Well, a pure filter box is not an “absolutely” necessary studio tool, is it? Nevertheless, the new Waldorf 2-Pole might be interesting for all of those who like the handsome Rocket Synthesizer (and – especially – its design). For all of those who’ve been waiting for the Rocket Filter with extra CV-options – well, here it is!
Clearly, with this new filter-box Waldorf tries above all to address guitar- and bass-players. However, similar attempts by other manufacturers during the last few decades have shown that guitar players usually do their own thing. They’ve got enough (quality) effects devices known as “stomp-boxes” available. Nevertheless, the 2-Pole is likely to bring great pleasure to any digital or analog synth studio. Keyboard players as well as DJs can spice up their live performances with this handy tool.
A quick note about the 2-Pole connections. The filter-box offers:
- Cutoff CV-In
- Envelope Follower CV-In
- Trigger-In (Gate)
