Description

With M, we musically return to our roots by bringing back the classic Microwave and "modern" Microwave II sound generation as a next-generation classic hybrid wavetable synthesizer with a 24 dB/Oct low-pass analog VCF - SSI 2144 Improved Ladder Type - with analog resonance and saturation, stereo analog VCA with panning option, and much more to explore in a user-friendly desktop format offering a wide range of unique sounds. The numerous presets - totalling 2048 sound programs (divided into 16 banks of 128 sounds each) - professionally programmed by world-renowned sound designers, also include all of Microwave's classic sound sets, such as MW1 Factory Sound Set, MW1 Soundpool 1-5, Analogue and Bassco sounds, as well as the PPG Wave 2.3 sounds cleverly converted for the original Microwave.
But the musical heart of M, as an eight-voice polyphonic, four-part multitimbral WAVE TABLE SYNTHETIZER, is two wave table oscillators with independent wave table generation modes, Classic Microwave 1 and Modern Microwave II/XT, as indicated by the red crest on its metallic blue case, which itself alludes to its illustrious Microwave heritage, meaning that the wave table oscillators behave differently in these two modes.

Two LFOs, generating a frequency-adjustable periodic waveform Rate and Shape that can be used for modulation purposes, are also always at hand. However, unlike other Waldorf synthesizers, there is no modulation matrix in the M. This is a conscious design decision to configure the M's modulation facilities directly on the corresponding display page, as a tribute to the Microwave of 1989.

Back in the present, M takes performance to a whole new level, thanks to this advanced ARP with 16 pre-selected patterns, a tuning mode, and MIDI clock sync capability. In addition, four programmable ENVELOPES allow adventurous users to manipulate sound parameters via rate or time modulations.
