Starting life as an iPad synth, WaveGenerator takes the original PPG Wave concept and adds to it the ability to modify and create your own waveforms.
It comes with a library of factory waves stored in wavetables, many of which are sourced from the original Wave synths. These are loaded into the easy access Wave Grid on the right, which can house up to 256 waves in its 16x16 matrix. The wavetable is manipulated to generate evolving sounds as the 'playback head' travels through it.
WaveGenerator is an incredibly powerful and - once you understand what it does and how it does it - surprisingly approachable synth. Nonetheless, we were still glad to see over 700 presets in its locker, lovingly designed by a number of producers..
Incredibly creative and sonically superlative, WaveGenerator is a stupendous synth. It does have its idiosyncrasies, certainly - not to mention a reasonably steep learning curve - but what you get back from it makes the effort more than worth it.45 Stars
