I removed most of the noise and hiss, and added a little sparkle on the top.

Major Thomas - PPG Wave 2.3
This little MP3 file features my PPG Wave 2.3 and an old analog Hammond Autovari-64 drummachine.
No effects, EQ or anything else was used - it is all pure PPG Wave 2.3 and some analog drums :-)

It is mainly just a layer by layer track - no real arrangement but a lot of different sounds coming on and coming off.

Man - no matter what I want that PPG jacket. I know I would never get my always 'expanding' torso into it - but still .. I want it (and the hat).

An old PPG 1002 synthesizer.
Not exactly a wavetable synthesizer, in face an analog synth made by mr. Palm before he started experimenting with digital oscillators.

Pictures from Wolfgang Palm.
The following six pictures were sent to me by no other than the genious himself; mr. Wolfgang Palm. These are the pictures used in the original brochures from the eighties.
I haven't compressed the images in any way - they are just like they were when I received them.
Thank you Wolfgang.

This picture shows a PPG System consisting of a PPG EVU, a PPG Waveterm A (spot the two 8 inch floppy drives), a PPG PRK and a PPG Wave 2.2 (I believe).
