Blofeld as a Drum Module, new SoundSet from Waldorf

Postby pjablon » Fri Nov 22, 2013 6:00 pm

Hi everybody.
I have a pleasure to present you the "Attack" sound-set for Waldorf Blofeld.

It is a set of 128 drum and percussion sounds, mainly modelled analogue drums, FM noises and Wavetable-generated sounds. It comes with 145 drum oriented samples for "sample & synthesis" fun and 7 multi-setups that work as a drum-sets.

It turns Blofeld into drum module with very advanced engine. Similar to the Tempest (VA + Samples) and in some respects even better (Wavetables, user samples, higher polyphony).

Multi-setups are MIDI mapped and ready for action.
Installation, MIDI implementation and the basis of drum synthesis is nicely laid out in the included manual.

Check this little demo:
Watch on youtube.com


The sound-set is available on Waldorf webpage:

Nord Beat 2 to be precise. It is an OKish sequencer. I like the fact that step buttons take as much space as possible and that it can sequence velocity in a smart way.
Also that you can edit different pattern than currently playing, and switch when you finish, is nice.
Other than that it's typical Nord: "We assume that you are a moron, so we don't give you any advanced options so you won't get confused"
The major fail is a lack of real time recording in the pad mode. It renders pads virtually useless.
No CC automation that would be sweet for Blofeld is sad.

who knew Nord was run by apple? :lol:
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

I bet this would pair pretty well and offer some more advanced options

Can anyone who has used the old attack VST/AU and the Blofeld soundset comment on similarity or differences?
Is it just functioning as a rompler with cut off and envelope params or is it actually synthesizing like the original virtual drum machine?
I've used the Attack VST/AU on many of my songs in the past.
I love how it fills a spot between vintage drum machines and modern ones. There are certain sounds I have coaxed out of that plugin that I have never been able to replicate with an MPC, Machinedrum or any Roland or Korg vintage piece.

I'd been looking in to picking up a Blofeld to add some non-analog sounds to my studio. If this Attack soundset is even 90% of the plugin then I'm getting my wallet out.
