Polyphonic and multitimbral synth rack.
Connectivity: USB and noon (there is no MIDI Through!), Audio out.


The edition is rather simple despite the limited number of encoders. The srigraphie can easily corrected himself.


The factory presets are partly flat, and have enough volume Ingal. But the possibilities of this synth are such that we can get out more. The modulation matrix and oprateurs can choose almost any source imaginable and to assign them some prs every destination imaginable. The DIFFERENT types of filters (LP, HP, PPG LP, BP, comb, etc.) with distortion as possible on the resolution (in addition to the distortion found in the effects section) and DIFFERENT possible routings (Parral the, SERIES) also offer many possibilities.


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.
