You can happily ignore all the wavetable synthesis stuff and just learn basic analog subtractive synthesis on it, since every oscillator have the common waveforms in addition to the wavetables.

I was kind of digging it.
But I like digital delay.

I just got a blofeld - my only complaint is I wish it had four outputs and a midi thru.
Have had it for about a week now, it's at the end of a midi chain that goes mpc>machinedrum>blofeld. This is a beast of a percussion setup.

Now that the Pulse 2 is out, I wonder if Waldorf are going to both 1) fix the Blofeld, and 2) make a successor.

I'd love to see a tabletop/rackmount style knobby synth using the Blofeld's engine but with more outputs, some inputs, more Poly, etc.

Maybe they can recycle the "Stromberg" name and use it for this "Super-Blofeld".

I'm holding out for a Pulse 2 keyboard edition. Should make for a sweet companion to Blofeld keyboard.
