Looks incredible but sounds thin. Disappointing. Price performance ratio is truly awful. Does not sound too different than a poorly programmed Yamaha SY77 . But again, the most beautiful looking synthesizer for the last decade.

Truly unique layout and controls. Much more wideness and depth in the sound than all the other machines from Waldorf. The MW XT has more features but sounds thinner, harder and flat in comparison(who can HEAR the number of features??).

Every MW1 User´s dream...

Thin sounding digital synth. I don't like the looks either. Nice bleeps though...

Just the Ferrari of synthesizers. While there have been other "waves." This sucker is brute power. In addition to being an incredibly sexy subtractive and wavetable synth, it is also an indispensable tool for sound creation in my studio. My K2000. K5000 and xpander all have attacked resynthesis after using the Wave to analyze a sample of my intent.

The manual composes 25% of the total page volume of the manuals of a 50+ synthesizer collection. I think this qualifies as deep. It might cost you your wife, and it will treat you like any other mistress, but the experience is worth it......

My favourite synth and it's not troublesome or buggy as many people have made out.

Waldorf have had a reputation for releasing unfinished products. The original Microwave was known to be quite buggy for some time after it's inital launch, and likewise the XT and Q. But all their products mature over time, and the Wave is no exception.

I bought one of the last Waves, and it's been trouble free so far.

My only complaint is that the OS has to be loaded from floppy as there is no prom chip inside the machine....

Otherwise, it's definitely the best synth ever. The editing is great, the sounds are fantastic, and the filter is very smooth.

A classic that will be hard to beat.
