OVERVIEW

Powerful tabletop synthesizer with expansive sound design abilities.

The Rocket is a powerful tabletop synthesizer from Waldorf that that will propel your creativity into reaching sounds from another world. The Rocket is your vessel to inspiring sound design with a fun and easy to manage control surface that will guide you through its heavy filters, wobbling LFOs, and expansive arpeggios. Standard MIDI I/O and USB port will transfer all your commands, and there’s a VCF input so you can use the Rocket as a filter box for other sources. The sound of the Rocket is much louder than the legendary Saturn V engine, and features an analog multimode VCF with lowpass, bandpass, and highpass, resonance up to self oscillation and beyond, a powerful monophonic oscillator section with Ultra High Density Sawtooth and unison for chord play. Equipped with a powerful Arpeggiator and a destructive Booster circuit, this Rocket is technologically way ahead of all current defense systems. It works as a stand-alone instrument or in any imaginable music production environment. But its most important feature is of course its sound: a real Waldorf synthesizer, powerful, direct and with a lot of love for the details.

Comments about Waldorf Rocket Synthesizer:

In retrospect I should have bought the Korg monotribe but I liked the fact that it had midi built in. The ability to save patches has not been fully implemented and requires a lot of extra work.
I found some third party apps for it. Waldorf mentions that the patches can be manipulated via iPad, but I don't have one and don't intend to purchase one.
I can't recommend it at its current price point.
It sounds neat but at present I have no way to store patches without purchasing third party software.
