PPG Wavegenerator Preview Video

Wolfgang continues to taunt us! This teaser is juicy though. Hit the 720p switch on the embed and pause it frame by frame.

Rampant speculation follows:

  • 0:01 - 3D visualization, but underneath it is some zig-zagging path on a grid.
  • 0:02 - We see the grid and a user customizing the path.
  • 0:03 - Audio 1 and Audio 2 labels in the top right; two different audio paths?
  • 0:04 - A pop-out shows the value of a control to the side, so you can see it under your finger.
  • 0:05 - The label "Draw" is above both panels on the left showing the same wave. The bottom is in partials; like additive synths.
  • 0:06 - Holy shit! Is each square on the grid a different wave? This is like Draw Your Own Animoog!
  • 0:07 - A lot of presets, made managable in banks.
  • 0:08 - DUDE! The path/grid screen definitely has a cursor similar to Animoog.
  • 0:09 - Recording and playback pop-up. 
  • 0:10 - Demonic Possession.
  • 0:11 - Envelope G1. We saw an Envelope W1 in the preview screenshot. Labeling like this indicates a lot of envelopes.
  • 0:12 - Making a path on the grid. 

Wow! The inventor of wavetable synthesis is really coming to iPad!

That's way too many freaking waveforms (16^2 = 256)! I thought Animoog is ridiculous (8x16 = 128), but this? Still, it's a nice problem too have. =) I love vector synthesis; I've wanted a Korg WaveStation forever. But, this looks much more fun to program.

The future is moving too fast! What's happening! Surely this will make my ipad1 obsolete. (*looks in couch for loose change*)

According to a post on Facebook a couple of hours ago, it'll be submitted within a few days!

In the words of Philip J Fry, " that's not soon enough!"

Confusing! According to another post, it'll be available in a couple of weeks. In the meantime, there's info about a rather exciting feature:

PPG Wavegenerator Yes - the new PPG Wavegenerator App allows you to take any picture and convert it to a wave.
