What we think?

A stunning example of modern synthesizer engineering. A mind blowing collection of synthesis forms coupled with a fan-tastic UI and a fresh, interesting and unique sound which is unlike anything you've experienced before.

The Waldorf Quantum is a Hybrid Polyphonic Synthesizer that perfectly integrates the incredible sound shaping abilities of Digital Synthesis with all the warm, full sonics of an Analogue Architecture with an incredibly simple and fluid user interface.


Quantum is based around the very famous NAVE application, it features eight total voices of polyphony with each voice having four possible synthesis modes, Two analogue filters, six LFO's, six envelopes, three effects processors plus much much more.


The synthesis modes on the Quantum are very unique to this machine, they include:


  • Classic Waldorf Wavetable
  • Waveform Synthesis
  • Particle Synthesis
  • Resonator Mode

  • Waldorf are well known for their rich, glassy wavetables and complex digital synthesis algorithms, their sound always cuts through a mix, the Quantum is no different.


    The Wavetable selection is based around the 256-wave cycling wavetable from other machines in their lineage, waveform synthesis provides more analogue style waveforms, with complex folding and other modulation effects, particle synthesis provides a rich form of granular synthesis and the resonator modes provides format and speech style synthesis timbres. It can even sample and playback external sources!


    As mentioned before, Quantum features two OTA based analogue filters for super smooth dynamics and rich harmonics. Each oscillator can be routed into each filter independently for some unusual effects and tone shaping abilities. There's also a section dubbed "digital former" which provides bit crushing, downsampling and other digital effects.


    For a synthesizer this complex, Waldorf consulted with synth engineering guru Axel Hartmann, the man responsible for many classic synthesizers over the last few years including the very unusual and rare Hartmann Neuron, Arturia MatrixBrute, 20 Synth, Alesis Andromeda, Waldorf Wave, Moog Little Phatty, Arturia Origin and many more. So it's no surprise that the UI of Quantum has been designed with thought, care and attention to what exactly players and sound designers will need.


    Quantum features a highly responsive, contextually sensitive capacitive touchscreen for navigating, controlling and modulating your sound. Most of what you control is on the front panel, the touchscreen is the cherry on top that makes everything meld seamlessly into one mega powerhouse machine.


    Waldorf's Quantum is a classic in the making, an incredibly well featured and well thought out machine which brings the absolute best of Waldorfs heritage into a single, monster polysynth.
