Based on the PowerCore only Waldorf Decoda, the new Lector is a 100 band native vocoder plug-in with built in synth generator for use as the carrier. It can also be used with separate carrier and modulator signals using VST or AU with side chain function.

This sounded pretty good to my ears and was capable of some pretty unusual and ethereal sounds as well as the usual talking robot stuff.

Available in a couple of months (June 2011) for around €249 Euros

This sounds good but I've been burned before by Waldorf. Largo sounds amazing but try running it in the 64 bit versions of Sonar and it becomes unusable.

I really love Waldorf synths, but the company is way behind the curve in certain aspects of customer support. There's still no librarian or wavetable editor for the 1000-patch Blofeld, for instance, and they're spending their time developing other products. Of course they need to make money, but it could be argued that they'd make more on existing products if they developed a reputation for good support.

250 eur for old tech repacked says a lot about the "new" Waldorf on it's own . Elitist Complex maybe ?
