Virtual analog, wavetable, and sample-based oscillators combine for more musical opportunity.

The 49-key Blofeld keyboard is set apart by its user-friendly flexibility when it comes to sample memory. It enables the player to import his or her own sample libraries for near limitless sonic capabilities. As you can imagine, this feature opens up new creative pallets for the musician. This semi-weighted Waldorf keyboard has a very nice professional feel with velocity and aftertouch that players will quickly appreciate after only a few minutes of tickling the plastic ivories. Many of the award-winning features of the current Blofeld module also carry-over into this electronic keyboard. You still get a virtual-analog synthesis and classic wavetables, 60 megabytes of sample memory, pitchblend and modulation wheels, sustain pedal connection, a large graphic display, countless oscillator and filter modulations, endless stainless steel rotaries, and an internal power supply-all in a nice, sleek metal enclosure.

You also get Spectre, a free tool for creating and transferring sample content for Waldorf Blofeld Module with License SL upgrade installed and Waldorf Blofeld Keyboard (License SL not required for Keyboard). This is NOT a patch editor. Downloand the PC or Mac version and manual here:
