Waldorf Streichfett

Written in 2015.

Waldorf had already showed great innovations by releasing Blofeld and Rocket. Then they released even more non-traditional synthesizer called Streichfett.

I am a big fan of string sounds. I found that with my Blofeld I was playing string sounds perhaps half of the time. So after my positive feelings on Blofeld and Rocket getting a Streichfett was a natural next step.

  • Delivers a wide spectrum of evolving synth string and choir sounds in all-in-one box format. Can be set for anything from a dry thin 70's beeper to a ridiculously big and fat atmospheric string wall.
  • To my ears the box sounds both very vintage and very good.
  • Is so unique that defines a new musical instrument class.
  • All parameters can be accessed on the fly while playing so it is very easy to create evolving soundscapes and passages.
  • Effects included so can be used on its own unlike Rocket that really needs some external effecting.
  • Looks cool.
  • Not for those who are looking for a general purpose synthesizer.
  • Not an actual con but if you use the effects too much they go easily way over the top.
