The 3rd Wave is a powerhouse wavetable synth with an epic, modern sound. It boasts 24-voice polyphony and 4-part multi-timbral performance capability that’s like having four independent synthesizers at your fingertips.


  • 64 total user wavetable positions with 48 wavetables that contain 64 waveforms per table (32 legacy PPG waves with room for another 16 of this type)
  • 32 original 8 bit wavetables from the PPG 2 series instruments with room for 16 more user created 8 bit wavetables
  • 7 high-resolution modeled analog waveforms (sine, saw, triangle, supersaw, pulse, white noise, pink noise)
  • VCO sync
  • Linear FM
  • 6-stage wave envelope per oscillator with variable time and position that can be looped
  • Upper wavetable mode as with the original PPG 2 series
  • Unison mode and chord mode with variable voice count
  • Dave Rossum designed, classic, 2140 low-pass resonant filter
  • 24 db per octave slope
  • Continuously variable between low-pass, notch, and high-pass, operation with optional band-pass mode
  • 4 ADSR+ Delay Envelopes
  • Filter, Amplifier, plus 2 additional envelopes switchable between exponential and vintage PPG-style response
