The Blofeld Desktop Synth Module by Waldorf features Waldorf's legendary Analogue Modelling Technology and 60 MB of onboard sample memory. That kind of built-in storage allows you to import your own selection of samples and manipulate them using the Blofeld, 16-part multi-timbral virtual-analogue synthesis engine. You'll also be able to load and play Micro Q sounds and it comes bundled with Spectre, a free tool for creating and transferring sample content.
