Redeeming qualities: Analog gain distortion adds to the possibilities. Nice sounding filter, if a little "muddy" at times. Good MIDI spec. Mono input, stereo out.

Bad qualities: Only 4 knobs. Cutoff control steps. Works way better when triggered by midi, not audio.

Verdict: I have almost sold it several times, not because its not useful, but because the $250 or $300 its worth could get me, for example, a Microwave. Plus most synth have filters already.

Top uses (to me) Self oscillating filter modulated by S+H lfo, chunky guitars, synth sounds can be panned by lfo, velocity, or keytrack!

Waldorf Microworks wasn't only the 4-pole filterbox as shown on these pages. There was also (and a few years before the 4-pole) the Waldorf Microworks EQ-27. A stereo 7 band programmable EQ. Easy to use. 12 db range per band (24 when used mono). Info on the rare Waldorf Microworks EQ-27: http://www.till-kopper.de/eq27.html

Therefor you should change the name of the existing Waldorf Microworks item to Waldorf Microworks 4-pole.

keep on turning these knobs

This Waldorf Mini Works 4 Pole is UNBELIEVABLY KOOL!! btw, the original reviewer got the name wrong. Its not micro-works, its MINI-WORKS!! Anyway, this filter has its own character for sure. I got one cuz I have owned a Pulse (not the +) and so I know what the Waldorf filters can do. This little baby rocks!!......and I have 2 Filterbanks, both v1 & v2. I will never sell this Waldorf. Its a lot of fun to work with although somewhat complicated, the manual is short but sweet. I wish these were more readily available....cannot figure out why Waldorf stopped puttin these out. They are rare to find, but I promise you its worth finding one. You wont be dissappointed!!! AMAZING!! :}}
