The Studio Logic Sledge synthesizer made its Musikmesse debut this week.

The Sledge is a new polyphonic keyboard, based on Waldorf’s sound engine.

Here’s a quick demo, from the Musikmesse show floor, that highlights the Sledge’s user interface, synthesis capabilities and offers an intro to the new synth’s sound.

  1. This does look really nice – knobs everywhere and Waldorf sound!

    I’ve read mixed reviews of Fatar keyboards (the mechanism/keybed that is) and have never played one… but if I’m not mistaken, they used to make a model with poly aftertouch…. perhaps one day….

  2. aren’t 90% of the keyboards on the market using fatar keybeds? Anyway having a blifeld and totally loving it, this one looks really desirable… and the yellow actually is quite nice inho.

  3. like to see more demo/sounds/reviews from this but it looks very promising!
    Only the lcd screen is a little small I think?

  4. This is a great looking synth, and I think they hit exactly the target that can be successful today. Focused power, great sound, tons of knobs, easy to carry around, and very affordable. There is a range of pretty limited instruments starting to show up at around $600-$700, but for only $400 more you get a ton of value with a board like this.

    I think realistically, today you need to sell synths at the $300-$400 range, and the $1000 range. Anything above that is boutique or highly limited sales potential.
