Waldorf Micro-Q

via this auction via noisebug
"the microq's synthesis architecture and sound comes directly from the waldorf q synthesizer and was packed into an nice 2u rack housing. still the microq is easy to program with its editing matrix (some users already may know a similar editing surface from the waldorf pulse synthesizer). this allows you to edit nearly most of the sound engine parameters directly on the surface of this little beast without being in need of activating menus.

not only the expensive sound of the waldorf q was implemented: also the powerful arpeggiator and the more than useful drum map can be found in the waldorf microq, too.

it's time to get maximum quality sound for a minimum amount of money!
