The yellow beast is up for a nice review – check out the teaser video for more details and sounds
Mitchell Sigman gives a quick overview of Studiologic’s new Sledge virtual analog synthesizer. Full review coming soon in Keyboard Magazine!
A flip through of various presets, plus a couple of home-grown sounds to go with the full review http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCS2Sj2ngNE.
“I dont think the presets show off the synth to its full potential – far better to create your own with a synth like this.”
Here’s a nice demo of the Sledge synth by a German music store, here’s what they have to say about it (Googlish from German):
“At this year’s Musikmesse, he was presented to the enthusiastic fans of synth: The Studio Logic Sledge synthesizer is finally here! As a fanatic of electronic soundscapes, Manfred has made available a copy of the first shipment stolen and extensively tested. Rumor has it he spent the whole night with the Sledge The full test as a video with a lot of sound samples – now for you at Music Store TV!”
About the synth:
For many synthesizer enthusiasts, it is the particular interaction of the sound engine and user interface that makes a great instrument. A quick look at Sledge shows you the generous set of controls available to interact directly with the sound engine. When you touch the knobs and switches of the front panel, you will instantly be aware of the meticulous attention to detail our engineers have refined, during many decades building the best electronic keyboards.
You will experience the logical set-up of the synthesizer modules, mirroring the signal flow of a classic analogue synthesizer. But what really distinguishes any synthesizer is its sound. Fortunately, our friends at Waldorf Music have happily shared their experience and know-how on this crucial part of the Sledge Synthesizer.
Nice interview with the designer of the Sledge synth from Studiologic, getting a bit more information on the product. The synth is powered by a Waldorf synth engine.
