Features have been added to the original Wave, but from the specs it appears its synth engine has been simplified (A1-ish). E.g. only one LFO !

I think my Nord G2 Engine can still whoop its backside when it comes to the analog side..... ;)

I must be a grumpy old git today..... ;)

I hate product demo videos where it is 80% talking and 20% less or playing; I want to hear what it sounds like, not somebody telling me stuff I can read from a spec sheet.

Again, there was nothing in the sounds I heard that made me go "wow". I think my 2006 Nord G2 Engine sounds better; and of course I can patch it any way I want. Of course it does not have Wave Tables, but it is a fully patchable VA with patchable FM.
