  1. I’d have loved if they had made it compatible with Blofeld patches (though I can see there’s still a couple of missing features compared to the Blo’ like filter drive curves), I’d have taken the plunge at that intro price actually !

    Sold my Blo’ a while back and still have tons of custom patches I’d like to reuse, but being disheartened to buy one again due to the couples very annoying bugs the Blo’ has that Waldorf never solved (like LFO MIDI sync glitches).

    1. Largo V1 has 8 different drive curve/shaper options. Not sure where they’re hidden in Largo v2.

      I expected Largo 2 to have Blofeld import, too. A shame they didn’t include it. Largo does 85% of what the Blofeld does. It at least has all the majority of the hardware wavetables included. Largo V1 doesn’t let you load custom wavetables, though.

  2. I love a Waldorf. There’s little in the feature set to make this unique outside it’s a Waldorf. The proof will be in the listening. Flat graphics now

  3. Audio.plugin.deals search for Waldorf Largo (29.95) with TREAT20 for -20%. Then Jrrshop.com for Largo 2 upgrade with GROUP for -15%. Crisp, clear, significant synth with metallic tones.

  4. I find the GUI to be too flat compared to v.1, but that’s a minor point. Its all *about* the “Waldorf sound.” I’ve gotten tired of a few synths and discarded them after a while, but only a few. If you’re into it, you can hear the difference in general tone between Arturia, the Roland Cloud or a Korg plug. Largo 2 is sort of clean, even when its being gritty. It has an interesting quality I like. It’ll be the new power synth for a certain crowd.

  5. They expect people to pay for this hideous looking upgrade, all they have done is make it it possible to drag a hideous looking gui , larger and more hideous.
