As for the electric shock , the following is a quote from soundonsound magazines june'08 review (Paul Nagle) of Blofeld

"......and I sincerely hope the wall-wart supplied to UK buyers is different to the one I received. I've really had my fill of perching Euro connections into wobbly shaver adaptors — I thought there was some kind of law against this sort of thing!"

Sorry to dig up an old topic, but I bought a blofeld late last year, got on quite well with it for a start. I wasnt using many VST's because I was on Cubase 5VST!!!! (how old is that lol!!)

I moved up to the new cubase 5 and got a bit tangled up in all of the soft synths etc and kinda forgot about my little blofeld.

Found this thread and I've revisited it and found the awesome sounds you can make with this little beast.

So glad I've gone back to it rather than just sell it off!!

One other thng, anyone know how to initislise a patch so I can start from scratch ????

Cheers

If you go into the save options you see if you scroll through "init" just load that as its blank.

Default A vote in favour

I've had my Blofeld for 18+ months now & love it - it's really easy to tweak the sounds, the interface is really clean and simple to use.

It's not purrfect though - and it needs the latest O/S (1.15) applied. But once this is done, it's great - some really nice sounds - warm and full, but still clean.

I can't compare to much else (only a Korg Radias, and Roland JX-unit), but I'd recommend one - obviously it's a synth, but there also seems to be some space for samples too.

If in doubt, find one in a store and spend 40-mins playing - ignore the YouTube LoFi demos - that's how I ended up with mine!

Hope this helps.

Looking at the kicking teh Waldorf has received here, founded on a HUGE falsehood that somebody got an electric shock. The Blofeld is clearly best in the pack.
