Wolfgang Palm explores the PPG Wavegenerator!

Just days before release, Wolfgang has released a video exploring his new baby! This is excellent, getting right into the details.

I love hearing developers talk about their creations!


MATRIXSYNTH found a new video from Jay de Miceli (NutekK Labs) showing off some of the factory sounds he's produced for PPG.

Video Details:

When Wolfgang Palm called on me to be a part of his newest project I cleared my calendar without hesitation. Soon he introduced me to his vision, the next generation synth -The PPG WaveGenerator.

This next generation PPG has the original PPG wave models but it also allows you, to create your own wavetables. Using my own wavetable, 'supertable' I created the program 'Invader ZIMmer'. There are no effects and no sequencer used here, this is a rich textured cinematic arpeggiated program - right out of the factory bank. And it was recorded straight from the ipad headphone jack.

Beatmaking with iMaschine and Ableton Live

Danny Lewis from Point Blank Online has posted a tutorial on beatmaking with iMaschine and importing the results into Ableton Live.

Video details:

In the next 3 episodes in our 'Making Music with Apps' series Danny J Lewis shows you how you can put together professional sounding tracks on the move. In this tutorial he starts off with the beatmaking using Native Instrument's iMaschine.

This approach is all about making the most of the unique qualities of each app and recording the results into Ableton as audio clips. The advantage is that you are committing the sound that you have made to audio so there is no temptation to endlessly fiddle with the synth parameters or the intricacies of the midi patterns and you can get on with the task of arranging the parts to make that banging tune that your 8 bar loop had promised!

Buy iMaschine on iTunes: $4.99 (iPhone)
