"Voodoo economics" is a Ferris Bueller reference. One of the crosses to the class room has the teacher saying the phrase, I assume he was talking about Reaganomics (president Reagan's economics)

I looked up the store you mentioned and got their retail price and converted it to aud for a ballpark price for retail here in Australia.

That's around $4118 AUD.... Australian retail will round up to 4.5k...

I'm extremely excited about his. Waldorf are one of my favorite. Have been waiting for something big from Waldorf for ages now. Have always wanted a microwave xt. Think this could hit the spot nicely. I'll have to wait till around NAMM 2018 before I can commit.

I want more news on the quantum so badly... It hurts

Hmm, that's a little more than the last car I bought, but doable, heheh. I paid 3k for my MWXTk in 2000, taking into account inflation, it's about the same for the Quantum. I have a better job now also ;)

From what I have seen and heard, the Quantum is what I was hoping the Blofeld would be; a true successor to the Microwave series. I use my Blofeld all the time, but despite it's abilities I can't pull out of it a Microwave patch. That said I haven't gone to town with my recently acquired SL enhancements.

Waldorf do have a history of incomplete OS's and missing features, like with the Pulse2's FX slot. With that, I was surprised that there was even an FX slot on it to start with, so when it was nonfunctional, although disappointing wasn't a big deal. I explain it to myself as a feature they should have kept as a second-run 'new feature' if they got it to work. I know why the MW2/XT never was fully fixed and it was unfortunate what happened but unavoidable at the time I feel. The electronic instrument landscape was levelled by the explosion of the pc laptop DAW pretty much. Drum machines and samplers are only just starting to come back now. Roland(/Boss) have had both the entire time, yeah. I'm very sick of the Roland drum sound now after 3 of their machines (they don't last long) and the MV-8000 is a slow and lumbering beast when it comes to programming and editing.

I have toyed with the idea of selling/trading the XTk for an XT or MW1 to make space, but it would be easier to buy a triple tier keyboard stand I think. And I love those wooden end-caps.

I find it a bit disappointing that nobody from Waldorf comments on this thread to provide additional information about this new synth. it seems to me that if you are hoping for people to shell out that kind of money, you would want to interact and answer questions. Make potential customers feel like you will be there for them.

I'd like to know more about the granular sampling oscillators.

Is anyone home?

I completely agree.
I sent an email to Waldorf requesting dimensions so that I could make sure I had room for it, with my recent studio shuffle. I heard nothing.

I am deciding between, Waldorf Quantum, Modal 8 and Solaris.
Waldorf arnt do me or themselves any favours be not releasing an information... making it easier for me to go f*& it, I'll put the trigger on a competitors synth.
They need to keep me eager, being quite doesnt do that.

I'm pretty sure you can get rough Quantum dimensions without going to university and doing a masters in quantum physics by working out how long and deep a standard sized 5 octave keyboard is then adding 1.5(ish) times that to the depth and about a hundred millimetre on the width. So, given the Sledge has a 5 octave Fatar keybed and is slightly deeper than the Quantum (looking at the keybed to front-panel depth ratios of both), you can say that the Quantum would be about 1000mm x 350mm. That is all-round larger than the Sledge, but should account for the eventual size of the Quantum if it stays at the slightly smaller dimensions to that of the Sledge (from what we have seen).
