News Waldorf MicroWave 2

The MicroWave II is a rackmount synthesizer with 10-voice tone generation, which features two oscillators per voice, two wave generators, a mixer, two serially-connected filters, a stereo amplifier, four envelopes, two LFOs, a modulation matrix with 16 slots and several “modifiers”.


Per sound, the MicroWave II offers an arpeggiator and powerful envelope and voice-trigger modes.

Outside, it has 5 dials and a 2 × 40 character LCD. On the back the MicroWave II sports two modulatable stereo outputs to ensure that its sound is properly sent to the real world.

The MicroWave II also has an integrated chorus effector that is capable of producing the “Ensemble” effect, according to Waldorf.
