This one appears to have sold for $18,948.66. Soviet Space Child spotted it. Just capturing the pics in this post. The video in the listing was previously posted here. What's interesting is this appears to be a smooth coat vs Nextel. I think this one is Nextel. It's hard to tell in the image.

From the listing:

"Also available is the new, expanded, flawless software system 1.092 , officially accepted from Waldorf. More information is available on the Waldorf Wave site from Till Kopper.

you will not find anywhere in better shape Wave

The Waldorf Wave is unquestionably the highlight of synthesizer history - a milestone in design from creator Axel Hartmann. Legendary in history, unique in design, mammoth in sound and size. 20 years after its creation, the Waldorf Wave is still timelessly stunning.

As far as the Wave's sound is concerned - words are not enough. Digital meets analogue in wavetable synthesis of the highest level! The inspiration that comes working with the Wave will expand your musical creative world. Sound design is not at all limited and analytical as the Microwave 1 was; the 16-voice sound is intuative, spontaneous, vivid, uncomplicated, and fun! The analogue filters offer a special touch of fullness. No plug-in or hardware can compare!

With this synth you can really build your wavetables with a lot of features and control. And the filters are analog. This one has 32 voices, and all voices present ."

  1. Well. I could have had this instead of every piece of equipment in my apartment. Take away the collectability quotient and does it produce sound that is worth that much money?
