Hmmm, Largo or Blofeld?

but the largo might be cheaper

largo is still very very cool

I'd go for Blofeld for the knobs. Not many, but it's better than none. But the Largo would be useful to carry around on the laptop.

Ah well. Both then... :D

Still, the GUI looks cool. No audio demos yet (not that I can find, anyway).

Well, assuming it sounds as it should and is appropriately priced, sign me up. :)

Edit: The internet says $250. Not sure where the person got the price from, but that sounds about right. I'd have to at least hear some audio demos first.

I'm disappointed that this only has the Q alt waves rather than also including the microwave II wavetables...

At least it's not a resource hog, this would probably run nicely on a netbook or similar:

System Requirements
Windows

* Windows XP or better
* Intel Pentium 3, 1 GHz or better
* AMD Athlon, 800 MHz or better
* 64 MB free RAM
* VST 2.0 compatible host software that supports virtual instruments, such as Cubase VST 5.0 or higher, Cubase SX/SL, Nuendo 1.5 or better
* PC equipped according to the specifications of the VST host software

But 250 $ sound a bit expensive, considering what else is out there....

Very cool. But I'd prefer the Blofeld. Actually saw it for the first time today. Sadly it wasn't hooked up, and I was in a hurry, but it felt great! :D

so when they say same synth engine, does that mean it sounds the same as the blofeld? can it share patches, etc? sorry for the noob question.

Waldorf has confirmed the MWII tables will be in the Largo.

Really? That GREAT NEWS.

The specs list on the website just mentioned the Q alt wavetables.

Provocative.

yeah, it looks like the ONLY feature this doesn't have that the blofeld does is the PPG modeled filter, and in email correspondence with a guy at waldorf he implied that the PPG filter might be brought in with an update, it just wouldn't be there at 1.0

Please to add to Blofeld. Thx.

How would you draw LFO waveforms on the blofeld?
