PPG Wave 2.V by Waldorf.

PPG Wave 2.V by Waldorf.

Waldorf Music and Beat Magazine are giving away Waldorf Edition LE, a great bundle featuring PPG Wave 2.V, Waldorf Attack and D-Pole filter VST plugins.

Together with Waldorf Music, Beat is giving its readers the full version of a very exceptional plug-in collection consisting of PPG Wave 2.V, Waldorf Attack and D-Pole filter.

To get your free copy of Waldorf Edition LE, visit Beat Magazine’s website and register. After submitting your registration, you should receive an email with instructions for activating your licence. Once that’s done, you’ll receive your registration number and download links (EDIT: special thanks to KeyD for spotting an error in this part of the article).

Now, I’ve registered and downloaded the plugins, but sadly they won’t work on my DAW. I’ve also noticed similar reports from other people on KVR Forums. Basically, it seems that that Waldorf Edition LE simply won’t work on some computers, while it works normally on others. Please let me know how it works for you!

A HUGE thank you to bmovie for sending me info about this! Big ups man, I wouldn’t have found out about this giveaway otherwise (even though I still can’t get it to work, arghhh!).

  1. OS: WinXP SP3, DAW: Reaper 4.25, AMD Athlon II X3, 2GB RAM

    PPG Wave 2.V works fine, D-Pole filter works fine and Attack works fine but crashes Reaper by unloading.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      ahh, that’s very close to my own setup! i honestly can’t figure out why any of the plugins won’t work here.

      • Ok, once I said it in my first post that Attack crashes Reaper by unloading and the other two plugs work fine I tested it again in Jeskola Buzz (Build 1468) and Polac vst 1.1.10 (build 24). Now Attack works fine and quite stable. It is strange, isn’t it?

  2. OS: Win XP SP3, DAW: Ableton Live Lite & Jeskola Buzz

    All 3 plugins working fine in both hosts

    BTW, Beat Magazine are giving away more free stuff, a 6 synths pack that includes DUNE LE & Synapse Audio Junglist , scroll down the page till you’ll see the ad that says “GRATIS Studio-Starter-Kit 6 Synths fur immer!” and click on “Zum Download” , give them your e-mail address and they’ll send you the download link :)

    • any idea why I cant get the link to download properly? every time it finishes the file is at half the size and wont unzip because its corrupt

      • Bedroom Producers Blog on

        hi Basso, try using a download manager like FDM for example. the download went without issues here, but whenever i have trouble downloading a certain file, i use a download manager.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      thanks so much for all the great info, bmovie! i’ll check out the 6 synth pack tomorrow morning. cheers!

  3. I received the mail from with activation instructions, but not download info. offers updates only in download section. My german is of course far from best … cough. I misunderstood something?

      • Thanks. It worked. The article created a confusion, please fix it ;).

        “To get your free copy of Waldorf Edition LE, visit Beat Magazine’s website and register. After submitting your registration, you should receive an email with download and activation instructions.”

        One glitch though. Entering validation code didn’t work with Chrome, argh! In 2012 I still have to keep 3 browsers installed! Firefox worked fine.

        • Bedroom Producers Blog on

          ahh, you’re right, i’ve fixed it now. the first mail only points to the activation page. cheers!

  4. Win 7 x64, Fl Studio 10, Reaper 4.

    Seems fine here.

    BTW I really think bmovie’s link to the starter pack deserves it’s own thread! That’s quite a pack of stuff, All really usable.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      yeah, that other pack seems awesome, i’ll check it out ASAP and create an article about it!

  5. i ve downloaded the file, during the install only dpole and attack are set to be installed. In S1 they don’t show up.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      in my case, all three plugins are installed, but they’re crashing every VST host on my machine.

      • No i ve done launched the install program and every thing is ok according to the program but no files are written into the libraries.
        i even opened the bundle and launched the individual installer (i see the ppg installer) no luck either.
        So if some one can provide me the component file or vst it will be greatly appreciated

  6. Mac install works fine here (10.6). Note that plugins are not 64bit though. All three plugins seem (I can’t make any noise here) to work fine in 32bit Studio One 2.

  7. I’ve tested them in my REAPER, and everything works fine.

    With a bit of tweaking you can get some nice sounds out of it. OTOH, I wouldn’t upgrade to the full edition for 49 euro… There are some better synths in this price class.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      ok, i’ve tested PPG Wave V.2 now and really like it so far. not sure if i’d pay the full price, but it’s a nice synth.

      • The only downside is that the presets have no name or description, but Waldorf said: “The sounds in this sets don’t have descriptive names because the PPG Wave 2.3 didn’t offer naming of sounds.”

  8. Running Windows XP SP 3 and all 3 crash every host I’ve tried (4).

    I notice they don’t actually crash until you open the GUI. I was able to open one in generic UI/paramater view without crashing so it’s clearly GUI related.

    Is it possible they’re expecting some runtime or something to be installed? I didn’t see anything mentioned on Waldorf’s site, but developers sometimes pack things like that into installers set to self install (Sonar for one) and don’t bother mentioning it as a requirement.

      the exact issue was happening on my machine! i followed tico-tico’s tip to manually edit the registry and it works now (scroll down the comments to see the tip).

  9. -Crashes Logic 9 on OSX 10.6.8 very very badly
    -Can’t input activation key in MU.LAB

    Its been a pleasure giving you my details WAldorf. Don’t sell them all at once.

    Try to manually add your email and serial to the registry.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Waldorf\Waldorf Edition]

    serial WITHOUT dashes.

    It works for me.

    • Bedroom Producers Blog on

      WOW, that actually worked! i’d never figure it out myself, thanks so much man!

      for anyone needing a step-by-step guide:

      1) Open your START menu, click on “Run”, type “regedit”, hit ENTER.

      2) Browse to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Waldorf\Waldorf Edition]

      3) Right-Click >> New >> String Value

      4) Name it “Email” and enter you email address as value data.

      5) repeat step #3 but name it “Serial” and enter your serial without dashes.

      BIG UPS tico-tico!

  11. What a joke.
    Never experienced a crash like this in Studio One 2. (WinXP SP3, Athlon X6 1045T, 4GB RAM) Don’t they test these things before giving them out?!?!

  12. this is always the same with waldorf products, i´ve bought the largo its the slowest gui in the world. i will never buy any product from them.

  13. I tried the registry fix outlined above and it fixed everything right up. I missed the bit about removing dashes from the serial# at first and it won’t work without doing that so it’s worth emphasizing the point. Thanks very much!

    I’m plesantly surprised at how good the PPG sounds, it’s like suddenly having all the incedental music from Babylon 5 at your fingertips.

  14. This synth every time crash on whatever host (i have information about access violation, adresses…)
    This is only LE version so i can forget about it.
    By the way, why not to download a demo and then to decide buy or not to buy…?

    • The registry fix worked! In Windows 7 the reg path is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Waldorf\Waldorf Edition

      Just add two new strings: Email and Serial. Enter your email address and activation code WITHOUT dashes.

      Thanks tico-tico!!!

        • Bedroom Producers Blog on

          sorry, i can’t help much there since i can’t re-create the issue on my computer.

          are you absolutely sure you’re following this path:

          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Waldorf\Waldorf Edition


          • Hi,

            I think, for Windows 7, the Waldorf registry keys must have the total control autorizations for the user.

            HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Waldorf\Waldorf Edition

            After this, the plugin don’t ask me the key/serial again.


  15. Has anyone managed to get this working on a mac.
    i get the crashes with PPG and Attack. I am on OSX 10.6.8

    any advoce very welcome
