Waldorf Blofeld

Waldorf Blofeld
VA synthesizer

My Blofeld I acquired after that compared what is available out there on the market today. I came to the conclusion that Blofeld was one of the most cost effective synthesizers available on the market today.
It can be broadly comparable to the Waldorf Q but it has a bit more “digital” character.
