The wave can handle single-cycle waveforms and full-fledged samples look at the oscillator 2 settings.

The big question is whether is whether the Nord Wave will have the same timbre as the 2x. I already returned my NL3 after confirming what the majority of people complained about - it's thinness. The 2x is so popular b/c of it's underlying sound moreso than it's price. The fact that is has tube sim,...

I'm already counting my pennies Agreed. Looks really interesting. Based on the few hints at price, should have a street price ~$1500. I DO hope the 2 outputs and no visible midi through are remedied before release. Clavia tends to not include MIDI thru on most of their synths :shock: I don't mind m...

is it just me or does it look like only one osc is capable of samples, wavetables, and FM? It also only has 2 outs instead of 4, and one two slots instead of 4... I also haven't seen any audio inputs, and even if the thing can sample, it doesn't look to have a screen up to the job of editing them, ...

Thanks Carbon - exactly what we were looking for. The first modern synth I ever bought was a Nord Lead 2 - it was great to learn on. I've sold it down the road but always loved the design and playablity. I'm def considering picking this up for the sampling goodness and I love wavetable synths... Pl...

Re: waldorf microwave xt / xtk

a few questions concerning the xt/xtk -anyone know where i can find some sound clips or something of it? i was able to find sound clips of the microwave 2, i've heard that the xt is the same engine just with more knobs, is that true? The XT can make allkinds of sounds, its all in the programming - ...

For the price its decent but I found myself being more blown away by the soft version of Korg's Wavestation + M1 for around $150 as far as bang-for-the-buck goes...but that could just be because I've already got a bunch of Waldorf hardware synths :wink:

carbon11: what do you control massive with? did you get Kore? I did end up getting Kore but Massive runs just fine in standalone mode...very easy to tweak! Massive has my favorite user interface of any softsynth so far. I use my Polyevolver as keyboard controller with the host computer's trackball ...

Listen to the bassline from Thomas Dolby's "Windpower" and you'll start to get the idea :D

I'd go for the Orange Beast myself! Everyone who programs it seems to come up with completely different-sounding patches. Its certainly a bit of a chameleon in that regard. It can be a total sonic monster but, to be fair to the Microwave XT, it is capable of wonderfully delicate, swirling pads and "...
