonics.

and in conclusion we journey on to the

PPG Phonem Coming to iPad

Published on Aug 4, 2016 WPalmWT

"Cornel Hecht featuring the Phonem vocal synthesizer.
All sounds from Phonem (except drums)."

"After the huge success of the PPG Phonem VST/AU plugin, we optimized the sound-engine to make it run pretty well on the iPad. It has also been adapted to make best use of multi-touch and comes with IAA and AU-extension.
PPG Phonem lets the user create expressive vocal synthesis beyond anything ever heard before. With its advanced routing system every aspect of the voice can be controlled and modulated in any conceivable way. Anything from a quiet whisper to a scream. Use the intuitive text to speech tool to make Phonem say whatever you want.

Although the PPG Phonem was originally designed to do just vocal synthesis, it turned out that the system was also capable of producing a wide range of universal synthsizer sounds. So we extended the parameter ranges and made everything accessible to the user, to take advantage of this fact.

'The human voice is a very complex system, which can produce a wide range of sounds. It is however restricted by natural physical dimensions. Phonem does not impose limits, letting you create all the filter configurations and sweeps you could only ever have dreamed of.'
Wolfgang Palm

The heart of the system is a multi resonator filter with 12 individual resonators which can produce vocal sounds as well as all kinds of filter sweeps and effects. This is combined with a very flexible excitation source which can work as a simulation for the human vocal source (the glottis) but also use wavetables and time-corrected-samples (TCS) to drive the filter.

The user can dig into every detail of a synthesized utterance, right down to the individual phonemes. Each phoneme can be adjusted to meet the voice of an individual character or a dialect. Additional there is a pitch-track and a control-track which makes the voice sing with phrasing and expression. A little inspiration and imagination allows the user to create whatever they wish.

PPG Phonem comes with a modulation matrix - allowing 19 sources to control 40 parameters. In this way the vocals or sound effects can be modified rhythmically using LFOs, envelopes or two X/Y control pads. All these modifications can of cause be recorded into the controlling DAW.

For speech or vocal synthesis a versatile excitation generator is provided. But we did not leave it at that and added a wavetable and TCS system, which adds a new dimension to the sound palette. Wavetables can be imported from WaveGenerator or created and edited, TCS can be imported and modified from WaveMapper 2.

Phonem comes with more than 500 presets made by our sounddesigner team. The browser page allows you to list and sort your sounds. Besides that you can copy presets to another list.

Large Phoneme inventory - 46 english/american plus 5 german plus 4 french phonemes
