Virtual softsynth with the same engine found in the Waldorf Q, MicroQ, and Blofeld synthesizers.
Many producers and synthesizer enthusiasts asked for a full-blown Waldorf Synthesizer for their virtual rack, and the engineers at Waldorf listened, creating Largo—the first pure software synthesizer with Waldorf DNA. Largo mirrors the technology used in Blofeld and Q hardware synthesizers, giving it a cutting-edge sound that makes a big difference. As with every Waldorf instrument, ergonomics are a core feature, though in this case, it's onscreen. Your eyes will be pleased with the Largo's clearly structured, graphical user interface that supports your workflow intuitively.
The Largo softsynth offers 3 fat oscillators, two of them with sub oscillators. These oscillators include models of classic analog waveforms as well as a selection of waves from the PPG and Waldorf Wave stored in two Wavetables. All these run through two Waldorf multimode filters with steep cutoff, resonance up to self-oscillation, and a drive stage to add even more punch and graininess to the sound. Ultra-fast envelope generators and flexible LFOs, as well as an easy to understand, yet extremely versatile modulation matrix make for a sound designer's dream.
Filters have always been a core part of any Waldorf instrument. With outstanding expertise in both analog and digital synthesis, Waldorf's developers took utmost care in developing the filters for the Largo softsynth. You can use comb filters for plucked, stringed, or blown sounds, and band pass, high pass, low pass, and notch filters are all available with 12dB and 24dB slope. All of them sound extremely accurate and add pure sonic quality to the sound of your music.
The Waldorf Largo contains a flexible arpeggiator with 16 freely programmable steps like the one exclusive to the Q synthesizer line plus an array of high quality effects such as Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Overdrive, Delay, and Reverb.
The clearly arranged user interface helps you create your own powerful synthesizer sounds in a breeze. Oscillators and filters are always in direct access while the submodules are only a mouse click away. It has the same exclusive voice architecture as the Q and Blofeld synthesizer line, fully integrated into the total recall system of your Digital Audio Workstation.
The Largo softsynth works as a VST and AudioUnit instrument.
