Waldorf Q+ Ruby Red w/ new ALPS encoders and OLED display

via this auction

Interestingly honest description:

"Here it is... the unicorn.

Let me be honest and say that the analog filters on the Q+ are just underwhelming. So if you are looking to buy a Q+ because of the analog - well you may be disappointed. The last downside to the analog filter use is... the Q+ can crash once in awhile. This is a known issue with the Q+ so if you use the analog filters make sure you save often.

Now here's the positive: This Q+ has 100 digital voices using dynamic voice allocation programming with then DSP code. So if you can do without the analog filters and stick with the digital filters - you get 100 voices to play with for your long drones and utter madness this synth can create. You've all seen the Jexus demos... A Waldorf Q synth is like sitting at the controls of some interdimensional spaceship.

Summer of 2017 I replaced ALL the rotary encoders with brand new Alps encoders. So the controls of this spaceship are luxuriously smooth with no skipping values at all. It's a 'brand new' experience. I replaced some but not all of the detent encoders because quite a few were beyond any kind of repair. Therefore there are no issues with any of the controls of this synth. A few dings but nothing on the face of the synth. Brand new yellow OLED display. This will ship in a road case and then packed in a box with foam."
