Waldorf has announced the release of Analog Voltage, a soundset by Don Solaris for the Blofeld synthesizer.
Originally started as quiz game on one musical forum in which users were required to guess which sounds originated from the Blofeld and which from Juno 60. Sounds were carefully programmed into Blofeld to match Juno 60 as close as possible. Result: about 50% of people couldn’t tell one from another. Encouraged by that, Solaris went one step further, pulling out his old vintage analog synths off the storage area and going for the hard work of measuring the behavior, parameter and modulation ranges, etc of originals and then programming those as close as possible into Blofeld.
Source units featured: Juno 60, JX-3P, MKS-50, MonoPoly, Pro One, Prophet 5, Jupiter 8, OB-X and some others. Hence the title, Analog Voltage. The set consists of 128 patches of which 60 are analog synth style patches, 35 analog bass patches and 33 range from ambient, classic FM to special FX.
The soundset is available for purchase for 30 EUR.
