The StudioLogic Sledge Polyphonic Keyboard Synthesizer

Studiologic Sledge synthesizer

At the 2012 NAMM Show, Studiologic introduced the Sledge polyphonic keyboard synthesizer – a new keyboard, based on a Waldorf sound engine.

The Sledge combines the power of the Waldorf engine with a retro, knobby front panel.

The synth is based around the latest Waldorf modelling technology, offering virtual analog and wave table synthesis, derived from the PPG wave. The three oscillators, plus a Noise generator, are fed into Sledge’s multimode filter, with selectable 24 / 12 dB slope.The old school interface makes clear the signal path and how each control affects the result.

And two built-in effect units deliver Chorus, Phaser and Flanger, as well as a reverb or an analogue style delay.
