"A nice surprise"

I bought mine here, a few months ago. It looks amazing and feels pretty nice to. There may be a slight issue with the volume at a very low setting where the knob does not work as smoothly as I would like. Sometimes I get unexpected results when I work a knob setting, these can be a great thing! The subtle changes that can be achieved are very interesting, even to someone who has a few wave scanning synthesizers...this one is well worth using. The keys feel very nice too. I like the way the outputs are on the side and having the headphones there too works out nicely. There is room for a small box on top or put you phones there. The keyboard is not very heavy- yet it is sturdy. I already have 2 other actual German designed Waldorfs, Q and the Blofeld and this is actually a good addition. Layer the sounds, sample your euro stuff and play wav tables, it's all good. The envelopes are fat with a fantastic feel, the effetcs are pretty good and the 2 seperate osc. are very nice. It is a good machine to learn on and can go pretty deep as far as it's programmable features go. I saw a recent post where someone said they paid 4k for the Waldorf Quantum, just to use as as sampler, I say forget that for now and do a little experimenting...I can use software to do granular, sample it and import it in a fairly short time. Results, rell, I am happy right now. Do want a quantum or the Sequential x? Sure, that will come later. Maybe someone will make something better by then, who knows? The main thing is, for me, do I want instant play ability or something unique I designed and forced (encouraged) to happen? It depends. I make sounds I find interesting and use them when I need them. Did I mention the HUGE storage slots for patches? Yeah, the Sledge has them.
Many years, samplers, analog, digital, computer, I play anywhere I can.
