Waldorf Blofeld Desktop Synth Module
Key Features
  • Over 1000 Sounds
  • Programmable 16 Step Arpeggiator
  • Independent Filters, Drive Stages & LFOs
  • Four Fast Envelopes Per Voice
The Blofeld Desktop Synth Module by Waldorf features Waldorf's legendary Analog Modeling Technology and 60 MB of onboard sample memory. That kind of built-in storage allows you to import your own selection of samples and manipulate them using the Blofeld, 16-part multi-timbral virtual-analog synthesis engine. You'll also be able to load and play Micro Q sounds and it comes bundled with Spectre, a free tool for creating and transferring sample content.

It also has 25 voice polyphony, over 1000 factory patches and a programmable 16-step arpeggiator sure to excite and energize your audience and productions. But things don't end there; the Blofeld also features an on-board effects section and the classic Microwave II/XT/XTk wavetables.

Add that to its all-metal white enclosure, stainless steel rotaries, large graphic LED display and multiple oscillator and filter modulations and you've got yourself what is destined to become another Waldorf classic.
