    Quantum Expansion

    When WALDORF introduced the Quantum in 2018, it immediately found its way into the studios and hearts of the most acclaimed film composers, producers, musicians, and sound designers. Now five years later, Quantum MK2 further expands upon this incredibly powerful platform.

    Quantum MK2 adds 61-key polyphonic aftertouch from Fatar, increased sampling storage, and improved mechanical design and display. The new 3.0 firmware allows for up to 16 digital filters, or up to 8 analog + 8 digitals.

    Polyphonic Aftertouch

    The Quantum MK2 is the first instrument with a Fatar TP8/SK polyphonic aftertouch keybed. With increased possibilities for musical and gestural expression the keybed the Quantum synthesis engine can be more deeply modulated and texturally explored. The polyphonic aftertouch is highly customizable in multiple dimensions globally as well as for individual keys. The high-resolution graphical display supports visual feedback and control for the customization process. In addition to its internal poly aftertouch keybed, the Quantum MK2 can be controlled by any MPE capable controller by directly connecting to Quantum’s USB host port.

    16 Voices of Polyphony

    Based on an 8-voice analogue dual-filter architecture, the Quantum MKII delivers 16 voices of polyphony in any combination of using digital dual multi-mode filters with the 8 analogue ones. Moreover, the combination of analogue with digital filter opens new sonic possibilities of what Waldorf Music stands for since its beginning: Hybrid digital and analogue synthesis. A new set of allocation modes gives the musician an easy control.

    59GB Sampling Storage

    Another cornerstone of Quantum MK2 is its increased internal sampling storage from a few GB to 59 GB. The Quantum has quickly become the instrument of choice for modern advanced sampling capabilities for sound enthusiasts and cinematic composers from Berlin to Los Angeles. From firmware 1.0 to 3.0 Waldorf Music has listened to the requests and needs of musicians to extend it polyphonic granular sampling engine as well its traditional multi-sample engine.

    Design and Display

    The updated mechanical design and a classy naval blue presents the musician an instrument of beauty and inspiration. The improved mounting of the high-resolution touch display provides

    wider viewing angles and an intuitive way of controlling the more advanced features of the Quantum synthesis engine.

    Sounds and Samples

    Highly acclaimed sound designers from all over the world have contributed to the huge library of factory presets and initial sample content of 2GB. Waldorf Music is proud to have sounds from designers like Richard Devine, Howard Scarr, Reinhold Heil, BT, Matt Johnson, Joerg Huettner, Kevin Schroeder, Sascha Dikiciyan, Kurt Ader Mike Huckaby, Thorsten Quaeschning and many more. All sounds are compatible with Waldorf’s Iridium instruments in both directions.

    Synthesis Platform

    Waldorf Music has updated and improved its Quantum firmware continuously adding new synthesis capabilities and many feature requests by musicians. The Quantum firmware builds together with the Iridium firmware a "Waldorf Synthesis Platform.
