Waldorf Blofeld Desktop White (+ the license SL) = € 440

I think we all know ...

4 envelopes, 3 oscilloscope, FM, Wavetable, matrix of 16 parameters for the routing, four modifiers, two multi filters, 3 LFO's 2 simultaneous effects ... Characteristics of pro!


Ok, here we enter the sinthés "Not so simple", ie, there so many variables to manage the programming of the sounds going to be a "piece of cake" to be a "game of adults. "

It is very graphic, very pretty and it gives off sounds incredible ... but you know what we do.

there in 1024 you can edit sounds, reset (to start the basic sound of 0) or randomized (random)

16-channel multi-mode (note the polyphony)

The manual is nice, but you have to have knowledge in the synthesis.

The license SL (adds samples to use as oscillators) is great!

effects a little complicated to edit, moderate quality. still nice

Sometimes it is complicated to use, but with perseverance, we get to do what we want.


the original sounds are top, it's better to take time to build its sounds!

Sounds very peculiar to him, digital, crystal clear, sometimes FM, sometimes organic and evolving over time.

Volume of different patches sometimes with large variations

Sounds unrealistic, perfect for electronic and experimental music.


I use it for a year and a half. I love the sounds it can generate, but sometimes you have to pass long time to build them (a lot of parameters!)

Premium-market prices.
