PPG Phonem Voice Synthesizer For iPad

PPG Phonem lets the user create expressive vocal synthesis beyond anything ever heard before. With its advanced routing system every aspect of the voice can be controlled and modulated in any conceivable way. Anything from a quiet whisper to a scream. Use the intuitive text to speech tool to make Phonem say whatever you want.

Although the PPG Phonem was originally designed to do just vocal synthesis, it turned out that the system was also capable of producing a wide range of universal synthsizer sounds. So we extended the parameter ranges and made everything accessible to the user, to take advantage of this fact.

The human voice is a very complex system, which can produce a wide range of sounds. It is however restricted by natural physical dimensions. Phonem does not impose limits, letting you create all the filter configurations and sweeps you could only ever have dreamed of.

MiniMapper Synthesizer For iPhone and iPod
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

MiniMapper iPhone iPod Synthesizer

PPG MiniMapper is an easy to use performance synthesizer with a wide range of sounds for iOS devices including iPhone and iPod Touch*.

PPG MiniMapper features the same audio engine that powers the highly popular PPG WaveMapper synth, but with limited editing, aimed as the ideal partner to the PPG WaveMapper. Sounds created in the WaveMapper can be imported into the PPG MiniMapper for the ultimate in handheld performance.

PPG MiniMapper comes with 10 pages:

Sound Map – Manual Mode
Sound Map – Accelerator Mode
Sound Map – Magic Mode
Arptor – Start/Stop/Rec, Range, Up/Down/Random
Audio Recorder / Keyboard Editor
Modifiers Page – two X/Y controller with selectable routing
System Setup – Number of Voices, Sample Rate, other constants
MIDI Setup – In / Out and controller
Easy data exchange between PPG MiniMapper and PPG WaveMapper
Preset Browser –
Bank Manager – copy presets between banks

PPG MiniMapper is the third next-generation iOS based synth from Wolfgang Palm, who has released the PPG WaveGenerator and PPG WaveMapper to critical acclaim from both press and public.

PPG MiniMapper offers iPhone and iPod Touch users a new way to explore and perform in the studio, on stage or simply on the go. PPG MiniMapper allows the user the opportunity to use limitless sounds from this unique and powerful new technology.

About WaveMapping

Wavemapping uses visual cues to enable sound design. This may not sound too revolutionary, however it is a completely different way of programming sounds: you do not start with a lot of detailed setting, but with a combined set of parameters which you can select with the touch and swipe of a finger. And the combination of those parameters belonging to a Module make sense of course, it gives the user (being experienced or not) a very fast way for creating unique sounds.

MiniMapper is available for $3.99

Wavemapper For iPad Wolfgang Palm

PPG WaveMapper is the second next-generation iOS based synth from Wolfgang Palm, who in 2012 released the PPG WaveGenerator to critical acclaim from both press and public.

In final development the PPG WaveMapper offers iPad users a second synthesiser to compliment the already loved PPG WaveGenerator from Wolfgang Palm. PPG WaveMapper allows the user the opportunity to create limitless sounds from this unique and powerful new technology.

PPG WaveMapper features the Sound Map, which maps the various sounds in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper features a new synthesis system which maps the waveforms of a sound into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis so unique.

The Mapping window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters of that module will take on the settings of those parameters in the underlying program on the Mapping window.

People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping technology as a starting point to create complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.

Power users can delve deep into the back end of any sound using a full set of professional features;

▪New Sound map concept – create new sounds playful and experimental
▪3 types of synthesis – the optimal type for kind of each sounds
▪Classic wavetables – for the typical PPG sounds
▪Time compressed samples – more authentic sounds, allowing analysis of user samples
▪Pure samples – classic sample playback Analyzer – convert your own samples into the new format or into wavetables
▪3 oscillators capable for totally independent sound sources
▪90 sound resources – a huge sound palette, from real instruments to abstract wavetables
▪4 parameter editor pages – comfortable and detailed access to all the parameters
▪3 Noise generators, for audio and modulations
▪Ringmodulator
▪Classic 24 dB Lowpass Filter, combined with an overdrive simulation.
▪Dual amplifier, for versatile control of 2 audio signals as well as panning.
▪13 Envelopes, for independent control of pitch, waveform, filter and noise
▪gain and panning
▪4 LFOs – with 5 waveforms
▪Delay/Reverb effect
▪Arpeggiator
▪Schematic touch keyboard – Build your own keyboard, with the keys you prefer for your music.
▪Powerful sound browser – sorting by category, bank management
▪Virtual and Hard-MIDI in/out – sending/receiving keys and controllers.
▪Audiobus support.
▪10 min audio recording and Audio copy.

Wolfgang Palm WaveMapper Synthesizer

Wolfgang Palm WaveMapper Synthesizer

Can’t wait to sneak a peak at this cool new synthesizer by Wolfgang Palm at the Winter Namm show next week.

About WaveMapping:
Wavemapping uses visual cues to enable sound design. This may not sound too revolutionary, however it is a completely different way of programming sounds: you do not start with a lot of detailed setting, but with a combined set of parameters which you can select with the touch and swipe of a finger. And the combination of those parameters belonging to a Module make sense of course, it gives the user (being experienced or not) a very fast way for creating unique sounds.

New Analysis/synthesis system:
WaveMapper uses a new the synthesis system, which can be seen as a bridge between wavetables and samples. In wavetable systems you have great flexibility in controlling the sound, but sound material is limited to harmonic, noise-free waveforms. On the other hand there are samplers, which have very high sound quality, but very limited editing features. In WaveMapper there is a new type, which we call “time corrected sample” (TCS). This can reproduce a much wider palette of sounds then classic wavetables, but still allows for a total control of the access via an envelope or LFOs.

“The Mapping window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters of that module will take on the settings of those parameters in the underlying program on the Mapping window.

People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping technology as a starting point to create complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.”

I’ll tell you as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime have a listen to some audio from this amazing synth.
