No one expected this Rocket launch, which is in clear violation of several UN resolutions and basic laws of physics. Unlike conventional missiles, this one comes in a square shape and will be sold world-wide in complete ignorance of German governments exports restrictions.

It's incredible sound is much more louder than the legendary Saturn V engine, and never before has this been achieved with such an enormous fun factor. It features an analog multimode VCF with lowpass, bandpass, and highpass, resonance up to self oscillation and beyond, a powerful monophonic oscillator section with Ultra High Density Sawtooth and unison for chord play.

Furthermore equipped with a powerful Arpeggiator and a destructive Booster circuit, this Rocket is technologically way ahead of all current defense systems.

Rocket is an ideal fun sound design machine, which in combination with its extremely attractive price, will appeal to any sound designer and musician interested in quality sounds. It works as a stand-alone instrument or in any imaginable music production environment. But its most important feature is of course its sound: a real Waldorf synthesizer, powerful, direct and with a lot of love for the details.

And of course, this Rocket is 100% Made in Germany - With Love!

The Waldorf Rocket is great. It's a digital synth with analog filter and makes a solid companion to your existing setup. Run your sounds/instruments through for maximum gratification. Nice job, Waldorf.

  • Fantastic Add-On Analog Synth

The Waldorf Rocket is an excellent way to add analog synth tone to your rig. It has 8 oscillators, (which are digital) that are used in unison to create polyphonic chords. The Analog VCF has a nice grainy tone, and a smooth cutoff control. There is a boost circuit that adds growl to the tone; essentially a synth overdrive. It connects to any midi keyboard via MIDI or USB, and it is USB powered. There is a range of arpeggiator patterns, which combined with the VCF controls can create a huge range of sounds. It has a small footprint, ideal for atop your keyboard or on a desktop. There is a VCF in as well, so if you have another synth, or better yet, a guitar and filter pedal (like the Moogerfooger or Electoharmonix), you can modulate the frequency with that. You can't beat it for the price.
