Waldorf X-Pole Dual Analog Filter

via this auction

"A friend of mine bought this when it was new, I'm the second owner. The story he got from the sales guy was that this particular one was a prototype model that the sales guy picked up from Waldorf at the end of the NAMM show it debuted at. I doubt the story since there is a serial number and not a prototype plate or anything, but I do know it's super rare and I've personally never seen another one in anyone elses studio or for sale. This unit has been in my possession since 2001/2002 and has been racked in my smoke free studio. Prior to that it was in a rack in my friends smoke free studio and mostly unused.

It's a super versatile stereo filter and every parameter can be controlled and tweaked via midi. Super interesting on drum loops and patterns, synths and also on guitars. The manual has suggestions for guitar usage, so I gave it a shot and was impressed."
