After a week with it, I found out what else you can do to a sample with the Wave... Well, everything that the synth allows. Modulate it in many ways, layer with the incredible VA engine, layer it with other samples, add effects (which are more than capable), and play play play them!
It really is not only "running it" through the filters... Sure, in a way there are many more complex sample mangling that can be accomplished with software, and no, you cannot chop, edit, and actually "sample" something on the fly... But as a tool to perform samples and "synthesize" them, I'm thinking this synth has to be one of the best around... Plus, have to say, this is my first Nord product, and one has to applaud how reliable they are and their general quality. So easy to use too...
