At Musikmesse 2017, Waldorf is introducing the Quantum 8-voice hybrid synthesizer.
The Waldorf Quantum is an 8-voice polyphonic keyboard, with an architecture that uses three digital oscillators per voice paired with analog filters.
The advantage of the digital oscillators is that they can go beyond basic waveforms, with wavetables, particle sampling and more.
In the video, via Sonic State, Rolf Wöhrmann demonstrates a prototype of the new Quantum synth, giving an overview of the new keyboard, discussing its architecture and demoing its capabilities.
Pricing and Availability
The Waldorf Quantum is under development, with a target release date of Q4 2017. Pricing is to be announced.
