1982. 5 octave synth. sampling of the waves in 12-bit (16 bits for the 2.3). MIDI in / out / thru optional on 2.2 and on the factory 2.3. 8 note polyphony. 100 user memories. keyboard with after touch. 2 VCO or DCO, 1 vcf 24-bit, 2 LFOs, 2 ADSR. ability to switch into 4 voice polyphony, thereby doubling the vco, vcf ... or even single vco = 8, 8 filters, 16 lfo, 16 adsr. sequencer at the limit of available (except perhaps for tank S. Me, I have a tray -2!) ... inimitable style, all steel, German made, unbreakable. when you open it, it's empty inside, Wolfgang Palm explained that it was done deliberately to put another keyboard on it, and it's true that it works. Originally upgraded version 3.5, there are currently among the ships in V8.3 virtual-music.at much more stable and with better management of the south before fucking for a correct sum.
the basic config is very simple, we choose a wave of bank (1000 + wave in total) on the alphanumeric keyboard, and after that it behaves exactly like an analog, ie: lfo, filter, ADSR in direct or memorable on the fly, ie, intuitive access.
after, if you want to play to assign the lfo modulated on one of 2 envelopes, for example, enter into the mysteries of the synthesizer, ie, in one of eight internal pages accessible via the LCD screen on the doc + knees, but it's not "rocket science", I saw far more esoteric dx7 on dung or other kind of ws korg rack. the manual is the same weight as the synth! .
sounds: everything is possible, very very very very rough or gliding. basically, it happens quite easily reproduce the strings of flashing, as well as the hearts of the mellotron in WAKEMAN or schulze, through the Farfisa combo rick wright (pink floyd). bike very impressive at this level. I might even give you "Depeche Mode", "human league" or "Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark" who used abundantly at the time (I almost forgot "heldon" and "Richard Pinhas").
I have mine since 1983, a ruin at the time: 54000 FF = 8232.25 euros + the midification afterthought here, I prefer to forget the price of 3 sockets din! which, moreover, no longer serve me now, I used my fingers, really best
it's a weird synth, nothing to do with anything that could be produced before or after. series "wave" waldorf home (same box) are not the same sound, much more flat and dull. ppg on a wave, it literally goes through the galaxy, with some effects, 3D is the insured. bike manufactured in 2000 ex. therefore rare. the wave 2.3 is already more "cold", requires 16-bit ... and other amateur dx casio, go your way. this thing is easily tamed, provided that the nourisse well
