Groove Synthesis 3RD WAVE In-Depth Review


Host Ziv Eliraz, in his latest loopop video, takes an in-depth look at the Groove Synthesis 3rd Wave, a keyboard synthesizer that is like a modern take on the classic PPG Wave.


3rd Wave is a 24-voice, 4-part multi-timbral wavetable synth, with 3 oscillators per voice, analog low-pass filters, a state-variable filter, 6-stage wave envelopes per oscillator, and an industry-first Wavemaker tool that allows users to create custom wavetables in a single step, through proprietary sample-to-wave technology.
