The Blofeld Keyboard by Waldorf builds upon their award-winning, desktop synth module by adding 49 professional-quality, semi-weighted keys with velocity and after-touch, plus 60 MB of sample RAM. With that kind of onboard memory you can import your own selection of samples and manipulate them using the legendary, Blofeld 16-part multi-timbral virtual-analogue synthesis engine.

It also has 25 voice polyphony, over 1000 factory patches and a programmable 16-step arpeggiator sure to excite and energise your audience. But things don't end there; the Blofeld keyboard also features an on-board effects section and the classic Microwave II/XT/XTk wavetables.

Add that to its all-metal black enclosure, stainless steel rotaries, pitchbend and modulation wheels, large graphic LED display and multiple oscillator and filter modulations and you'Voe just scored yourself what is destined to become another Waldorf classic.
