Maxidingue's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Amazing value for money"

Waldorf Rocket
No keyboard there is a sound module in a nice square box black / green screen printing, the most beautiful effect
11 knobs, 8 switches is simple. Full audio connectors in and out mono, MIDI, USB (which feeds the machine)
1 VCO, 1VCF (LP, BP and HP), 1 VCA always in simplicity
LFO 1 / Arpegiatteur
no effect
2 waveforms + waves in Waldorf

Monaural but thanks to a tip there is a mode that generates pseudo-polyphonic 8 channels at the same time, ideal for trance agreement


We can use simpler
We choose the wave or wave form, we detune + / -, we glide + / -
you open the filter (cutoff) is damn him potato resonnance + / - boost, adjusting the envelope tracking
elongating + / - the decay, it is off or sustain and release

and go

you have to adjust everything, add an LFO to pitch, filter

you can even play nice pre defined arpegg

manual està once entertaining, clear and instructive for beginners


The sounds are excellent, pêchus a desire to lead or bass, soft cloths for pseudo polyphony
in 3 minutes you spend prophet 5 to Moog Taurus

Effect: missing
Aftertouch: is your keyboard command


I week
I had the Phatty on Minitaur, a MS10 (which I sold)
I have a Microbrute and BassStation II

Rocket surpasses the first and adapts royally with the second that I have no regrets for anything (Moog and MS10 of course)

I love the feel of the interface and it allows rapid creation
The small downside is the sustain and release only on, off

and then as I said in the title is amazing value for money I paid € 215 took a quarter of the Phatty, a third of Minitaur for a machine that, in my opinion, is entirely up to the 2 bécannes whose name is clearly paying .....

Waldorf Rocket
analog module with its filter. digital signal.
controlled under live with a master keyboard to sound electro


super simple, with many possibilities in customizing sounds.
color very modern stamp. kraftwerk of 2013 .... what
very easy to handle.


suitable for the electronica or the experimental noise.
very effective in terms of dynamics.
if you want realism go your way, but the synthetic big personality.
the bass is very fat, with a small plastic side near the Minitaur ... and the leads are very acute. Its strong point is the oscillator wave filter. A test before buying.


I have it for a week. bought in Montreal. j hesitated with Minitaur to complete my set up already consists of two analog synth (MiniBrute, 10 ms) with live in the background.
I preferred to have the Minitaur as the sounds are less "seen, heard" ... the Minitaur is fine, but too present in large production. So if you want to be creative and that the search is a very personal sound, it is a good tool to have on the elbow, compact and not very expensive. thus ideal complement to a mininova or a MiniBrute.
