Wavetable Synthesizer
Waldorf - 'M'

waldorf m

A Modernized ClassicThe Waldorf M brings back classic Microwave and ‘modern’ Microwave II tone generation as an updated classic hybrid wavetable synthesizer, featuring analogue lowpass 24 dB/Oct VCF, SSI 2144 Improved Ladder Type, with a resonance and analogue saturation feature, true stereo analogue VCA with panning options and much more. This desktop-friendly form factor synthesizer features a wide range of unique sounds any synth fanatic will enjoy!

With a total of 2,048 sound programs professionally programmed by world-renowned sound designers, you’ll be all set! These include all of the classic Microwave sound sets, such as MW1 Factory Sound Set, MW1 Soundpool 1-5, the huge-sounding Analogue and Bassco, as well as PPG Wave 2.3 sounds intelligently converted for the original Microwave. It also features freshly-programmed sounds utilising M’s myriad new features, from true hard Sync (when working in its Modern Microwave II/XT mode) to the ARP (arpeggiator) and MIDI-syncable global LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator).

Amazing Features • Eight-voice polyphonic, four-part multitimbral synthesizer
• Resonance, analogue saturation and 2048 sounds from wavetable experts
• A new modern mode based on the later Microwave II/XT
• Enhanced analogue SSI2144 filter

High-Resolution Display

Seamless creativityThe M is an eight-voice polyphonic, four-part multitimbral WAVETABLE SYNTHESIZER, as boldly displayed in red across its full-metal blue-coloured enclosure, hinting at its illustrious Microwave heritage are two wavetable oscillators with independent wavetable-generating Classic Microwave 1 and Modern Microwave II/XT modes. This means that the wavetable oscillators work differently in both of those modes, accessible by pressing the Mode button beside the helpful high-resolution graphic display with four endless encoders for even more hands-on control).

In the Classic Microwave I mode there is no hard Sync or ring modulation available, where 16-bit wavetables are bit-reduced to 8-bit and a 240 kHz non-anti-aliased sample rate is offered. Alternatively, the Modern Microwave II/XT mode offers a 40 kHz sample rate with band-limited wavetables, although both oscillators, OSC 1 and OSC 2 offer the same panel parameters.

A New World Of Sounds

Upgraded CapabilitiesTwo LFOs are creating a periodic waveform with adjustable frequency Rate and Shape that can be used for modulation use are always available. Although, unlike other Waldorf synthesizers, there is no modulation matrix in the M. This was conscious design decision to set up M’s modulation facilities directly on the corresponding display page, paying tribute to the 1989-vintage Microwave.

In todays word, the M takes performance up a level, thanks to that advanced ARP with 16 preset patterns, chord mode, and an ability to synchronise to MIDI clock. Four programmable ENVELOPES also allow adventurous users to manipulate sound parameters via rate or timed modulations.

Versatile Output Options

MIDI CompatibleThe M also offers six (rear panel-positioned) stereo analogue outputs, arranged as MAIN OUT (L/Mono and R) and AUX OUT (A, B, C, and D), the latter of which can be used to route each of the four Multi (multitimbral) parts to different outputs if you wish.

Also included is a stereo headphone output (with an associated Volume knob in addition to the topside Master Volume knob); 5-pin MIDI IN, OUT, and THRU DIN connectors, complimented by a USB 2.0 MIDI port (for computer connection to transmit and receive MIDI data); an SD Card slot (for updating M’s firmware, importing/saving sound patches, and importing/saving M-specific data, such as user wavetables); and finally a Kensington® compatible security lock slot.
