Earcandy has released the first product in the Authentic Collection Series; the PPG 360 Wavecomputer library for Kontakt 5, which features eccentric, unique and quirky programs from the extremely rare PPG 360 Wavecomputer digital synthesizer serial number 007.
This is a rare synthesizer with a total of only approximately 40 units made in the late seventies.
The library consists of 100 programs.
The 30 factory programs plus 5 programs from the owner were sampled exactly as they are on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer one note at a time.
The final 65 programs were created tweaking these 35 programs via the interface directly in Kontakt 5.
More than 3000 samples were recorded through industry leading equipment at 24-bit/96kHz.
All samples were looped and mapped to capture the feeling of the real unit.
Settings like no velocity sensitivity and hard panning voices have been maintained, but via the CHEATS section you can do some stuff not available on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer.
Full polyphony instead of only 8 voices on the real synth.
Apart from this not much else has been added.
The PPG 360 Wavecomputer library is approved by PPG owner and creator of Wavetable Synthesis – Mr. Wolfgang Palm – this library is meant for those looking for rare and unique PPG sounds. Mr. Palm had this to say: “A very precise and complete library which captures the details and quirks of the original PPG synthesizer. Very good”.
The Earcandy Authentic Collection is a collection of products created to get as close as possible to the real sounds from different sound generating instruments.
The library is available now at €49 directly from earcandymedia.com where you will also find more information, sound examples and historical details on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer including pictures of the actual PPG 360 Wavecomputer.
100 Programs (35 sampled programs, 65 edited via UI).
Full Version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5 required.
Price is 49 euro.
