Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard Virtual Analog sintetizzatore nero
Believe it or not, but Waldorf insists that this black edition of the Blofeld Keyboard virtual analogue synthesizer produces an even better sound than the white model. Thanks to a special finish, electrons are absorbed into the electronic circuitry. Prick up your ears and see if you can tell the difference!
Characteristics of the black Waldorf Blofeld virtual analogue keyboard
In addition to its sleek black looks, the Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard synth has 49 semi-weighted, velocity-sensitive keys with aftertouch, a pitch wheel and a modulation wheel. Numerous effects, 60 MB of sample memory, a USB connector for MIDI applications and a well-organised layout seal the deal.
The keyboard synth is equipped with three oscillators with circuit models of analogue waveforms: sawtooth, pulse (with variable pulse width), triangle and sine wave. Oscillators 1 and 2 offer wavetables that were also used for the Waldorf Q, Wave and Microwave XT/II, and both feature a ring modulator that enables you to create pounding bass tones and leads.
The Blofeld allows you to use up to four envelopes with either a single or polyphonic trigger - particularly compelling with the monophonic voice allocation, as you can set the filter envelope to be triggered by just the first note, while the amp envelope is triggered on each note. It’s great for organ percussion sounds, for example. The envelope types include a standard ADSR and an enhanced ADSR variation.
Effects and filters
Of course the Blofeld Keyboard features a number of built-in effects. Two effect slots offer you a choice of chorus, flanger, triple FX, delay, clocked delay and reverb. Set to multimode, the first effect slot is available per part, while the second slot can be used for all parts simultaneously. Additionally, it’s possible to set two filters per voice, which can be routed in series or parallel. Filter types include low pass, band pass, high pass and a notch filter, and each filter has a range of 12dB/oct or 24dB/oct slope.
The Blofeld features an arpeggiator with variable clock divisions from 1/64 triplets to more than 1,000 bars, a swing/shuffle function and a range of up to ten octaves. Up, down, in a selectable play order from low to high note, low to high velocity, variable note length, different velocity notes, and more - take your pick. With the Blofeld Pattern Editor, you can easily create the arpeggios you desire.
