"If you're here, you probably know what this discontinued, quintessential, and amazing piece of gear can do.

The Microwave XT had 3 versions of it released, this being the 10- voice version (more than enough for the typical, and even the extensive user), and the last one released in between the 90's and the early 2000's (in the widely known neon orange vs it's older brick orange colored counterpart).

It is a powerful polyphonic wavetable synthesizer that is still regarded today as a holy grail in its own right for its lo-fi tones/aliasing sounds, unique timbres, and ethereal shimmers, all thanks to the processing through its vintage Waldorf chips; setting it aside from the lacking character of wavetable VSTs.

Despite it being known for how adept it is at ambient and drone sounds, it has an arpeggiator and on-board effects that make it plenty versatile for making bass-lines, synth sequences, multi-layering, and altogether fun to experiment with its capabilities.

Aside from the two damaged knobs (pictured in the images provided, in the condition I received the unit in, and can be easily exchanged through ebay), everything else about it is in immaculate condition including it's sonic capability, functionality/stability, and performance."
