# PPG Expansion Voice Unit

PPG @ 24 January 2012

“PPG EVU Expansion Voice Unit module

This is the “brains” of a PPG Wave 2.3: Classic vintage 8 voice wavetable synth; digital oscillators for complex waveforms; warmed up with rich analog filters [8x Curtis SSM 2044 VCF chips], designed by Wolfgang Palm, used by famously by David Bowie, The Fixx, Trevor Horn, Jean Michel Jarre, Art of Noise, Rush, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Robert Palmer, Psychadelic Furs, Talk Talk, The Cars, Ultravox, Steve Winwood, Rush, Stevie Nicks, Thomas Dolby, Pet Shop Boys, Mike and the Mechanics, and Stevie Wonder.

However the buyer should know:

This unit predates MIDI [was built between 1982-1984] and will require a technician to complete the build we started for the MIDI to EVU converter, as planned here: http://www.hermannseib.com/english/synths/ppg/midiretro.htm

All of the parts, veroboard circuit, and new OS ROMs are included.

The unit will work directly a PPG Wave via an active PPG Bus, but DOES NOT work with MIDI until you or a technician complete the included veroboard circuit.

Sale includes the following:

(1) PPG EVU Expansion Voice Unit: 4u rack module with 8 independent outs, volume & pan controls; PPG Bus I/O, Tape SYNC I/O and Pedal input
(1) Current Virtual Music 8.3 PPG OS ROMs mounted on veroboard circuit & processor board €80.00 Value — Allows PPG to respond to SYSEX control for remote editing of sounds
