PPG Wave 2
In 1981, Wolfgang Palm, the company's founder PPG (Palm Products Germany), sells his first synthesizer wavetable: Wave 2.

This is the fifth tone generator of the brand,
following the 1020 Sonic Carrier 1003, Computer Wave 340 and 360A.

Polyphonic eight channels, this model works in eight bits.
with sequencer, VCF 24dB / octave low-pass, pitch and LFO ...


Is the general configuration is simple?
yes, but it's better if it was a record. (in French)

Publishing of sound effects or is it easy?

Is the manual clear and sufficient? ...dropoff Window
the manual is clear but mostly in German.


The sounds they agree your style of music?
yes, very new-wave ... but this keyboard is a wonder to electro!

the sound is realistic?
No! but unique. very brassy.

Expression is it good? (Response to velocity, aftertouch)?
yes very good ... it's not the same keyboard as 2.2 or 2.3 or the keys are "cheep" the keyboard 2 is very good!


What thing do you like most and least?
least: the sequencer can complicated.
most all the rest ...

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I have a lot of synth that time.

How would you rate the quality / price?
given the number of tube in which he was involved I think we can say EXCELLENT!
and just for the record, there are only 160 in the world.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Yes! but I would put less time to decide to buy it.
