About the Waldorf Wave

The Waldorf Wave premiered in the early 90s as the most advanced wavetable synthesizer to date. Despite its deep synthesis features, it was remarkably easy to use with its generous offering of knobs, buttons and faders to tweak just about every parameter it had to offer. A truly digital instrument, it still featured a set of analog filters that gave it a warmer sound than what is normally associated with Wavetable instruments. And people loved it. It was found in many well-funded studios of the era, since the initial price was close to $10,000.
