Waldorf Iridium

Digital Desktop Synthesizer

With IRIDIUM , Waldorf presents the successful desktop version of the exceptional synthesizer QUANTUM, which can certainly be considered a milestone in the history of synthesizers. Apart from the missing keyboard and the resulting smaller case (in Waldorf KYRA format), the 16 backlit pads immediately catch the eye. These are used, among other things, to program the internal sequencer. The Iridium shines with 16 voices (Quantum: 8 voices) and has eight control voltage inputs and outputs on the back. The analog Dual Lowpass Filter of the Quantum was not adopted, it was replaced by a digital Dual Multimode Filter.

Synthesis

At the heart of the Iridium are its three digital oscillators, each with five selectable synthesis forms:

  • Wavetable: Waldorfstyle with the latest Nave technology including speech synthesis and creation of wavetables from external audio sources
  • Waveform: Waveform with up to 8 simultaneous waveforms per oscillator in detuned or chordal mode with hard sync, warp, PWM and pitchable noise
  • Particle: Granular sampler with multi-sampling and traditional sampling mode
  • Resonator: Exciter with multi-sampling and filterbank modeling
  • Kernel: a meticulously structured tool for creating futuristic experimental and FM-like sounds

The oscillators in themselves can do incredible things and offer an enormous range of different sounds. Since there are even more parameters under the hood that can be modulated over a long period of time, new sound creations should be an ongoing process in the best sense of the word. The filter of the Iridium is an excellent dual multimode filter of digital origin and covers a wide range of resonant and attenuated sounds. The complex signal chain is completed by five simultaneously available effects such as delay, reverb, chorus, flanger or phaser and the Master Compressor.

Modulation

With six loopable envelopes and LFOs each and the complex Modulator, which is a mixture of two LFOs with waveforms and envelopes you can draw (!) yourself, you have enough options at hand besides the usual modulation sources like velocity or aftertouch to fill the 40 entries of the modulation matrix and thus breathe life into the sound at almost any point.

Access

The high-resolution multi-touch display allows easy access to every parameter and visually translates every action on the control panel. With impressive precision, it displays changes in the sound events at various stages of the synthesis process in real time. It has the same size as the Quantum, and is framed with the same set of knobs and buttons.

Sequencer & more

The 16 backlit pads make working with the integrated sequencer immensely easy, while also serving to play individual notes; even parameter locks can be programmed. In addition, an extensively adjustable arpeggiator is integrated into the instrument. If required, you have access to a rich selection of different tone scales.
