erewhon's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Unbeatable in my set up"

Waldorf MicroWave XT Rack
Synth tables of the most intuitive wave of family heir Waldorf PPG.


Using two levels, the first easily accessible from the control panel is familiar if you have a minimal knowledge of subtractive synthesis, the second typical Waldorf matrix at various levels and a certain depth helped a relatively large screen and readable at the same Microwave Two, requires some learning and familiarization Waldorfienne logic, but nothing insurmountable, then remains only for pleasure can we appreciate this kind of sounds. .


The sounds are typical of this form of synthesis specializing in evolving sounds, which does not prevent the program short, percussive sounds and out of low honorable (not to compare with analog of course). Having said this generation is unique compared to 1 MW, true hybrid analog / digital single heir or PPG compared to Blofeld cross hybrid of MQ and MW2 at its finest and programming system derived from MQ.


I am familiar with Waldorf since MW1, the XT is my synth reference (see the title of this review). If I go back to Set Up Base that shook an XT and Q Rack where XT and Radias Korg. My XT is an old, one of the first models with screen protector and rough cylindrical buttons. Subsequent generations have identical to the first yellow Q knobs, the latter lose the screen protector and have identical to last Q knobs and a flash paint. There has never been a failure or require reset despite walks in places or too dry or too wet and hot ...

Waldorf MicroWave XT Rack
5 rack units, full connectivity, there is a great editor called "monstrum-wave editor".
it's a great synth for the electronic and very nice music and more.


editing sounds is very inspiring and enjoyable given the number of knobs.


this is a synth made for electronic music. experimentation is endless.
And his waldorf is one of the best especially on this model or we feel the character.


great tying classic, what I like most are the hours of sound design with past .. I had a lot of synths but everyone is different and unique. I still sold more because I use reaktor but I buy it back maybe a blofeld because the price is more boring and I was quite inspired with a micro q in passé.mais if you have the money and want the 'autentique his waldorf and worship spend hours experimenting rather than with a mouse click go!

Waldorf MicroWave XT Rack
Little Monster home waldorf is the rack version of the Waldorf Microwave XTK.
It has two banks of 256 sounds and they are all ditables, convertible etc ...
Delivered in 10 voice polyphony is an extension to pass a 30-track ... the only problem you have to go to waldorf ...
Level connection>> 2 jacks for stereo and two other sub in stereo. For MIDI>>> In / Out / Thru.


For the edition must qund even lean on a minimum!
I would say a month to know him is to start at least a few CRER sounds.
The menus are not cluttered, it is clear, and the disposition of paramtres is good, allowing a quick comprhension. The screen is not big but ample trs.
The manual is very well, but in English ... Anyway, with some concepts we understand!


Sounds !!!!!! E-:-))))))) STANDARDS! Of course do not agree to a dance hall but for the electro of all kinds is a gem! Some say it a little fishing in the lower ... Anything ... Must have a bad MUCH!
For the effects it's all good, flanger, chorus, delay ... But no reverb, too bad.


I recently (maybe 2 months) but I am can not be happier!
What I love are the sounds that gnre! Strings of simple analog to the completely barr brand new! The possibilities are endless!
For the price, I will not complain! 500 euros! Used but good opportunity trs! It's new!

Now that I know him a little, I can say that if c'tait a remake, it would not hsitation!

Waldorf>>> Fabulous!

Waldorf MicroWave XT Rack
- No keyboard is a rack;)
- Level controller, knob 44 to the main function of the synth, so shipping very easy (because you have to cling to dpart)
- A main Stereo jack, a second pair also jack, and the trio noon.
- 2 banks of 128 sounds, crushes when it creates a new. They are more oriented ditables and ground / pad (just the specially of the machine, it must be admitted). Single mode (one's time) and multiplayer (up to 8 effects rested on the 3 first). 2 flangers, autowah, distortion, delay in the effects menu. Its chorus. Synthse wavetable.
- Editable with SoundDiver, for example.
- 10 voice polyphony expandable 30.


- Level configuration, you must first become familiar with the matrix edition sounds, it is srigraphi top right on the machine and it's no worse.
- The edition is greatly facilitated by the 3U knob compared to conventional microwave.
- The manual is available in German or English (I have the English version, and it is comprhensible complete with a few tips here and l.


- Type electro, techno, I should particulirement for sounds "chelous". Cloth, pads, fx, is his thing. Modulation matrix monstrous agrmente envelopes can also be used as modulation source.
- Sounds ralistes is not the purpose of the machines.
- The effects are more than adequate even if I use very little.

Note that it is possible to soundiver CRER its own wavetable in large fragments of wave and is the gateway to the DLIR wildest ...


- I use it for about a year, and it is far from being the machine that I know best. The wavetable is synthse particulire, the edition is smooth, the slightest change paramtres can radically alter the sound.
- 3U J'apprcie normment the knobs to move as little as possible by the matrix of shipping, even if it is clear.
- This is my first synth hard, doing some APRS mumuse with various soft, I took my snaps.
- With the current rating occasion is a good investment for those looking for groundwater / pads / sounds scrolls.
- I repeat one myself if I needed spare, if only for the mass of hours I spent on it (he served well, we never tire of it)
