Analog/Digital Hybrid

The Waldorf Quantum Polysynth offers a range of control for sound design, allowing you to unleash your creativity to create the sounds you never thought you could. The Polysynth allows you to utilise the power of digital and analog synthesis to create futuristic sounds.

Sound Design

The Waldorf Quantum is an 8 voice, multi-timbral polyphonic synthsiser offering huge synthesis capability. It offers a range of controls for creating sounds. It features 8 voices with speech and spectrum functionality built-in. At the core are 3 digital oscillators that can run 1 of 4 synthesis algorithms independently of one another. They first algorithm is wavetable synthesis, which allows you sweep through wavetables to create sound. The second is waveform mode. This offers all your traditional subtractive waves such as sine and square wave. With each oscillator you can change the shape of the waveform and warp it by using the highly-responsive touch screen. Particle mode allows you for granular synthesis and samples. You can also put samples in and re-sample. The final mode is resonanator. This offers you plucky tones and breathy tones. With the ability to add a different synthesis algorithm on each oscillator, the Waldorf offers an endless supply of sound creation, both simple and complex. Additionally, the Waldorf Quantum also features 3envelopes on the front panel, and another 3 in the software. The Quantum features a range of high-quality presets for you to get started with.

Modulation & Effects

The Quantum offers a range of modulation capabilities and effects. On the front panel there are controls for 3 LFOs. However, there are another 3 LFOs in the software which can be found in the software through the touch screen. There are 6 LFOs per 8 voice layer, allowing for a range of possibilities. The Quantum also features on-board effects, allowing you to spice up your sounds. Additionally, the Quantum synthesiser features 2 analog low-pass filter per voice for shaping and moulding sounds.
