Waldorf Blofeld overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Waldorf Blofeld reviews

    Blofeld Desktop Synth Module is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blofeld is not so much a villain as a rascal This synth is versatile as any I've worked with thus far. Tender little twinkles, robust booming bass, shimmering pads, leads that can tear a hole though space and time, and thick atmospheres. Make sure to train your ears beforehand because if you aren't careful it'll blast them off. The filters are so flexible that I sometimes let it go too far and it can squeal like a pig. I cannot wait to put this through some extra outboard filtering and processing and let it's mischievous timbre meander a bit.
