If only Largo had input ports so it could be fed samples to use, as with Blofeld, or even live feed from other synthesizer output. Largo would truly be a wonderful VST with that addition.

I'm bumping this (as with my other post which I did not know I had inadvertently posted to the Deutsches forum) because I want to know Waldorf's position on enabling loading of wavetables into Largo. It would turn the already powerful Largo into eine Krafthausen. Without the ability to load custom wavetables, I am looking toward acquiring a Micro Q and a Microwave XT, even though hardware prices have gone through the roof. I am not sure about getting a Blofeld, as it would only duplicate the Largo, even though it would be much less expensive than the legacy hardware. A new version of Largo with input would solve the problem nicely. Please consider.

Although, I must admit that, taking the three oscillators together, the first two with wavetables, Largo can produce over 300,000,000 distinct sounds before any suboscillators, LFOs, modulation, filtering, arpeggiation, or effects. Perhaps additional wavetables is asking a bit much, but it would still be nice, and would not require very much additional code.

edit of January 20, 2018:
Hey, Waldorf people, how about this idea? The Largo wavetables are most like fixed length sections of data inside the software. Why not publish the location and length of the wavetable data so that we could use a binary editor to replace the default wavetables with ones of our own design? I am not asking for the Largo source code. I don't want to fiddle with the fuctioning. It is wonderful as it is. But, let's say I want to access a wavetable of barnyard animal sounds, or recordings of gravitational noise of Jupiter. Is there anything wrong with being able to do that? I am going to find those wavetables eventually. I may not publish the information but I will certainly use it for my own projects. Why not we compromise and you provide Largo with a little bit of the Blofeld functionality that Largo does not have?

Le never mind. I have discovered Nave. I still wish Largo could install custom wavetables, but I will stop complaining about it. Having Nave is like having <insert name of your dream girl> as your constant girlfriend. Yes, it's an unnatural love, and for that I am uninterested in apologizing.
