An intoxicating blend of synthesis and sampling.

If the look doesn™t stop you in your tracks, the sound will. The Studiologic Sledge 2.0 is a welcomed update to the original version, blending an intoxicating mix of pure synthesized tones with organic sound sampling. With double the polyphony, Sledge 2.0 give you up to 24 voices that can be played simultaneously for even greater control and completely new sound combinations. In addition to its incredible sound engine and user-friendly control panel, Sledge 2.0 further expands the instrument' power and versatility. Studiologic and Waldorf Labs teamed up to make Sledge 2.0 more flexible as a pure synthesizer, adding the ability to play in Dual Mode two programs at the same time, load samples and mix post processing effects for an endless array of sonic creativity.

Auto Dual mode: Sledge 2.0 can now play two sounds at the same time, in Split or Layer mode; the feature is controlled by a new page of the Global function and allows to simply keep one note (for Split) or more notes (for Layer) and then select a new sound, that will be added to the previous sound; as any other sound, also Dual Sound combinations can be permanently stored in any of the 1.000 available presets;

Sample Player: sound samples and new waves can be loaded in the internal 60 megabyte of Flash memory, played by OSC 1 and modifiable by all parameters of the control panel, adding other oscillators, setting filters, envelopes and effects. This feature can constantly expands the instrument' sounds and create a totally new combination of synthesis and sampling.

Pitch & Hold controls: a new Global page allows to enable the Pitch and the Hold separately for the Lower and Upper sounds in Dual Mode, allowing to use the Pitch bend on the Upper sound (i.e. for solo parts) and the Hold pedal to control only the Lower (to keep playing a Drums groove or as a Damper for a Piano sound) and vice versa, or to enable Pitch Bend and Hold on both Upper and Lower sounds;

Reverb+Delay: a new function allows to mix both effects; the Reverb keeps the setting previously selected, while the real time controls (time and level) allows to set the parameters of Delay also when mixed.

Enhanced Polyphony: the total maximum number or notes that can be played at the same time have been expanded to 24, allowing to get a better real time control over the new sound possibilities obtainable from synthesis and sampling together.

Sledge Spectre: samples can be edited (keyboard range, tuning and other parameters) and transmitted to Sledge 2.0 by the USB port, with this easy sample editor that allows to first load and play the samples on your Computer and then download them into the instrument' memory.

    Comments about Studiologic Sledge 2.0 Polyphonic Synthesizer:

    With this unit, you get a firmware-driven subtractive VA which is extremely versatile. This synth can go from Moog to Oberheim (the stock Oberheim patch actually sounds identical to the Oberheim in Rush's "Subdivisions"), to whatever you dream up.

    The onboard, realtime programming realised via the excellently laid-out interface, consisting of all knobs and buttons, makes it one of the most fun synths since the Roland JD-800. There is no menu-diving to this model. There are menus, but you don't need them while doing realtime programming, and none are nested.

    The sound is superb. I'm feeding mine through a Peavy Bass Max 112 200w amp, and it sounds absolutely luxurious.

    If you features with other synths, you realise you get a full 61-key keyboard where most in this class offer only 49-key keyboards, more oscillators than some, and some onboard effects, to boot. This is because it's firmware-driven, not a pure analog synth. This may not appeal to analog purists. That said, the emulation is first-rate, and unless you know what drives it, you can't tell. You get all the richness of analog, with the stability of digital. It's a win-win.

    My only real complaint is that, as many modulation routing options as it offers you, you start wishing for the kind of arbitrary modulation routing of many softsynths at times while trying to create a specific effect. This will be true of any hardwired analog synth, and is not exclusive to this unit.

    You can't go wrong with this unit, really. I love mine, and have zero regrets. It's brought me nothing but pleasure.

        Comments about Studiologic Sledge 2.0 Polyphonic Synthesizer:

        This is one cool and hot modern day synth! It looks loud and will sound loud, if you devote a little time to making your own unique sounds. It is lightweight and easy to move on your back. The price is very affordable. A wise investment for a polyphonic and warm sounding synthesizer.
