Waldorf Q Synthesizer

   0 reviews  -  1145 views

    A German specialty since 1999 - and still one of the most powerful virtual-analog synthesizers in its class. Not least because its operating system has been regularly updated to keep features and performance up to date.
    Q’s sound design abilities and its user-friendly design are simply outstanding. Here’s why: Its recipe combines ingredients like the legendary PPG-filter, a 25-band vocoder, wavetable generators including sub-oscillators, surround delay effects, comb-filter and a whole lot more. Take a bite!

    The memory architecture of the Q is divided into three main sections as shown in the following
    picture. All memory locations are freely programmable, so there is no separation into preset and user

    100 Multi programs (Multi 001…100)
    A Multi program stores information about how up to 16 Sound programs sound at once.
    • 300 Sound programs (Sound A001…C100)
    A Sound program stores information about the character of a sound.
    • 20 Drum Maps (Drum Map D001...D020)
    • 100 Pattern programs (Pattern 001…100)
    A Pattern is used to store step sequencer information that can be used in a Sound or Multi

    You can expand the number of program locations by using a memory card of the type Q-Card 256.
