Blofeld Modifier Simulator

Get to know your musical partner better!

Despite its size, the Waldorf Blofeld is a complex musical instrument. It is not easy to understand modulations, modifiers and their options. Frequture offers with the Blofeld Modifier Simulator a tool that makes it easy to learn how to use your synthesizer. You can recreate all settings of the Blofeld and get direct visual feedback about your changes. With little experiments you can playfully find out how the modulations work.

Simulator on Computer Screen

You can use and view the following modulation sources: constant values, ADSR envelope and LFO (with all waveforms and options). Of course you can use all modifier algorithms. In addition, the play mode allows you to simulate the signals in real time or slow-motion. So not only can you see how the values change over time, you can also use the trigger button to imitate a keystroke. This way you can start your envelopes and observe how freely synchronized LFOs behave. The simulation speed, zoom and scale display are fully adjustable.
On top of that you get a real-time calculation display that shows you the algorithm and the way modifier values are derived from the sources.
The hidden secrets of your beloved synthesizer are finally revealed!

What makes the Blofeld Modifier Simulator special?
