Nord Wave Synthesizer

via this auction
"49 key, Nord Wave Synth. Loaded with V 2.02 software.

By having two oscillators capable of producing a vast array of sounds from classic analog waveforms (with sync), FM synthesis, wavetables, sampled waves (single cycle waveforms with attack) as well as noise and other miscellaneous waveforms, the Nord Wave has an unprecedented pallet of sounds for you to use as foundation.

Need a rich and full string quartet? No problem, just call up a string sample. Want a highly resonant screaming lead? Sure; virtual analog is there, but why not combine them, not just mix them together? With the Wave, you can create an analog lead 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 an analog square. By controlling the amount of modulation the effect can range from very subtle to extremely aggressive, so that the original waveforms are no longer recognizable.

Within moments you will experience sounds never heard before, sounds that will function as a great source of inspiration and lift the joy of playing and sound design to new levels.

The sound of a resonant filter with a 24 dB slope applied to a sampled sound brings it so much to life that some times this is all you need, but there are many other parameters available to affect your samples. All elements of an analog synthesizer can be incorporated: amplifier and modulation envelopes, LFOs, filters, and effects.

Some convenient sample modifications are also available. By using alternative start points, you can skip the attack portion of the sample and only use the body of the sound for e.g. modulation purposes."
