Launch of Waldorf Largo

Waldorf have released Largo, their first ever software instrument. It’s a synthesizer that the developers say features the same kinds of sounds as the Blofeld and Q hardware synths, giving the user a diverse sonic palette, from complex pads to screaming leads.

Many producers and synthesizer enthusiasts asked for a full-blown Waldorf Synthesizer for their virtual rack. So have I, and now  Largo. Largo is the first pure software synthesizer with Waldorf DNA. And again – it is the cutting edge sound that makes the big difference.

Largo has three oscillators with a variety of waveforms that include shapes from the PPG and Wave hardware synths. Two multi-mode filters can be used in parallel or series, and each has a drive section and can self-oscillate. There are three LFOs, one of which has a step sequencer-style waveshape arpeggiator generator, and there’s a selection of effects, including chorus, flanger, phaser, overdrive and delay. Largo runs as a plug-in inside VST and Audio Units hosts.

Also new from Waldorf is the Blofeld Keyboard, a version of their Blofeld desktop synthesizer in keyboard form. It’s got 49 semi-weighted keys, a USB port for connection to a computer, and MIDI input and output. Other keyboard-only features include pitch-bend and modulation wheels, octave up and down buttons, an assignable button marked ‘free’, and a sustain pedal input.
