Waldorf Iridium - Polyphony, FM, Wavetables, Granular

Martin St├╝rtzer

"The Waldorf Iridium is a new synthesizer from WALDORF. It brings the infinite possibilities of the Quantum synthesizer to a more portable (and much more affordable) format.

In this video I demonstrate a few features and create a patch from INIT to show the workflow. The Iridium has 16 note polyphony (Quantum has only 8) which is good for playing piano sounds and pads with very long releases.

The first patch shows the FM engine (called Kernel) with a DX7 style piano sound. In the second patch I used three Wavetable oscillators with factory Wabetables. Then I import Wavetables from the SD card and use the sample / granular engine to create a new patch using an old sample from AKAI."
