WP_Features_Waldorf_Stocking Stuffers_Dec2015Waldorf 2-Pole Analog Filter
There is nothing like the sound of a real analog filter—hardware, knobs, switches that plugs into your gear. Since its very beginnings, Waldorf has been renowned for their 4-pole, x-Pole and AFB16 filters, a big part of the sound of the Wave, Q+ and Pulse synthesizers. Waldorf has 'ported' a 2-pole analog filter into a standalone, stomp box-sized unit for guitar players, DJs or keyboard players. The 2-Pole uses a one-knob/one-function style interface. It is easy to add filter sweeps that can be modulated with the onboard LFO or get funky by connecting any pedal controller. It sells for $329. waldorf-music.info/2-pole-overview
