A long tradition of wavetable synthesis from first PPG synthesizers to the latest developments in terms of Blofeld and Largo and Rolf Wöhrmann (TempoRubatos) vast experience with the iPad synthesis made it only natural to come up with a wavetable concept for the iPad, which, as a mobile platform, is becoming increasingly more significant to professional and semi-professional musicians and producers.
SampleRobot 4 is the name of Blofeld’s new accomplice. Creating multisamples for Blofeld has never been easier with the help of SampleRobot, as it automatically samples existing instruments. It saves all samples as WAV and assignment information in XML format, ready to be transferred into Blofeld using Spectre.
Deep in the subterranean Waldorf Laboratories, Waldorf’s scientists have finally discovered the finish that delivers the best sound. They almost had forgot about them when they resurfaced and proudly presented the result of their almost endless struggle to find the ideal material: Neither Mauve nor Lavender nor Ochre result in optimal sound, but a special electron absorbing coating in deep black.
What’s that we are seeing on the Waldorf website? Waldorf is announcing special editons of the Blofeld desktop and keyboard synhtesizer. In stylish black!
Waldorf shows us more on the Blofeld synthesizer.
On the Waldorf website there is nothing that reveals they have a Blofeld keyboard version in development or in production. But in the UK you can order the keyboard version of the Blofeld at the Dolphin Music webshop. So? What is up with that Waldorf?
This version is a hotfix addressing bugs reported by our users. It is recommended for all users of the Blofeld. Furthermore a new soundset has been released. This soundset has better matching sound volumes. The sound selection is identical to the soundset released in January 2008. Please note that the soundset replaces all sounds in the Blofeld.
Waldorf will start shipping Blofeld any time soon, according to some rumours. Next to these rumours, Waldorf have released the detailed product info on Blofeld.
