Quantum preset list was created by Jfish930
Hello All,

I am considering purchasing a Quantum. I looked at the online manual, but can’t seem to find a list of factory presets anywhere.

Can someone help?

I think there is no list. And as most users did their v2.0 update with the included sounds themself, the new patches delivered with the v2.0 firmware are not going to predefined patch numbers.

Here a list of the Don Solaris patches you get with the v2.0 update. The patch numbers are just pointing to where the authour saved them, not where you import them to on a Quantum:

And there are the many, many pre v2.0 patches as well.

But don't judge a synth my the name of its preset or the presets themself. There is no "Jump" preset. But it is so easy to get this famous sound from the Waldorf Quantum with just one oscillator using the Kernel unison function.

Thank you so much for your reply Qwave. Of course my main motivation for possibly purchasing a Quantum is to create my own sounds, but I often use presets to get ideas or as a starting point in which to edit sounds.

Sorry but I still don’t understand. If the presets have no specified number, how do I “find” the ones you listed as well as all the others?

Thanks again for your help!

The original factory sound (pre 2.0) had been on specified numbers. I have no such list available. The v2.0 sounds are delivered as download to import into the updated Quantums by the user. And while importing a folder of sounds (sorted by creator name like my list posted) you, the Quantum user decide where to store them too. All unused patch locations are not existing. This is a different concept like used o the Blofeld where you had 1024 (?) memory locations existing from day one, no matter if they contained a sound or not. On the Quantum only existing sounds are seen with the location numbers. And as you might end up with 9999 patches, you can find them by several layers of filters like creator names or pre or self defined search names or describing tags.
There is no factory 2.0 installed sound list available to me, as I bought my Quantum over a year ago. And version 2.0 was released just a little more than 2 weeks ago. So there are not many factory 2.0 preinstalled Quantums out yet.

The page 20 of the Waldorf Quantum v2.0 manual is very informative on how to find, sort etc. sounds. And tells you all you need to know about what the Quantum is able to do.

Thanks so much Qwave! I did check out the manual but only glimpsed through it looking for a sound list.

Your recommendation of page 20, led me to finding this which is exactly what I was seeking:

You can filter sounds by attributes, banks, and authors. Use the three silver endless knobs to the left of the display. When set to All you have access to all existing sounds.

Now, my only hesitation regarding the Quantum is how intuitive is it and will the learning curve be overwhelmingly complex.?

Thanks again!

The Quantum is easy to use for the basic things. Using the rather unique or seldom seen before functions like Grain Synthesis or the new v2.0 FM Kernel sections is something for people really getting a special sound. This is not something you will learn in a day. But the VA oscillators and the classic Waldorf wavetable oscillators, the filters and all the whole modulation concept is well done. And you will not dive deep into menu structures in the display. It is mostly the front panel knobs. And the encoders around the display change from section to section their functions, but this is well labeled on the display.
So all in all the Quantum is user friendly. But it also got plenty parameters you will see for the first time ever on some of the oscillator modes. But you don't have to use them, if you not like to.

But to learn every possible parameter and when to change a certain parameter to get to the intended sound is rather complex, if you dive into grain, resonator and FM Kernel oscillator modes. But on the other hand, even without using these functions, the Quantum is a great synth.

It is definitely not a synth for beginners (unless you use the presets only). And soundwise it is a full professional synth.
