Waldorf Iridium Synthesizer In-Depth Review


In his latest loopop video, synthesist Ziv Eliraz takes an in-depth look at the Waldorf Iridium synthesizer.

The Waldorf Iridium synthesizer is a new desktop synth design that shares many of the features of Waldorf’s flagship Quantum synthesizer. The Iridium offers twice the polyphony of the Quantum, but uses digital filters vs the Quantum’s analog filters.

The Waldorf Iridium is a 16-voice duo-timbral polyphonic synthesizer. Each voice features three oscillators, which can be any of five different oscillator types, dual stereo digital filters and a wide range of performance controls.
