my Q with os 1.18 is very stable, never crashed. Not sure what version of the OS Jan has but if its less than 1.12 Jan, you should update.

Updating the OS on waldorf gear is as easy as a download from their website or a free disk from your distributor (they might make you pay a couple bucks shipping). Unlike other big name companies, you don't have to buy a new ROM and ship the item back to have it installed, etc.

Realize that waldorf are very dedicated engineers, with a long synth creation history, and that a product as deep as the Q takes a lot of Research and Development time. The hardware is completely done, and the core of the sound software is finished, and users are crying out for the product, so they release it. Updates are quick and painless to install, so more features can be added later, and they can start making back enough money to keep eating...

If you own a Q Jan, there are many people in the Waldorf Forum (subscribe via the waldorf website) with Q's who would love to help you solve your problem. If you do not, then please don't leave any more negative reviews.

-Very Please Q owner (did I mention it sounds *amazing*?)

Virus vs. Q. Both are amazing synths. The Q has nicer sounding oscillators than the virus, the Virus has a slightly better LPF. The Virus has been around and the OS is done, probably very little will change with it. The Q's specs are very close to the Virus, but there is still more stuff coming.

I've got a VirusB (rack) here, and a blue Waldorf Q keyboard. If you're looking for the keyboard version, there really is no comparison, the Waldorf Q-keys has 58 knobs and the Virus keyboard much less, and they didn't spread the knobs out very well, the keyboard version is just a virus with keys grafted on. Get the Q, as it has an extremely nice keyboard (very responsive, as someone else mentioned, made by fatar), and more knobs (that are infinite spin!) Add a VirusB rack later, and your problem is solved...

this synth would be a good synth only if you have the money to invest into something that is not a finished product. it's like you are buying something that is not really there. Don't get me wrong, this synth is capable of some amazing timbre. I bought mine like the rest of them and have sold mine because it gets me sick and tire of reading "not available" messages. i'll stick with my XT 30 voices...it's there and it works....

The ealdorf Q is a analog modeling like jp 8000/supernova and others.It has 3 oscillators with (fm/pwm/pitch mod waves : saw/pulse/sinus/tri + 2 alt waves)2 ring mods and a noise gen.sync between osc 2 and 3.2 filters with 12/24/36/48 dB low/high/band/notch and comb filter.filter has fm/resonance/cutoff freq with owm mod.2 effect processor(chorus/phaser/flanger/reverb ( not it)/distortion/delay.16 mod matrix arpeggiator step seqeuncer.It can sound like memorymoog and oberheim matrix 12 and many others.If you are to analog and digital synthesizer sounds so Q it is you going to have.

The Q absolutely blows away all other analogue modelling synths! The supernova doesn't hold a candle to it. The JP8000 and Yamaha AN1-x are not in its league. Check it out for yourself to hear a monster instrument that will shock you with analogue punch and organic warmth. It is a little expensive - I paid $3000 out the door for my blue 16 voice - but not as bad as the list price may lead you to believe.
