Hi Sunao,my name's Diego i'm italian, my PPG is no midi,
i just want to ask you if i can control it in monophonic way by using my analog sequencer korg sq10 that is -/+5 volts ?

PPG Wave 2.3 sn#01123
I obviously have a Wave 2.3. Unfortunately, I cannot get sound.
At first it would make sound that became an annoyance when the waves sub and the waves osc were turned all of the way up,
so I new I had to operate. Cleaned insides entirely, resoldered SCR in the back, and replaced the keyboard connector cable.
It was still doing the same thing. The original owner had a strange battery attachment for a replacement (not a very clean job).
I replaced his "harness" with a mounted AAA battery holder so the mess would be cleaned up.
Unfortunately, I don't think his AAA battery plan was going to work well. I figure if I had the proper battery,
it should give sound again (I don't think that the AAAs are strong enough). Of course now, there is no sound.
I need to find a new battery, and to find out why it was coming to a high whiney screech of a noise when the waves osc and the waves sub were cranked.
If anyone could help me to bring this one back to life, I'll greatly appreciate it.
Thanks J (sorry for making you read such a long and boring story)

Tom Moravansky
Wave 2, Wave 2.2, Wave 2.3, Waveterm B.
I am looking for a Sonic Carrier 1003 and a Wavecomputer 360.
Also, I am a tech and I can replace your PPG NiCad battery
with a new Lithium battery that does not need charging.
This way, your PPG will always keep the patches.

PPG WAVE 2.2 (ser. no.0014)
i look for MIDI in my PPG 2.2 have one of the PPG User³«s
a right think where is the world can buy a upgrade to MIDI?
Need advice.
I just took delivery of a PPG Wave 2.3 in nice shape.
BUT it seems to have lost its data.
My question is, should I keep this or return it?
Is this symptomatic of a problem PPG?
How much work is it to keep reloading the programs from cassette, etc.?
I have wanted a Wave for a few years now, but am disappointed that it seems so fragile.

Mi Strom
PPG WAVE 2.3 (ser. no. 01294) & WAVETERM A (ser. no. 0218)

Has anyone experienced/rectified/solved this before?
It just makes filter sweeps un-reliable.

Now I use PPG WAVE 2.3 and 2.3 with Waldorf Micro Wave(2units),Wave Slave and Micro Wave II & XT.
But,I think the best wave table sound is PPG Wave 2.2
(non MIDI).
Because PPG has very great and beautiful sampling noise.It's "REAL" PPG.
I am looking for WAVE TERM B.Please mail me!
