New Synth Coming From Waldorf, and It's Not the Quantum

Meet the Waldorf STVC.

The body is similar to the Blofeld and it appears to be a solo, string, and vocoder synthesizer with effects. The string sections is likely based on the Streichfett. Curious if the solo section is based on the Rocket. If you click on the bottom image it's blurry but you can make out the Solo, String, Vocoder, and Effects sections. This actually looks pretty cool, in the more of a focused instrument vs. overwhelmingly programmable synthesizer sense. Sometimes less can more. It should be interesting at least.

Details sure to follow.

Update: from a reliable source: "Solo Section is as it was in Streichfett. No relation to Rocket." And confirmed on B&H. Price is $899 US. Additional pics added below.

Update1: Images replaced with higher res ones. Click on them for details. Also I have conformation this is a Streichfett with Vocoder in Blofeld KB housing.

Fingers crossed for a desktop version that can sit on top of my Blofeld keyboard. :)


  1. Solo, strings, effects look to be direct copy of the Streichfett.

  2. Including horrible aliasing?
