Waldorf

Elegant and wicked next-generation analog-modeling synthesis!

Blofeld is a desktop synthesizer module featuring Waldorf's legendary Analog Modeling Technology. This generation of modeling is improved in many facets and allows an even more authentic emulation of the analog circuitry it's based on.

Simply twisting Blofeld's solid aluminum knobs dials you right into the heart of sound. A clearly laid out control matrix allows you instant access to all key parameters. And a jumbo paper-white display lets you navigate easily and confidently through sounds and less frequently used settings.

All this comes in a high-quality desktop enclosure loaded with 1000 fully editable Waldorf sounds. The Blofeld synth connects to your computer through for your sound editing and management convenience. What's more, you can load and play Micro Q sounds without any compromises in audio quality.

You also get Spectre, a free tool for creating and transferring sample content for Waldorf Blofeld Module with License SL upgrade installed and Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard (License SL not required for Keyboard). This is NOT a patch editor. Downloand the PC or Mac version and manual here: http://www.waldorfmusic.de/en/archive?relPath=blofeld/spectre.

Comments about Waldorf Blofeld Desktop Synth Module:

My first hardware synth module was a Waldorf Microwave that I bought from the sound guy at Antone's. I remember he hooked it up to the mains to prove the stereo outs worked. The Microwave was
Wet
Digital
Space age
Difficult to program.
I dove into the convoluted menus stumbling on patches and tripping out. It was the filter that made that synth so great and so cosmic; so far out. The only caveat: adjusting in real time required some midi wizardry.
My next synthesizer of note was a Dave Smith Mopho synth module that I bought at Switched On in east Austin used. To me the Mopho was everything the Microwave wasn't;
Dry
Analog
Retro
Easier to program.
By this time I was regularly performing and the little Mopho module stood up and looked cool. It sounded like a monophonic hardware analog synthesizer no more no less. Well... except for the brass balls.
Now for the blofeld; in my opinion it is a fitting grandchild to the wavetable. I mean, I'll never live through a Great Depression or fight in a world war and my grandfather will never use a smart phone or bookface. I'd say it's nearly as headache menu driven as the Microwave and the infinite clickless pots take some getting used to. It can be wet but nowhere near as wrap around jello mouldy as the Microwave. It doesn't drive like the Mopho. The Mopho is here to pump you up; the blofeld is a puny little girly man. But it isn't really in the same league. The Mopho is purely monophonic; one note at a time. It is pure analog and will only give you one wave one filter at a time. That isn't what the blofeld is about. It is actually kind of natural to think of it in terms of an evil arch nemesis; sinister, subtle, spoon-bending. I kind of love it. German engineering bang for your buck.

Great Sound, but some harsh

By Reviewer101

from Alaska

Comments about Waldorf Blofeld Desktop Synth Module:

I just recieved this the other day, and it's been hard trying to find time to get in-depth with it. The sounds can be a little harsh and scary sounding, but I like the sound overall and it compliments my other VA's extremely well. The best thing to do is try it for yourself, because I can see how this sound module might not be for everyone...there are a lot of interesting sounds on this thing, and should be integrated into my set-up in no time. Overall---great sound, but harsh on some presets.
