Synths for sale – Waldorf Microwave I and microQ

Due to time constraints, I decided to sell some of my classic synth gear.

This was my very first true synthesizer, the (in)famous Waldorf Microwave I. Unfortunately the corners have been damaged by the rack mount screws, which already was the case when I bought the device, which was the demo device at Musik-Service Aschaffenburg. The backlight of the display is fully operational, but the display appears a bit dark on the picture due to some underexposure.

I fired it up these days, and was still impressed by its sound. The envelopes are really fast, dedicating the device for lead, bass, and drum sounds. Thanks to its analogue filters, pads sound great as well. Contemporary synths can do much more than the Microwave, but this device is an easy to program and use workhorse with an absolutely individual sound.

The Digitech Studio Quad is a four in four out multi effects processor. The inputs can be routed to the outputs individually. In between, several effects can be applied. I used this device for some delay or a little reverb for the Microwave and as a digital rotary speaker (aka Leslie) for my old Viscount D9 organ (already sold).

The Waldorf microQ more or less is the grandson of the Microwave, though its sound architecture is different. It’s similar to its successor, the Waldorf Blofeld, but AFAIK the Blofeld does not provide drum maps.

I prefer shipping within Germany. For other destinations, the price needs adjustment due to the extra traffic.
