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.
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.
PPG MiniMapper is a powerful new synth for professional iOS musicians and is the ideal partner app for those who already own either PPG WaveGenerator or PPG WaveMapper.
