Can You Hear The Difference Between The 3rd Wave Advanced Wavetable Synthesizer & A Classic PPG Wave 2.3?

Groove Synthesis shared this series of videos, comparing the sound of the 3rd Wave Advanced Wavetable Synthesizer and a classic PPG Wave 2.3.

The 3rd Wave is a 24-voice, 4-part multi-timbral wavetable synth. It’s inspired by the PPG Wave, but is designed to be a much more capable synthesizer.

“The 3rd Wave isn’t designed to be an exact replica of the PPG,” the developers note. “It’s our idea of where the original concept might have gone, had it continued to evolve. And while we feel that it captures the essence of the original and can sound quite close, it is its own synth with its own character.”
