Waldorf Q

“Waldorf Q Rack – please read!.
If you are reading this, you know what it is. There is a fault – the sustain knob has been damaged and does not function and there is a mark below it as the picture shows. I have seen the pots for around £4 on eBay and someone who is handy with a soldering iron I’m sure would get it going easily. There are a few little scuffs you would expect for the age but generally in great condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

““I hate to sell my Waldorf Q but I need the money. It has been an awesome synth! It’s been kept in a smoke free studio environment. It has some wear and there are blemishes. I just ordered a new set of knobs for it that should arrive in the next few days. The knobs on it now have started to do like all original Waldorf knobs do. So you will receive it with all new knobs. I have the manual for it as well and the q card”” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Waldorf Q

“Gorgeous classic VA/Wavetable synth, practically modular in its programming complexity. 16 voices regardless of processor load (unlike the Blofeld and Micro Q). Latest OS, dual filters including PPG and comb filters, tunable sub-oscillators, effects, step sequencers, arpeggiators, etc. New blue-white OLED display and white LEDs that are not too bright for close-up work. Includes custom stained and finished tiger maple rack that angles the synth forward, plus manual and power cord (no wall warts here).

Perfect functional condition, excellent cosmetic condition. No dents, chips or scratches, all knobs and buttons work flawlessly. Kept covered when not in use.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is an original yellow Waldorf Q rack. The finish is in fantastic shape, which is amazing when considering how poorly most of these Nextel painted units have held up. It still has all of the original knobs, which are showing no signs of deterioration. You’ll see in the left-most close up that two of the little caps on top of the knobs are missing. They were missing when I bought the unit, and I tried but could not find replacements. All encoders are clean and functioning properly. The unit also has the last operating system Waldorf released for the Q installed. This is a big win, since many of these early units could not be upgraded past the 2.13 release. OS 3.02 means you get a much improved effects section.
There’s a bit of rack rash that you can see around the screw holes in the close-up shots. Otherwise, she is simply gorgeous.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

” It’s a blue Waldorf Q with the standard 16 voices.

I bought it on this very website a few years ago, but ended up not using it very much. It is clean and in good condition (see photos). I tested it before boxing it up and verified it is fully functional, but here are the known issues:

– Some scuffs and dents on corners.
– Chip in the rubber on cutoff knob.
– Left output is bent inward, but works fine.
– Second ‘C’ key sticks up slightly, about the width of penny or dime.
– A few other small nicks and scratches.

Also, I cleaned it awhile back including the inside and noticed that a pin on the socket for the voice expansion board is bent. If by some chance you happen to have an expansion board you want to install, you will need to carefully bend the pin back into place or install a new header on the board.

Comes with a 6′ power cable, not pictured.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Excellent condition.As expected with instruments of this vintage some of the rotary encoders are showing their age. They work OK, but to prevent excessive knob twirling I recommend cleaning or even replacing them.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This incredible keyboard has unique rich warm sounds I have not been able to create with any of my other synths. It has been gently used in a climate-controlled smoke free home studio and has always been covered when not in use. It is in excellent condition, all features function well, and I have had no problems or issues with it. There are many rack mount Q’s out there on eBay, Reverb, and other sites, but the Waldorf Q 61 key keyboard synth is hard to find, especially in this superb condition. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For your consideration I have a used Waldorf Q synthesizer rack. It is 100% functional and sounds amazing. This Q has all the features that the regular Q has, this is not a micro Q. It has always been in a clean smoke free home. This one is really special because it does not use the same bad quality nextel paint found on older Qs and XTs. This one is the German model so it comes with a US power cord and Euro power cord. Waldorf made it so it can be used as a desktop synth or rack. All of the encoders are working great, no jumping values. This is one of the last Qs Waldorf made, it has better encoders, better paint, different color screen and it has the last board revision 3.3 which can be upgraded up to 32 voices! If you are looking for a Q but don’t have the space for a big heavy keyboard, then this is the one to get.”

“Racked in my smoke-free home studio. Lots of knobs. Excellent condition. Very little wear. Screen is clear. Fantastic Waldorf sound. Check out the high res photos. The color difference is due to the use of a flash on some of the photos” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Waldorf Q

“Fully functional and tested.

All keys work. I disassembled the board, cleaned out all of the dust, and cleaned every key contact.

All encoders, buttons, LEDs, etc. are working. Encoders have no skippiness that I could perceive, but it has been sitting in a box for the last month, so you might want to spin them 50 times in each direction to spread out the lubricant if you notice skipping.

MIDI ports working.

Audio I/O working.

Memory card slot works (Q Card not included).

Pitch and mod wheels are solid and working.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Amazing, great sounding, deep synth. Acclaimed by many.

It works well except for the pots / encoders, some of which are jumpy. I enjoy the synth and find it playable as is, but if the buyer wants the synth fully functional, the pots / encoders would need to be cleaned and/or replaced.

Check out the photos as the case shows a good amount of cosmetic wear. Also note that some of the rubber knobs have cracked / split (a few of which have been saved in a baggie, included).

Includes power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

This one shows a good amount of cosmetic wear. A few of the rubber knobs have cracked / split (most if not all have been saved in a baggie).

Functionally I think it’s great except for the encoders, a number of which can be jumpy. I marked some noticeable offenders with blue “painter’s” tape, but I’m confident there are more. I enjoy the synth and find it playable as is, but if the buyer wants it fully functional, the encoders would need to be addressed (spray cleaned and/or replaced).

Sold as-is, no returns. Includes power cord.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

q “This WALDORF Q synthesizer sounds absolutely amazing and the keys still play like new. This is the later model Q with latest OS installed and with the better OLED display. It comes from a SMOKE FREE, clean environment. It was made in Germany. To say this synthesizer is built like a tank is an understatement. No synthesizer made today can match the build quality except maybe MOOG but thats just a mono, this synth is more like a poly modular. Google the specs and you’ll be blown away with how feature rich this synth is. Nothing else sounds like a yellow Q, this is a must have for musicians and collectors. You will receive the WALDORF Q with the original manual and power cable. I will make sure it is packaged and shipped properly.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

waldorf q “Q

the best synth in the World

> killer tones
> massive flexibility…..dial in any sound you like
> works perfectly
> latest OS ( 3.02 )

> built like a tank

> sounds MASSIVE

+ sound quality is astonishing

There are 2 knobs that have ‘issues’……they do not impact usability. See photo.

>The “routing” knob is wobbly. It works 100%, but it wobbles.

> the “panmod source” knob has a bent shaft. It works 100%, but the shaft is bent.”

The synth is fully functional, updated with the stable 3.02 OS and includes the Q card memory expansion and sounds spectacular. There are some minor cosmetic scuffs (see photos) and the sequencer and volumes knobs are not original, but no jumpy or loose encoders. I ship extremely securely with excessive amounts of anti-static bubble wrap. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Waldorf Q+

waldorf q plus “Waldorf Q+

Up for auction is an exteremely rare Ruby Red Waldorf Q+ Synthesizer, with custom wood end cheeks and very rare Q-Card to expand memory.

Goes without saying that these are rare as hens teeth, and anyone who gets their dirty mitts on them don’t let them go… this is hard to let go of :/

Where to start? Calling the Q+ a “VA” would e doing it a disservice; it’s more akin to a digital modular then just another VA.

100 voices, 16 part mutlitimbrality, 3 oscillators per voice, including wavetables taken from the PPG Wave and a noise generator, 3 LFOs, 16 analog filters, 2 digital filters per voice, 12/24dB Filters (Low pass, band pass, hi pass, notch, comb, ring mod and more), vocoding capability, 4 envelopes, arpreggiator and a sequencer per voice.

16 analog filters make a massive difference to the sound of the oscillator section. They are noticeably different than the digital filters (which are very good anyways, if you’ve never played with a Q you’d be surprised).

In addition to the 16 analog filters, the Q+ gives you 100 voices (the standard Q is 16 voices, or 32 voices with the rare expansion)

Add onto that an arpeggiators and a sequencer per voice.

And wait till you check out the Xphorm function that allows the morphing between two completely different patches, assignable to things like key velocity and the mod wheel.

The Waldorf Q+ is topped off with 8 effects processors (2 per sound that include Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Overdrive, AM, Delay, Reverb, etc.), oh, and add on a very nifty random function, plus drum mapping for dedicated percussion sounds and you have one of the most powerful synthesizers ever made.

From a physical perspective, there’s 58 knobs (all send/receive MIDI), lovely keyboard and pitch/mod wheels, 2 analog audio inputs, 6 outputs and 1 S/PDIF output (44.1kHz / 48kHz switchable), CV control, and of course Midi In/Out/Thru

The power supply is universal, so wil work anywhere in the world. with no need to worry about step up/down transformers.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
