PPG Wave 2.V
The PPG Wave 2.V is a software version of the legendary PPG Wave 2.3 synthesizer, which was released in 1983. PPG Wave 2.V is a VST Instrument – which means it runs within Cubase VST. Its audio outputs appear directly in the VST Channel mixer – where additional effects can be applied. Cubase MIDI tracks are routed into the input of the 2.V – or you can route your MIDI keyboard through Cubase to play it live. The results are close to the original, and even include a simulation of its “aliasing” noise. The original basic sequencer has been omitted – as Cubase is so much more powerful – but the original Arpeggiator is included.
