Waldorf At The 2014 Winter NAMM Show

waldorf-namm-2014Waldorf is teasing that they are bringing something new to the 2014 NAMM Show:

“We just embarked on the bus from Waldorf to Anaheim, and we packed some exciting new products!”

We’ll have official details next week from the NAMM Show.

In the meantime, let us know what you think is coming from Waldorf! It’s got a filter!

  1. Hmmm. Nothing beats Big Bird in my opinion. Maybe it’s an updated Blofeld type with a layout that gets close or nails the 1-knob-per-function – that might possibly be an alternative to VIRUS, but at a better price point? – Long shot, but that’s what I’d like to see. :-) (……with vocoder)

  2. Definitely Rocket based because of the fixed point knobs ….Blofeld & pulse are endless encoders .
    PolyRocket would be cool at right price.

    Note press release is plural ” products ” so maybe more to follow.

    • they are only endless encoders because its a matrix style layout – i.e. one knob controls multiple functions..

      if there is a knob-per-function you dont need endless encoders, because the range for “resonance” for example, is always the same

  3. A slightly souped up 4 voice Rocket, the Moonraker.

    or

    Blofeld plus, with a couple of analog filters and some tweaking in the engine room.

    Neither will happen, but I would buy both.

  4. what matter if it beats the other competitors ?
    With regard to brontonsaures such dsi, moog or roland , any company with little inventiveness could reach customers !

  5. My guess is a Rocket keyboard with sound storage & a funky sequencer – i hope. That to me would be logical and in competition with what Moog are offering. I hope i’m right as it would be a kick ass product as i liked the Rocket but it needed the extra capability. I’m watching with interest…

  7. I’m hoping for an 8-voice hybrid synth with digital oscillators and analog filters. Waldorf are so ripe for this, they just need to add the Pulse 2’s filter to the Blofeld – and it would sound amazing! And who’s the competition in the analog poly hybrid? I think there’s just about only DSI.
