Read all of the instructions before operating your device.

Waldorg corresponding sound programs will not sended within this dump. The variety of tones among all Waveforms in the Blofeld are nearly inexhaustible. With a simple example you will understand the structure of the Blofeld handling easily. The following parameters refer to the selected oscillator.

This common envelope starts as soon as the first note is played.

Set Cutoff to a medium value. The results can be dramatic – much more so than those any sample playback based system could ever produce. It allows manhal to create arpeggios in the sequence of played notes. When you press one of the Parameter matrix buttons shortly the corresponding button is activated and the corresponding Edit menu is shown in the display.

If a single Sound dump is received, it is temporarily stored in its respective edit buffer. Recalling Edited Programs You can void edits at any time and return to the original program. The Blofeld cannot be played during this time. All later notes use these envelopes, but sound in the pitch you’ve played. If a wavetable is selected, PWM Amount determines the amount of the wavetable modulation. Set Oscillator 2 to play one octave and 7 semitones higher, apply an envelope to its pitch with positive amount and you get a screaming sync sound.

The program name can use up to 16 characters. You can create further movement by applying an LFO to the comb filter cutoff. The slope can be 12dB or 24dB per octave. The contents of this manual may be updated at any time without prior notice.


If you turn it faster, it accelerates as well. These modules are called Modulators. To do this please press the filter section button until the LED for Filter 2 lights up in the Filter section.

However, there are a few things you should check before you transmit system exclusive data to the Blofeld: Sound Parameter if you want to only play the “root note” of a chord miscellaneous step data Step in a bass sound. To accomplish this each sound contains 4 extra digits in the sound name to define its sound category.

The interior of the chassis contains no components that require user maintenance. If you play notes that span more than one octave, they are still kept in the note list and played back before the note list is transposed.

From a technical point of view ring modulation is the multiplication of two oscillators’ signals. The modulation destination is aaldorf component such as a filter or a VCA. Sustain lasts until Program Change the trigger is terminated.

Once an incoming trigger is received, the envelope runs through the Attack and Decay phases until it reaches the programed Sustain level. This generates a deeper detuning and colorizes the signal. Walforf and Sustain 2 level of Envelope 4 E4 Rel. If you turn the control slowly, the value changes very smoothly, too. Since there are two filters, you could use the Filter Envelope on one of them, and blofe,d envelope on the second filter, buy setting this parameter for that filter to zero and use the Modulation Matrix for the other used envelope.

The sine wave is the most basic building block of vlofeld waveform. In addition, the Modifier unit can process various mathematical operations and functions on the modulation signals. Please refer button shortly if Auto Edit is set to on or for some time if to the Appendix for detailled explaination of all the types. Clocked Delay M This effect type is only available for the Effect 2 unit.

When the setting is left 64, wwldorf sound is panned far left; when the setting is right 63, it is panned far right. Only notes with a key number lower or equal to the selected value are passed through.

Blofeld Pictures & Manual

Oscillator Section The Blofeld offers three oscillators that nearly use the same parameters for editing. If you select a new program while the Compare function is active, the Compare status is automatically terminated. Saldorf “Decay” describes the descent rate of an envelope once manula Attack phase has reached its zenith and the envelope drops to the level defined for the Sustain value. You can bring more movement into the sound by modulating the cutoff frequency via the LFOs, the envelopes or the Keytrack parameter of the filter.

Therefore, the sine wave sounds a little artificial to the ear. We also used a uniform set of symbols to show you topics of particular interest or significance. You will receive a personal machine. Use the Selection dial to select the desired dump function: However, you will still be able to wzldorf slight differences when you change the Resonance because of phase changes.


Pedal Input An electrical sustain pedal switch connected to this input O enables you to sustain played notes as long as you press the pedal. Parameter Controls of the Filter and Amp Envelopes The Blofeld envelopes allow you to manipulate sound parameters via rate or timed modulations. After a short while all four parameter and the values wwaldorf shown in the display.

If you select any waveform other than Pulse or the wavetables, this parameter does not have any effect. For instance, an envelope that manusl the cutoff frequency of a filter opens and closes this filter so that some of the signal’s frequencies are filtered out. Just hit a chord at each new bar.
