Hands-On Review: Waldorf Rocket Synthesizer


The Rocket is German company Waldorf's recent entry in the  desktop synthesizer market. While ultra-portable and relatively inexpensive, the Rocket delivers some powerful sounds; aided by a terrific sounding analog filter and a booster circuit for added warmth and distortion. Although it's basically a single-oscillator synth, Waldorf has some clever tricks to leverage fat poly-saw sounds, intervals and even chords of up to 8 notes from the Rocket. In this video review, Rob Rives takes us on a tour of Rocket's controls and features, having a look and a listen to its LFO/Arpeggiator, envelope and filter controls, MIDI implementation and unusual oscillator section.
