M-Wavetable Synthesizer

With M we are musically returning to our roots by bringing back classic Microwave and modern Microwave II tone generation as a new generation classic hybrid wavetable synthesizer with an analogue lowpass 24 dB Oct VCF SSI 2144 Improved Ladder Type with resonance and analogue saturation feature true stereo analogue VCA with panning option and much more to explore in a desktop friendly form factor featuring a wide range of unique sounds. Plentiful presets totalling 2 048 sound programs divided into 16 banks each with 128 sounds professionally programmed by world renowned sound designers also include all of the classic Microwave sound sets such as MW1 Factory Sound Set MW1 Soundpool 1 5 the fat sounding Analogue and Bassco as well as PPG Wave 2.3 sounds cleverly converted for the original Microwave. Moreover it also features freshly programmed sounds utilising Ms myriad new features from true hard Sync when working in its Modern Microwave II XT mode to the ARP arpeggiator and MIDI syncable global LFO Low Frequency Oscillator .

But beating at Ms musical heart as an eight voice polyphonic four part multitimbral WAVETABLE SYNTHESIZER as boldly blazoned in red across its full metal blue coloured casing itself hinting at its illustrious Microwave heritage are two wavetable oscillators with independent wavetable generating Classic Microwave 1 and Modern Microwave II XT modes meaning that the wavetable oscillators behave differently in both of those modes accessible by pressing the Mode button beside the helpful high resolution graphic display with four endless encoders for yet more hands on control . Consequently there is no hard Sync or ring modulation available in the Classic Microwave I mode where 16 bit wavetables are bit reduced to 8 bit and a 240 kHz non anti aliased sample rate is offered whereas the Modern Microwave II XT mode offers a 40 kHz sample rate with band limited wavetables although both oscillators OSC 1 and OSC 2 offer the same panel parameters.

Two LFOs are generating a periodic waveform with adjustable frequency 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 M. Making a conscious design decision to set up Ms modulation facilities directly on the corresponding display page to paying tribute to the 1989 vintage Microwave.

Back in the here and now M takes performance to a whole new level thanks to that advanced ARP with 16 preset patterns chord mode and an ability to synchronise to MIDI clock. Furthermore four programmable ENVELOPES allow adventurous users to manipulate sound parameters via rate or timed modulations.

Musically making a connection to the outside world is important to any synthesizer so M offers six rear panel positioned stereo analogue outputs arranged as MAIN OUT L Mono and R and AUX OUT A B C and D the latter of which can be used to route each of the four Multi multitimbral parts to different outputs if desired; a stereo headphone output with an associated Volume knob in addition to the topside Master Volume knob ; 5 pin MIDI IN OUT and THRU DIN connectors complimented by a USB 2.0 MIDI port for computer connection to transmit and receive MIDI data ; an SD Card slot for updating Ms firmware importing saving sound patches and importing saving M specific data such as user wavetables ; and last but not least a Kensington® compatible security lock slot.
