PPG WaveMapper Announced

Wolfgang Palm has announced his second iOS app! Following swiftly behind last year's hit PPG WaveGenerator, comes PPG WaveMapper. This app promises to offer an entirely new, and user-friendly way of playing with WaveTables.

PPG WaveMapper features the Sound Map, which maps the various sounds in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper features a new synthesis system which maps the waveforms of a sound into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis so unique.

The Mapping window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters of that module will take on the settings of those parameters in the underlying program on the Mapping window.

People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping technology as a starting point to create complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.

That sounds pretty damn fun, and functional! It is expected to be released next month, for $20.

You can read the full details and see a couple more screenshots on Wolfgang's site: WolfgangPalm.com

Here is a demo of the new app, from Boele Gerkes.
