WALDORF FINDS A PULSE ON THE 1990s

By

Waldorf Pulse 2

 

Following on from its Rocket synth, Waldorf has brought out another cool, compact hardware synthesiser with the Pulse 2 Analogue Synthesiser, designed to recreate those 1990s electronic music sounds that have – apparently – become retro and much sought-after. Spoiler alert, we’re about to get synth-geeky. The Pulse 2 has three analogue oscillators with a VCF (VoltageControlled Filter), 12dB Highpass and Bandpass modes in addition to 24dB/12dB Lowpass for strengthened sound-sculpting flexibility, an added analogue Filter FM, two Overdrive circuits, and Ring Modulation from OSC 3, together with Paraphonic and Unison modes allowing up to eight-voice chords. Pulse 2 is housed in a sturdy metal desktop casing with a 128×64-character backlit LCD and eight stainless steel knobs to navigate through the parameter matrix. Connectivity is MIDI In, MIDI Out, Ext In (external analogue signal input), line OUT, and headphone output, CV Out (supporting both the V/octave and Hz/V standards) and Gate Out (V-Trigger- and S-Trigger-compatible), allowing for older (or newer) synths to be connected to the Pulse 2 and mirror MIDI information. Other notable features include an Alternating Pulsewidth Modulation mode, an XOR Osc mode, noise generator, Pulsewidth modulation and hard Sync. Believe it or not, more info is at www.waldorf-music.info
