Introducing the Waldorf Quantum 8-Voice Hybrid Polysynth, the flagship synth that takes sound production to the next level. Meticulously designed with enormous sound design capabilities, this hybrid polyphonic synthesizer combines the best of both worlds with the use of three digital oscillators and two analogue filters, allowing you to produce a dynamic and unique sound.
At the heart of the Quantum lies a responsive touch display, which allows you to adjust certain parameters with exceptional visual detail and provides a display for the features of your sound. With the Waldorf Quantum, you can unleash your creativity to create the sounds you never thought you could.
Introducing Version 2.0, the last free firmware for Quantum that is now available. Version 2.0 features the new Vision 4 Instruments Kernel synthesis engine, which hugely expands the capabilities above and beyond the four synthesis engines you already get when Quantum ships. Along with Wavetable, Waveform, Resonator, and Particle, Kernel adds more scope for sound design than ever before.
A legacy of incredible innovation, Waldorf is proud to announce a new chapter in their tradition of designing high-end ground-breaking synthesizers. Waldorf’s famous wavetable technology gave the synthesizer a powerful and beating heart. While the digital oscillators coupled with the enormous power and the simplicity of the analogue filters have led the industry towards a revolution, setting the standard since the 1980s.
The Waldorf Quantum Polysynth offers a range of control for sound design, allowing you to utilise the power of digital and analogue synthesis to create futuristic sounds. Featuring eight voices with speech and spectrum functionality, you can simultaneously play several notes, adding incredible depth and character to your sound. At the core are three digital oscillators that can run one of four synthesis algorithms independently of one another.
With the highly-responsive touch screen, you can change the shape and character of the waveform with each oscillator. The ‘particle mode’ allows for granular synthesis and samples, and you also have the option of adding samples and re-samples. The ‘resonator mode’ offers you plucky tones and breathy tones. With the ability to add a different synthesis algorithm on each oscillator, the Waldorf offers an endless supply of sound creation, both simple and complex.
The Quantum features three envelopes on the front panel and another three in the software, with a range of high-quality presets ready for you to get started. With the advanced arpeggiator, multistage envelope, and six LFOs, the Waldorf Quantum offers infinite possibilities in sound production.
Designed by synth design guru Axel Hartmann, the Waldorf Quantum features two USB ports for host device and MIDI control, stereo in for sampling, stereo out, auxiliary out, pedal inputs, SD card slot, classic MIDI In/Out/Thru, and a responsive touch display for parameter adjustment.
In summary, the Waldorf Quantum 8-Voice Hybrid Polysynth is a revolutionary synthesizer that offers unparalleled sound design capabilities, combining digital and analogue synthesis to create futuristic sounds. With the advanced features and endless possibilities, the Quantum is a world waiting to be explored.
