Nord Wave Synthesiser
The Nord Wave gives you traditional analog sounds that interact and coexist with pretty much anything you want; by combining analog, FM-synthesis, wavetable and sampled waveforms - you can use literally any standard wave file - it is a standard sample player and an analog synthesizer - and so much more in between!
The introduction of sample players in the mid eighties created a gap in the world of synthesizers - a gap that twenty years later only has grown further; the amount of voices and memory sizes are more important than the sound itself - as if the more ‘dead’ samples you can play at one time would bring your sound more to life. The Nord Wave closes that gap, and brings digital samples to life by integrating them in an virtual analog environment. Does the best of two worlds sound too pretentious for you? Wait until you have heard the wave.
What It Is All About
By having two oscillators capable of producing a vast array of sounds from classic analog waveforms (with sync), via FM-synthesis, wavetables, sampled waves (single cycle waveforms with attack) as well as noise and other miscellaneous waveforms to - yes - playback of sampled waveforms, the nord wave has an unprecedented pallet of sounds for you to use as foundation.
You need a rich and full string quartet? No problem - just bring up the samples. A highly resonant screaming lead? Sure - virtual analog is there, but why not combine them - not just mix them together - but create an analog sound with the harmonic content of the sampled string quartet!
With oscillator modulation you can transfer the character of one sound to the other - for instance a sampled string to a analog square - and by controlling the amount of modulation the effect can range from very subtle to heavily aggressive were the original sound is no longer recognized.
Within moments you will experience sounds never heard before; sounds that will function as a great source of inspiration and lift your playing and sound design to new levels.
