Description

Nave - next generation Wavetable Synthesis

Nave is Waldorf’s first synthesizer App development – created by chief engineer and 
director Stefan Stenzel, NLog mastermind Rolf Wöhrmann and Design Guru Axel Hartmann.

The Nave sound engine includes two novel Wavetable oscillators, leaving every previous attempt in wavetable synthesis far behind. The spectrum of a sound can be transposed independently of its pitch. The waves are being rendered periodically to noisy. Especially sounds with an accent on formants can be reproduced easily, which made us integrate a speech synthesizer for the easy creation of wavetables.

The clearly structured UI invites both beginners and advanced users to experiment, and the large display of 
the iPad makes Wavetable creation and editing a blast. Besides Speech Synthesis, Wavetables can also be made by analysing audio files. Further stretching, rotating and shifting in spectral domain allows Wavetables to be further refined or distorted.

All factory Wavetables from Microwave, Wave and Blofeld are included, complemented by new ones that make extensive useof the enhanced possibilities.

In addition to the Wavetable Oscillators, Nave offers an oscillator module featuring the novel Überwave that can fatten your sound by up to eight detuned oscillators.

The filter offers the familiar outstanding Waldorf sound, featuring lowpass, bandpass and highpass with either 12dB or 24dB slope.

The Drive section offers different characteristics, and it can be positioned in the signal path: before or after the filter, or as a summing overdrive before or after the equalizer - for those who prefer harsh screaming sounds over delicate Wavetable sweeps.

An extended modulation matrix and diverse real time control functionality is waiting for animating Nave sounds in any desired direction.

Besides the classic virtual chromatic keyboard, Nave can be played with the “Blades” that allow for dynamic triggering of polyphonic modulation by sliding the fingers in x or y direction.

The 4-track recorder can be used to build your own Nave songs or to simply sketch your music, inspired by the sounds of Nave.

The magic carpet synth

If this thing was packed in a metal box with knobs, you would pay BANK for something as special as Nave. Wonderful sounding, bursting with creative potential. There's a lot to take in but after a few hours you will be creating crazy, lush, chaotic, brutal, hypnotic works of art. There are some stability bugs I've noticed using my 3rd gen iPad on iOS 7.0 so save often. Pulling up menu items can seem unresponsive at times. Bugs I'm sure will be resolved in future updates. This synth sits right up there with Animoog, Thor, and Magellan. Thank you Waldorf!!!! Update 2016- still blows me away that this app completely destroys hardware synths. Amazing. Keep up the good work Waldorf!

Synth of Pure Beauty ...

I am on iOS 9.0.2 on iPad Air II 128
This update has not offered any issues that I have noticed ...
THE SOUND is inspiring, Angelic, Beautiful, & rivals SO many hardware synths -- I do Ethereal Ambient music & Nave fits the bill better than most ... I LOVE THIS SYNTH !!!!
The UI is GORGEOUS & intuitive, & programming is not too hard ... I can not possibly recommend this synth enough - Just get it ... You Will Not be disappointed - & if you are pfffff - this has GOT TO BE the sweetest iOS synth out there with Animoog possibly 2nd place ... ❗👍💜

Add Basic Sequencer ?

I agree with most positive reviews, it's great.
HOWEVER, can we please add at least a basic sequencer for recording. I have to play entire tracks in real time all the way through and if one measure is off timing, I have to re-record over ...and over. Please add a sequencer with quantization.... Please.
...And soon, I have work to do. Professional tools need profession features. Thank you
