is the second next-generation iOS based synth from Wolfgang Palm, who in 2012 released the PPG WaveGenerator to critical acclaim from both press and public.
In final development the PPG WaveMapper
offers iPad users a second synthesiser to compliment the already loved PPG WaveGenerator from Wolfgang Palm. PPG WaveMapper
allows the user the opportunity to create
from this unique and powerful new technology.
features the Sound
Map, which maps the various sounds
in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper
features a new synthesis
system which maps the waveforms of a sound
into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound
characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis
and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis
window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters
of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters
of that module will take on the settings of those parameters
in the underlying program on the Mapping
People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping
technology as a starting point to create
complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound
source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound
onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.
Power users can delve deep into the back end of any sound
using a full set of professional features;
map concept – create
playful and experimental
▪3 types of synthesis
– the optimal type for kind of each sounds
▪Classic wavetables – for the typical PPG sounds
▪Time compressed samples
– more authentic sounds, allowing analysis of user samples
– classic sample playback Analyzer – convert your own samples
into the new format or into wavetables
▪3 oscillators capable for totally independent sound
resources – a huge sound
palette, from real instruments to abstract wavetables
▪4 parameter editor pages – comfortable and detailed access to all the parameters
▪3 Noise generators, for audio
▪Classic 24 dB Lowpass Filter, combined with an overdrive simulation.
▪Dual amplifier, for versatile control of 2 audio
signals as well as panning.
▪13 Envelopes, for independent control of pitch, waveform, filter and noise
▪gain and panning
▪4 LFOs – with 5 waveforms
▪Schematic touch keyboard – Build your own keyboard, with the keys you prefer for your music.
browser – sorting by category, bank management
▪Virtual and Hard-MIDI in/out – sending/receiving keys and controllers.
▪10 min audio
