This is an in-your-face review of the Oberheim Drumulator Audio Synthesizer (Waldorf Micro Q + Novation X-Station 25).
This was the first Gluten Free iPad Synthesizer App from 1977.
All sounds are from the new Waldorf Pulse 2, except the Kick and the HiHats.
This is the new star of analog monophonic synthesizers…the brandnew WALDORF PULSE 2.
An amazing sounding mashine with tons of good features. More than 16 modulationslots are available, 3 real analog oscillators for a rich sound, an analog multimodefilter and a very easy userinterface and 500! presets. It allows you to syncronize an older synthesizer like the Roland SH 101 or older Moog Synthesizer with its built in CV/Gate Interface via Midi. Very nice feature. And you can play with paraphonic modes up to eight voice chords.
The Waldorf Pulse is built like a tank, it´s Made in Germany.
Enough words now…just listen to the raw sound without any effects on it. Have fun and if you like it…buy one.

I got a brand new Rocket today, so… here goes!
Bass: Waldorf Rocket
Drums: Vermona DRM1, Acidlab Miami, MPC
Strings: Korg Wavestation SR
Pluck: Casio CZ3000
FX: Roland Alpha Juno 2
Vocoder: MAM VF-11
Vocoder Synth: DSI Tetra
I’m switching the Rocket between chord and mono modes over MIDI. To play chords, set the oscillator wave to sawtooth (CC #31 = 0), and the osc tune&shape knobs to max (CC #70 & #79 = 127). I’m also setting the mod wheel for some chord vibrato.
To us Nave is known for massive spaced out sounds but Nave can also make cool bass sounds.We like the underneath buzz you can add to an analog flavored bass sounds.
Waldorf Zarenbourg is a pretty, chunky, digital piano. It has a certain amount of internal sounds (physically modeled, sampled and fm synthesized). On this video, a quick run on the internal preset. Audio out goes straight into digital recorder.
Another quick run on the internal presets (Tine, Bars, Reeds, Clavi, CP Piano, FM Piano, Grand Piano…) contained into Waldorf Zarenbourg digital piano. Audio goes straight into digital recorder.
When Waldorf introduced the Zarenbourg in 2006, this piano was one of a very small minority. It had dawned on us that few contemporary instruments offered electric pianists and keyboardists that elusive quality called soul. Reduced to the essentials, this rare breed of instrument does one thing so well that it grows on the player, becoming an extension of body and mind. It has that magical touch of purism that all-in-one devices lack. So we aimed high, achieving a sound nothing short of sublime. And we conjured a look that blends the hallmarks of classic designs with a more contemporary clean and cool vibe.
Handling is intuitive, not inquisitive. No more fussing with cords for this and that; simply power up, play, and possess instantly satisfying sound for player and audience alike. Its aluminum hood offers a sturdy perch for your other favorite instrument, and its integrated speaker system can render the piggybacked device’s signal. Let your laptop roost on this tower of power, and you can control plug-ins via USB and monitor the results via the Zarenbourg’s audio input.
A short track made with the MV-8800 and Waldorf Rocket. This is rather fun than serious. Rocket test coming soon 😉

Waldorf Nave has a 4 track tape recorder in which you can cut,copy,trim,move,and stretch for precise editing as well as snapping the audio file into the ruler grid for easy editing and looping.
In this tutorial Ryan Hemeon shows how you can sample any iOS app using Audiobus to record into Audioshare and open it directly into Nave to start a new patch. He also shows a little bit about setting up your own patch and saving it.
“This is a really cool way to make patches, kind of turning Nave into a “Super Sampler”. I hope this is helpful! ”
