Nice and little but powerfull Synth

Iam owning the Blofeld since it came out back in 2008 and i think the featureset is still holding up, specially at its pricepoint.
Its packed with 3 OSC's , 2 multimode Filters wich can be used in parallel or serial mode, a bunch of ADSR envelops + LFO's and a huge MODmatrix. If you dive deep into its synthesis options, with the Wavetables (2 of the OSC's have them), modifiers etc., the possibilities are almost endless.
But the Blofeld is not just advanced Users, because with the LCD Display it provides a very good Feedback for beginners that want to learn how to program a Synth.
The range of sounds is huge, from the standard analog style subtractive bass to complex wavetable pads, its all in there.
One downside of its engine are maybe the Effects, they are mediocre at best.

The buildquality is decent, metal case and encoder caps. The encoder are still working good here after 6 years of use. Only issue is that get noise from the PC on the Outputs if i connect it via USB.

All in all its a nice Desktopsynth, that i recommended.

Affordable synthesizer with loads of features

The waldorf blofeld tabletop synthesizer is a good quality machine. It looks good, it feels good, and it's really powerful for such a low price. It's packed with features, such as wavetables, frequency modulation, many different envelope types, and a mod matrix.

While you can make some really amazing sounds with the blofeld, it can be a bit difficult to use if you're not into browsing menus. There are only a few knobs to use, so you often need to navigate using the screen. While it's not my favourite way of doing things, it's still quite comfortable with the blofeld, and I find a lot easier than my other small synthesizers with little lcd screens and menus.

Overall blofeld is an amazing synthesizer for the price. It surely is a lot of fun, even though the editing can be a bit slow compared to synths with loads of knobs. Those, however, are usually much more expensive.
