Arguable. I wouldn't be able to make music with one synth alone, and that probably also holds true for the majority of others. Especially with so many one trick pony devices out there, which can do one thing pretty good, but suck for others. In my experience, there's really very few synths with a sweet spot for about anything really. More so with analog synths. Not so much with soft synths.nichttuntun wrote:You are really pushing LARGO here. Is LARGO capable of something the amazing PPG synth of the inventor himself Wolfgang Palm can't do? Or is it sounding completely different? Cheers.
Yes. It can interpolate between the waveforms, for example. And, apart from having the PPG wavetables, it also has the Q's, and Microwave's wavetables. The architecture is also different, and it has unison onboard. Also, different filters. I don't think it sounds completely different, because i think all the Waldorf/PPG synths share a certain vibe, but, it surely allows for some different flavours, and is overall different enough, that there won't be too much overlapping. As far as i know, the point of the PPG plugins was to closely emulate features and operations, while Largo is something separate.
What is so special about the PPG, Q and Microwave wavetables? They always get brought up in discussions about wavetable synths. You would think modern sound designers are no longer imaginative enough to come up with good wavetables.
And is it just me or does having millions and millions of wavetables not really amount to much.
Well, of course it's nice to have many (quality) wavetables in a wavetable synth. I don't find all of them useful in Largo, but, especially the Q wavetables (Alt1, Alt2), and the Wavetrip ones are very versatile, and offer a lot of flavors, and also fit quite nicely to another. Obviously, they also wanted to offer the wavetables of their classic synths at the same time. Anyway, i think it's great to have a lot of choice, being able to import your own wavetables is even better, of course.
