PPG Wave 2.2 / Waveterm A System (1982)

RetroSound brings us a tutorial for 1982's PPG Wave 2.2. It is fascinating to see the workflow on this beast. Apps have always been a much cheaper alternative to hardware, but this video sure makes me appreciate how much better our workflow is too. Also, look at those 8" diskette drives!

How to video:

The Waveterm is the heart of the legendary PPG system and based on an old german computer called Eltec Eurocom II with Motorola 6809 processor.
