Rare Waldorf Microwave 1 *limited edition* Mean Green Machine SN 28 9433363

via this auction

"This is your chance to own the very limited edition Waldorf Microwave 1 "Mean Green Machine" with original certificate of authenticity.

The last 99 Microwaves manufactured by Waldorf were released as this special edition Mean Green Machine. Running OS version 2.0, this was the latest and greatest of the Waldorf Microwave 1 models. This unit has been fully tested and sounds wonderful with its warm Curtis 3387 analog filters. As you can see by the certificate, this particular unit is number 28 of 99.

The Waldorf Microwave is an 8-voice wavetable synthesizer with 8 analog filters and amplifiers. The 8 voices can be used in multimode where individual MIDI channels can be assigned to different sounds, and has 4 individual outputs as well as a stereo outputs. Wolfgang Palm (of PPG fame) developed the custom ASIC (Wavetable chip) used in the Microwave. This is wavetable synthesis at its best with 2 oscillators, analog 24db LP filter, analog amplifiers with panning, 4 envelopes, 2 LFOs, and extremely flexible modulation routings.

As you can see in the pictures, this unit has a small scratch above the LCD, and, as is typical with the Nextel paint used by Waldorf, some minor paint wear along the top and bottom edges where the unit was installed in a rack."
