Mac Music reports that Studiologic has released a free firmware upgrade for their Sledge analog modeling synthesizer ($1599 MAP).
The upgrade effectively doubles the instrument’s polyphony from 8 voices to 16. The update is shipping in new units and is available as a download for units already in the field.
Details appear to be to come at the Studiologic site. If you’ve got more info, let us know in the comments!

Any user experiences here?
i’m not but it has waldorf (blofeld) engine here is a review with videos (in italian but you can translate it)
According to the full review at SonicState it does not have a Blofeld engine. It was designed by Waldorf for this keyboard. I suspect it is more related to a MicroQ but that is just speculation.
This great synth is absolutely on my ste… errr buying list! I think this is the best synth that Waldorf [well – StudioLogic] has released in a long time.
I updated my sledge but now panel button control does not work. Any suggestions?
Have one, it’s great. The polyphony limit leaves a lot of room to work with. A couple knobs/switches cause some noise when you adjust them (like the delay time….), but it’s very few and it’s ones you wouldn’t need to adjust as much during a performance. The filter sounds great. Lots of good stereo pictures are available with the delay and a stereo signal path. Looking forward to getting more stereo pedals to take full advantage of this thing. I have a Boss RC30 (looper with 2x stereo tracks), makes it incredibly easy to layer some fantastic sounds.
