Studiologic Sledge

Virtual Analogue Synthesizer  (2012)

Project  "made" in Italy, derived and licensed from waldorf blofeld  engine


OVERVIEW all plastic yellow-tweety, later wisely made with a black edition,  2x16 digits backlit LCD.  61 keys very light for a five-octave polysynth, sensitive to dynamics and aftertouch, with 35 knob buttons for tweaking (they do transmit control change). 

Terminal connectors:
    Audio OUT: 2x 6,3 mm mono jack (L+R)
    Headphones: 2x 6,3 mm stereo jack
    Pedals: Hold, Expression
    MIDI: In, Out
    USB: USB to Host, MIDI


OSCILLATORS Sledge generates 16 monotimbral voices of polyphony (extended polyphony to 24 note in V2) subtractive digital machine with three audio oscillators (one of which is enabled for reading the Waldorf wavetables), plus a noise generator (white and pink noise). All osc features basic digital waves including sine, triangular, square at 50% duty, ramp with variable symmetry. The 1st oscillator OSC 1 is special an can be assigned to old fashioned ppg wavetable with  66 possible wavetables and 99 different cycles of waveforms ( wave reading) or assigned to modulation . OSC 2 and 3 can be routed to a minimal form of FM synthesis (but don't get too excited). Oscillator hard sync (OSC2 to OSC3).

VERSION 2.0 Combine and play two sounds at the same time, in Split or Layer mode, Pitch and Hold functions can be enabled separately for the Lower and Upper sounds in Dual Mode, allowing you to keep the sample loop running while playing the upper sound. In addition, Sound samples and new waves can be loaded in the internal memory (64 mb) played by OSC 1 and modifiable by all parameters of the control panel, adding other oscillators, setting filters, envelopes and effects.

ENVELOPE  two dedicated ADSR envelope generators. The two envelopes can be triggered by single or multiple trigger

LFO  two LFOs generate sine waves, triangular, square, postive ramp and S&H; the modulation amplitude is bipolar adjustable, the modulation speed (adjustable with the Speed ​​control). Third one assigned to mod wheel.

FILTER single digital filter up to self-osc.
LowPass (12dB / 24dB)
Highpass (12dB / 24dB)
BandPass (12dB / 24dB)
Classic cutoff, Resonance, Keyboard Tracking, Drive and Envelope Amount.

Effect / arpeggiator and memory

EFFECTS two Effect 1 and Effect 2 modules; the first module is dedicated to short modulations (Chorus, Phaser and Flanger), with adjustable Rate and Depth controls; the second module is dedicated to Delay and Reverb, with Time and Level controls.
IN REV2, delay and reverb have better performance and can be used at the same time.

ARPEGGIATOR with Latch, variable direction and 5 octaves Range,  you can insert your note as played.Can be synched to external clock.

MEMORY Up to 999 programmable sounds , which 100 contain factory programs.
