    Too bad for them and for lovers of the brand, like me ...

    This synth can be well deserves its commercial name after all ...
    It would have been the usurper named 007 ...

    Because he never loses.



    USE

    So ... The note is not good that's for sure ... it's A shares on menu menu ...

    SONORITS

    Very good. I love it.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I have a lot of other synth VA nums plugs, analos.
    This is my second Blofeld so ...

    Small rack whose characteristics are available on the website of Waldorff

    USE

    The configuration is very comfortable given the number of effective controls grace and generous screen printing screen. But obviously, with so few buttons, the edition is less comfortable than an instrument where each function has its controller.
    The manual is clear.

    SONORITS

    The factory proposs sounds rather "lightweight" but by creating its own presets, you can go out pretty phat sounds.
    The possibilities offertent by routing modulations, 4 envelopes, operators etc make huge possibilts in terms of sound design.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for over a year. Regarding the power of Blofeld, I am fully satisfied. However, it is now suffering from a problem knob (infinite): one of the four main knobs "jump" alatoirement and very quickly when rotated. The instrument as still under warranty, it will go back bientt service after sale.
    The quality-price ratio is very good.
    With the experience, especially after purchasing a Andromeda A6, I'm not on the choice again, however, I do not regret my purchase.

  • No better than vsti + controller

    Synth polyphonic format tabletop, well made solid (made in germany requires) look but its qualities stop there. Radin connectors: MIDI IN, USB, stereo audio out + phone out.
    Ability to edit the sounds via its editor mac / pc dedicated, but I've never understood why go through an app so that at the hardware on hand, it always seemed contradictory.

    UTILIZATION

    This machine is synonymous with menu and sub menu. I have a virus b with which it is often compared, that is what I decided to bought it but I was disappointed.

    UTILIZATION

    This machine is synonymous with menu and sub menu. I have a virus b with which it is often compared, that is what I decided to bought it but I was disappointed. Editing sounds is tedious, the knobs are somewhat bizaroïde reactions and compared to the ergonomics of virus there is a world! A good controller midi + vsti to better possibilities to view games.

    SOUNDS

    It is cold, metallic, the effects are toy. The output level is low it takes at a compressor ass to incorporate a mix. Levels between the filters are unstable short compared to a virus once again there is a world.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for three months non-stop, hoping to draw a few things but nothing works the sound is not there and ergonomics either. If you are new and want a synth controller via an app go is cheap but I still advise you to go for a ride on the side of access is more rounded, warmer, more stable and level fun games there is no picture!

    Polyphonic and multi-timbral synthesizer analog modeling.
    - 3 oscilloscope Voice
    - Modeling analog waveforms (sine, sawtooth, triangle, square)
    - Tables inherited Q waves
    - Noise Generator
    - Sampling (optional on the block version as of one hundred euros)
    - 2 multimode filters (lowpass, highpass, bandpass, cut tape, comb)
    - 4 envelopes
    - 3 LFO
    - FM
    - Modulation Matrix
    - Effects (chorus, delay, distortion ...)

    The construction is robust with its metal frame, it is far from existing plastic toys that we currently serve Korg or Roland in these price ranges.

    - Arpeggiator

    The construction is robust with its metal frame, it is far from existing plastic toys that we currently serve Korg or Roland in these price ranges.

    UTILIZATION

    My copy came with the OS v1.15, this is no longer the plant bugs as was clearly the case in the past, but there are still crashes from time to time (it's happened to me a few Once I have to turn off the machine because more way to change the patch), there are always variations in the volume of factory presets a floor to another, which can be quite annoying.

    Editing is less straightforward than a Nord Lead or MS-2000 because it is not "one button, one function", but the clever link between the matrix and silkscreened the screen allow quick access parameters (bloated) without losing too much in the menus / submenus.

    A good knowledge of the synthesis is preferable before tackling such a device, although dissect the factory presets can give ideas.

    SOUNDS

    Engine power and well thought out ergonomics allow for complex and evolving sounds an instrument of choice for industrial, experimental music. The arpeggiator is great ADDITION Blofeld and makes a machine of choice for electro punchy.

    By against the grain Waldorf hard enough, is not ideal for big bass to Moog filters sounding pretty metal, it is more in the spirit of the PPG Wave that old analos.

    The effects are not great, especially the reverb, good external effects will not be a luxury.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have since about a year, quite curious about the Waldorf grain and quite attracted by the price (less than 400 € new) and its compact and robust format that can take them anywhere.

    Hopefully the next version of the OS (currently still in beta) correct the remaining bugs to consider use with confidence on stage, which will further improve the quality / price ratio, already great, this instrument.

  • Needs more knobs

    Waldorf BlofeldPublished on 10/28/12 at 23:18
    The Waldorf Blofeld is a digital synth that comes with over 1,000 sounds and presets. You can use up to 25 voices on the Waldorf Blofeld and it only cost 700 dollars. The interface on the Waldorf Blofeld is very easy to use and understand. It is very self explanatory, you will not need a manual to understand this synth. It can hook up to your computer through USB and you can use your MIDI connections to control the sounds from your MIDI keyboard. The arpeggiator on the Waldorf Blofeld is so good, it makes standard keyboard arpeggiators look like a kids toy.

The arpeggiator on the Waldorf Blofeld is so good, it makes standard keyboard arpeggiators look like a kids toy.

    UTILIZATION

    You can get some really good sounds with the Waldorf Blofeld. You can start building your sounds from the presets that it provides or you can pretty much build a sound yourself from scratch. The only downfall of the Waldorf Blofeld is that the interface does not have all of the knobs for the parameters on it. It would be nice if all of the knobs were right on the face of the unit and then you could tweak everything in real time until you had a sound that you were happy with.

    SOUNDS

    Setting up the Waldorf Blofeld is simple, you will just need to make sure that all of your connections are set up right. The Waldorf Blofeld does have some effects on it like flanger, phaser, delay, reverb, overdrive and chorus. Since I have been using the Waldorf Blofeld I have been able to get way better sounds than any VST that I have used.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The Waldorf Blofeld cannot be racked, it will need to be placed on a desktop surface but that is ok because it is not that big. It is less than a foot wide which makes it the perfect desktop size. If you don’t want just the module you can purchase the full keyboard version.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for half a score of months, I bought it for its attractive price and to give me a hand on anything other than synth softwares. I like the contact with the machine solid and well screwed. I am not satisfied with the digital sound that can be drawn. I find wrong and I would appreciate the effects of other audio outputs for multitimbral engine. For the bargain price, it's worth Blofeld. I am now eyeing a 2x Nord Rack.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is synthtiseur trs powerful for its price. Some may compare it to the Virus. I do not allow it since I never possd Virus. Nanmoins, given the data sheet, we are facing a synthtiseur srieux. At this price there s no real competition with this degree of modularity.
    I sold nanmoins APRS have acquired analog (Alesis Andromeda, Systm Doepfer A100). It is, against another world for the price ...

    I keep a good memory of trs Blofeld even if I have to evokes some worry that I faced. Ractive dropped his ds when I sent him the midi-clock. May be a concern in the installation of my studio, but better to be careful, because it makes use for live tweaking with trs difficult and hazardous.
    In addition, I had a problems with an encoder (which is unfortunately more frquent in this price range) that Waldorf me of course replaced under warranty ... An encoder for a Crant deuxime return has t Necessary for putting the right encoder.

    In hindsight, if I had a budget of around 400 and if j'tais looking for a powerful device many opportunities, I would do probably the choice.

  • waldarf is epic

    Waldorf BlofeldPublished on 11/01/11 at 22:05

    I own a number of synths including a Roland JP-8080 and Virus Snow, but this is my favorite along with the DSI Tetra. I have had it for about eight months and use it constantly. The unit is compact but solid as a rock. It is also the best looking desktop synth on the market. It sounds beautiful, and its patches range from harsh basses to shimmering pads. While it is digital, it can be warm, too.


    UTILIZATION

    Most parameters are easy to access, and it is especially fun to mess with the wave forms to create moving effects. Even so, my biggest complaint is that it lacks a VST interface like the Virus Snow. Also, the operating system tends to be buggy, although the latest software......

    UTILIZATION

    Most parameters are easy to access, and it is especially fun to mess with the wave forms to create moving effects. Even so, my biggest complaint is that it lacks a VST interface like the Virus Snow. Also, the operating system tends to be buggy, although the latest software revision has fixed a number of minor problems.

    SOUNDS

    If you want something that can mimic natural instruments like a guitar or a flute then forget it. This little beast is meant to sound synthetic and is great for emulating later day Kraftwerk-style songs (think Tour de France). Despite the limited number of knobs, programming is easier than I first expected. The display is big and the programming matrix benefits from a logical layout. Blofeld has a unique sound of itself. At the same time, it gathers different synthesis approach in one box which is good. The best part of the synth must be the Wavetable and the filter (the comb filter). Built like a brick! Quality Product and Good Sounding. Best Synth i have used


    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, I would recommend the Blofeld to anyone interested in making music that ranges from minimal tech or dance anything to industrial to ambient to eighties revival. I highly recommend this desktop synth for everyone who can afford it, it does cost a lot though. But its worth every cent with out a doubt.
