More Sounds From Waldorf Rocket

Beta test sound demo - latest      01/03/13

Details on the new, affordable Waldorf Rocket synth continue to roll out in the form of audio demos. This one from Jürgen Driessen uses Rocket sounds only, though enhanced with a bit of DAW - reminds me a bit of Leftfield..

We're hoping to see some Rocket action up close when we rush to visit the Wladorf booth at next months Musik Messe.

But just for now we'll have to stick with the teasers and this list of features. Oh, and the fact that Axel Hartmann had something to do with the design of the panel - possibly. If your German is up to much, our friends over at had one on their weekly podcast. Unfortunately mine isn't..
