At a Glance
Groove Synthesis says that 3rd Wave is like having four independent 6-voice synths to play with wavetables analogue filters, 24 voices of polyphony and 4-part multitimbrality.
Each voice has three oscillators, each of which can host a PPG-era wavetable, a current hi-res wavetable, or an analogue waveshape. You may also use the WaveMaker tool to create up to 64 wavetables of your own by connecting an audio source to the input and generating a wavetable at the push of a button.
Linear FM, a 6-stage wave envelope per oscillator, four envelopes and four LFOs with delay, dual effects per part, a pattern/song based sequencer per part, and a 16-slot mod matrix are some of the other features.
