micrco Q vs blofeld

Postby corndogssg » Tue Jul 15, 2014 10:50 am

is the blofeld just an older version of the micro Q? do they pretty much sound the same and over lap. This site gives the Q a five star and the blo gets a four rating. so it lead me to wonder if people like the micro Q better or if they are pretty much the same synths or really what to believe. I love my blofeld, up until last week when the sound went quite, looking on the web this is do to a cheaply made part on waldorfs money saving end. it's an easy fix, still makes me mad when a company cuts corners to save a buck and ends up with a car that they have to recall several thousands of because of some bs. oh the allmighty dollar. ehhhh n e ways............ (also after ordering a kiwi technics patch editor to mainly control my kiwi 106 and jx10 i noticed it works with a micro q which is cool)

micro Q vs blofeld...................whats your opinion.

Someone said "Micro Q is similar to Blofeld but all the things said works!"

I think the new Blofeld OS got most of the bugs out though.

Micro Q has multi outs (3 stereo) and it's expandable to 75 voices which might help on multitimbral setups. No samples or filter curves though.

I went the big Q route, tough decision for me. I would go for an expanded microQ over Blofeld.

Many expert friends of mine said the microQ over the blofeld by far. Some of them said to me that with the blofeld Waldorf tried to ressamble Microwave+microQ characteristics but without their personality...
I don't know if it counts but the microQ got a IN to filter the sound (don't know if the blofeld got this too...)
