Nord Wave 2

Virtual Analog, Samples, Wavetable and FM Synthesizer

$2699.00

48 voices, stereo or mono I am not sure yet. I think it is full digital.
There is no specific information at this time on the wavetable configurations that I know of. Nord so far has made the meaningless statement “A large number of advanced wavetables covering a wide range of tonal characteristics”. The ambiguity makes it sound like it would be the worst wavetable oscillator on the market. If I find more details, I’ll update this post.

Thanks!
